Hand-thrown pottery mugs, paintings of horses and sculptures of animals will be among the items available at the Medicine Hills Art Show and Sale.

The event will take place at the Blindman Valley Ag Centre from noon to 8 p.m. on Aug. 7, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Aug. 8 and from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Aug. 9. In its fifth year, the show will feature the work of 16 artists from Alberta, Saskatchewan, Montana and Arizona.

The weaving of Kathy Thorne and Frieda Clark will be on display, along with the sculptures of owls, bears and bison done by Montana artist Sam Terakedis and the equine art of Lacombe-based Kim Penner.

Bentley artist Sheila Kelba-Warawa will show her fanciful ceramics made of playful roosters, fish and more. Edmonton potter Arne Handley will display various items. Henri de Groot, who has a studio near Edmonton, will be at the event featuring his realistic portraits of western life.

Organizer Wanda Whaley started the show five years ago and is one of the artists featured in it. Her work features horses and bison painted on slate, hide or bark.

Whaley said the show has a natural theme, and the focus of the show is on original work by artists. She said the quality of the work is of a high calibre and the show and sale is second only to the art show and sale during the Calgary Stampede.

Admission to the show is free.
