Art inspired by various journeys can be seen during First Friday gallery openings

Paintings, prints by various local artists are on display

Watch for art inspired by water, as well as journeys across time, at Red Deer’s First Friday art gallery openings in March.

Juried pieces by members of the Red Deer Arts Council will be shown in the mixed-media exhibit Planes, Trains and Automobiles — Journeys From the Past into the Future, until April 23 in the Kiwanis Gallery, downstairs at the Red Deer Public Library. A First Friday reception will be held from 6-8 p.m. in the gallery operated by the Red Deer Arts Council.

Along the water theme is Falls: Paintings by James Trevelyan, a Red Deer College art instructor. They can be seen from March 3 to April 23 at the Welikoklad Event Centre. The First Friday reception is from 7 to 9 p.m.

Also, What The Water Gave Me, oil and acrylic paintings by Larissa Hauck, are showing at the Harris-Warke Gallery, upstairs at Sunworks on Ross Street, until March 25. A First Friday reception will be held from 6-8 p.m.

The printmaking exhibit Re-Growth, by Layla Billey Thordarson, is at the Hub on Ross from March 1-29. A Friday reception will be held from 4-6 p.m.

The Red Deer Museum and Art Gallery offers one of the last chances to see two exhibits: Paintings by the Group of Seven and the Alberta artists they inspired, and Making a Good First Impression printmaking display. There will be a tour of the Group of Seven exhibit at the First Friday reception, which goes from 5 to 8 p.m. for both displays.

Other art can also be viewed around the city, although there are no First Friday openings for the following exhibits:

– Works by Dawn Candy and Robin Lambert at the Viewpoint Gallery, in the City of Red Deer Culture Services building, 3827-39th Street.

– Photos by members of the Central Alberta Photographic Society in the Corridor Gallery, downstairs at the Red Deer Recreation Centre.

– Works by RDC art students Tania Holzli, Melisa Stenset and Bailee Stewart in the Marjorie Wood Gallery in the Kerry Wood Nature Centre.

– Drawings and watercolours by Red Deer artist Erin Boake in the white gallery, connected to Sunworks.
