CANADA HOUSE GALLERY
“Humanity is an integral part of creation. Humor is spiritual sustenance. Respect for the natural world, and our place in it, is the key to personal understanding. We are magical beings living in a magical world.”

Artist Terry McCue is an Ojibway Indian from the Curve Lake First Nation, in southeastern Ontario. Terry moved to Alberta in 1976 and continues to call it home. For nineteen years, Terry worked as a facilitator conducting workshops across Canada to train substance abuse workers in Native communities. During that time he worked as a freelance illustrator, producing a variety of works including posters, book covers, and illustrations for addiction manuals. He used this work to continually develop his skills as an artist. Terry’s work can be found in private and corporate collections in Canada and the United States.

CARTER-RYAN GALLERY
In honour of Indigenous Day and celebrating family, Cree artist Jason Carter pays homage to the beauty of his home, Treaty 8 - (Northern Alberta) and John D’Or, Little Red River Cree Nation. Brilliant sculptures depicting the sacred Buffalo, paintings illuminating the heavily treed homefront lit up by northern lights and honouring a culture rich with story and tradition is not to be missed.

LUXTON HOME MUSEUM
Buckskins and Beadwork at Beaver Lodge
Beaver Lodge is open for Gallery Hop. Experience this amazing 1914 building and an exhibit of dresses, jackets and moccasins from the Luxton collection.

The Luxton family had deep relationships with the people of Morley - Georgina Luxton grew up on the reservation, Norman Luxton worked with them, Eleanor Luxton maintained her parents connections - they all considered them best friends.

View our displays regarding the language and reasoning behind Land Acknowledgement. Acknowledging the land is an important part of reconciliation. To create understanding, acknowledging the land on which we stand honours the authentic history of Turtle Island (North America), its original people and the whole story of this land and this country.


MOUNTAIN GALLERIES at The Fairmont
Artist in Residence Linda Wilder
"Art is a way of life and I create 24 hours a day…maybe not holding a brush, but by seeing, thinking and feeling.”
With intuitive energy and the use of bold strokes, light, and texture, Linda strives to capture the mood and emotion of her environment. Her paintings appear vividly representational, but upon closer inspection, one can see the intimate nuances and abstract tendencies which elevate and enrich her work.


WALTER PHILLIPS GALLERY at BANFF CENTRE
Walter Phillips Gallery will be open from 12:30 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. for the Gallery Hop with a tour of our current exhibition Guidelines, featuring work by Carmen Papalia with Heather Kai Smith, at 2:00 p.m. The exhibition, this land is lonely for us curated by Indigenous Curatorial Research Practicum Sylvia Dreaver will also be open in the Walter Phillips Gallery, Satellite Space located in the Eric Harvie Theatre, West Lobby.
