Though the snow was blowing and the weather was bone chilling, it didn’t stop most of Lethbridge’s art community from coming out and taking in numerous exhibitions opening , Nov. 20.
Everything started at the Owl Acoustic Lounge where at least 15 artists were participating in November’s afternoon Dr. Sketchy’s. Claire Lint, adorned in top hat and a sexy cabaret outfit posed in a variety of jazz movement inspired poses, while the soundtrack to the hit movie Chicago played softly in the background.
Not very many people were there to see Sarah Barr’s video installation “ In A Thin Voice.” playing in the window of Mary-Anne McTrowe and David Hoffos’ Chinatown studio, probably because of the weather.
The Southern Alberta Art Gallery had a decent as expected turnout for their new exhibitions, — Christian Giroux and Daniel Young’s “Boule” and Lynda Gammon, Matt Harle and Elspeth’s “Silent as Glue.”
“Boule” featured a variety of colourful Ikea product turned into art, so there were a variety of colourful boxes and unusual shapes placed all over the floor of the main floor gallery.
“Silent As Glue,” in the upper gallery featured a variety of items stuck to the wall of the upper gallery including broomsticks painted black and a pretty cool venetian blind/ photograph display.
