Lynne Grillmair’s exhibit at the AGOG features paintings of the Rocky and Purcell mountain ranges

This is your last week to check Lynne Grillmair’s exhibit of paintings at the Art Gallery of Golden.

“Out Our Back Door” features acrylic paintings of the Rocky and Purcell mountain ranges that are just out our back door.

Grillmair, after working various jobs including chef, attended the Alberta College of Art in 1991 to hone her rusty drawing skill. By 1996 she was painting full time, and focused on experimentation rather than commercial production.

She is very interested in process, so a lot of time is spent exploring different materials and ideas to create a visually interesting and exciting piece of work. She uses acrylics, enhances surfaces by texturizing with gel mediums, papers, sand, and bits and pieces of saved, found objects that catch her eye.

With texture and colour she composes works that deal with themes like circularity, music, nature (such as with her current exhibit in Golden), tactility, and passage of time, to mention a few.

In 2003, after being an active member of the Federation of Canadian Artists for six years, she received Associate Signature Status.

She has had numerous showcases of her work all over western Canada, including shows in Calgary, Invermere, Canmore, Silver Star, Chilliwack, and now Golden.

“Out Our Back Door” will remain at the gallery until April 5. Go to www.kickinghorseculture.ca for AGOG hours, and for other Kicking Horse Culture events.
