Kicking Horse Culture and the Art Gallery of Golden is very pleased to present the Golden & Area “A” Art Guild in a group show at the Art Gallery of Golden opening with a “meet the artist” reception from 5 to 7pm on Friday, September 9. All are very welcome.
About the Guild, Krys Sikora writes,
“The Golden and Area “A” Art guild began in the fall of 2014. Denise English, one of our members saw a need to help artists in our community come together to foster friendship, organize workshops and have a location where art can happen on a regular basis. In the early winter of 2015, a small group started meeting at the Senior Centre every Monday. The Senior Society was instrumental in providing space for the group, simply by accepting a $20 yearly membership to the Society.
“Eighteen months later the group has 15 artists that meet regularly at the Centre. The talent is growing and the support that members provide each other is amazing! The group has organized a number of workshops; and with their partners and staff from the College of the Rockies, has engaged a multitude of instructors from every discipline of the art world.
“Where is the future? We would like to grow our group and invite more artists to participate. We would like to have an additional group that meets at night so that artists that have a regular work schedule can participate. We also hope to continue our workshops, help celebrate Canada’s 150 year birthday by creating a group project and be able to display our art annually in a show.”
The group show is curated by Jane Tevelein Doel and Janis Dyck. Make a date for the opening reception on Friday Sept. 9 to meet the artists in person.
