Chasing the Light

Carol Lynn Gilchrist - Chasing the Light art exhibit in the Corridor Community Gallery, January 3 – February 28, 2020 The Corridor Community Gallery is hosted by The City of Red Deer Culture Services in the lower level of the Recreation Centre (4501 47A Avenue). It provides a public venue for local artists and allows us to share in the talents and interests of fellow community members. Artist Statement: "Chasing the light" is a deeply personal response to the death of my brother last year. In April I packed away my watercolours; their transparency and lightness no longer suited me as I grappled to find a way to paint and work through this period of grief. I acknowledged that there was much darkness within me and so I began to search for those moments which offered me lightness. A light to see, to feel, to reflect and perhaps to return to balance and a place of joy. Late spring and summer I found myself travelling often and on those trips there was a feeling that I was chasing the light. I would catch a glimpse of the sun just over the next hill, or behind a tree or peeking out from a looming and threatening cloud. These chases took on a special meaning; I found my muse in the dramatic skies and open plains, and I also found a source of healing. Working in the studio, I put all reference material aside. I began by laying in thin transparent washes of pink or orange; lots of orange just because it was his favorite colour! I then rubbed, scraped and layered the paint using a variety of tools and techniques. I just responded to my previous colour and my last gestural mark. These acrylic paintings are intuitive in nature, no grand designs, as the concepts just emerged and I remained open to the process. For inquiries and pricing contact: clgilchrist@shaw.ca

Feline Lair: An Ephemeral Expression of Ice and Snow

This show will visually articulate the artists’ concept and journey in creating a room at the famous Icehotel in Jukkasjarvi, Sweden this past November and December of 2019. There will also be images of previous snow sculpting that the artists have curated from their earlier works. Their hotel room, Feline Lair, was among 14 other decoratively themed rooms which were chosen by jury and then created by artists from 16 different countries. Each group had 16 days to complete their concept. They worked with snow, snice and ice from the Thorne River to create their magical settings. Dawn and Brian will have their maquettes, drawings, photographs and descriptions to articulate the process of this cavernous room and their experiences. image credit: photograph by Asaf Kliger

Each group had 16 days to complete their concept. They worked with snow, snice and ice from the Thorne River to create their magical settings. Dawn and Brian will have their maquettes, drawings, photographs and descriptions to articulate the process of this cavernous room and their experiences. image credit: photograph by Asaf Kliger

Chasing the Light

solo art exhibit by Carol Lynn Gilchrist JAn 3-Feb 28, 2020 First Friday Opening Jan 3 from 3-5 p.m. Artist's Statement: "Chasing the light" is a deeply personal response to the death of my brother last year. In April I packed away my watercolours; their transparency and lightness no longer suited me as I grappled to find a way to paint and work through this period of grief. I acknowledged that there was much darkness within me and so I began to search for those moments which offered me lightness. A light to see, to feel, to reflect and perhaps to return to balance and a place of joy. Late spring and summer I found myself travelling often and on those trips there was a feeling that I was chasing the light. I would catch a glimpse of the sun just over the next hill, or behind a tree or peeking out from a looming and threatening cloud. These chases took on a special meaning; I found my muse in the dramatic skies and open plains, and I also found a source of healing. Working in the studio, I put all reference material aside. I began by laying in thin transparent washes of pink or orange; lots of orange just because it was his favorite colour! I then rubbed, scraped and layered the paint using a variety of tools and techniques. I just responded to my previous colour and my last gestural mark. These acrylic paintings are intuitive in nature, no grand designs, as the concepts just emerged and I remained open to the process.

Reel Movie Mondays: Honeyland

Hosted by the Red Deer Museum + Art Gallery and Carnival Cinemas, in partnership with Film Circuit, presented by TIFF. Directed by Ljubomir Stefanov &Tamara Kotevska, Rated PG Macedonia | 85 minutes | Turkish w/ English subtitles, MK2 About the Film: Nestled in an isolated region deep within the Balkans, Hatidze Muratova lives with her ailing mother in a village without roads, electricity, or running water. She’s the last in a long line of Macedonian beekeepers, eking out a living farming honey in small batches. When an itinerant family arrives, Hatidze’s peaceful existence faces upheaval. Though she optimistically offers the family her beepkeeping advice, the family’s patriarch soon casts Hatidze’s advice aside in his hunt for profit — breaching the natural order and threatening Hatidze’s means of survival. Honeyland is a portrait of the delicate balance between humankind and nature, a glimpse at a fast disappearing way of life, and a testament to one extraordinary woman’s resilience. "This lovely, heartrending movie leaves you marveling at her history and thinking anxiously for her future - and wondering, perhaps, why her example of basic decency has become so endangered." —Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times Principal Cast: Hatidze Muratova, Nazife Muratova, Hussein Sam, Ljutvie Sam Tickets are on sale now!

Chasing the Light

solo art exhibit by Carol Lynn Gilchrist JAn 3-Feb 28, 2020 First Friday Opening Jan 3 from 3-5 p.m. Artist's Statement: "Chasing the light" is a deeply personal response to the death of my brother last year. In April I packed away my watercolours; their transparency and lightness no longer suited me as I grappled to find a way to paint and work through this period of grief. I acknowledged that there was much darkness within me and so I began to search for those moments which offered me lightness. A light to see, to feel, to reflect and perhaps to return to balance and a place of joy. Late spring and summer I found myself travelling often and on those trips there was a feeling that I was chasing the light. I would catch a glimpse of the sun just over the next hill, or behind a tree or peeking out from a looming and threatening cloud. These chases took on a special meaning; I found my muse in the dramatic skies and open plains, and I also found a source of healing. Working in the studio, I put all reference material aside. I began by laying in thin transparent washes of pink or orange; lots of orange just because it was his favorite colour! I then rubbed, scraped and layered the paint using a variety of tools and techniques. I just responded to my previous colour and my last gestural mark. These acrylic paintings are intuitive in nature, no grand designs, as the concepts just emerged and I remained open to the process.

I then rubbed, scraped and layered the paint using a variety of tools and techniques. I just responded to my previous colour and my last gestural mark. These acrylic paintings are intuitive in nature, no grand designs, as the concepts just emerged and I remained open to the process.

Chasing the Light

Carol Lynn Gilchrist - Chasing the Light art exhibit in the Corridor Community Gallery, January 3 – February 28, 2020 The Corridor Community Gallery is hosted by The City of Red Deer Culture Services in the lower level of the Recreation Centre (4501 47A Avenue). It provides a public venue for local artists and allows us to share in the talents and interests of fellow community members. Artist Statement: "Chasing the light" is a deeply personal response to the death of my brother last year. In April I packed away my watercolours; their transparency and lightness no longer suited me as I grappled to find a way to paint and work through this period of grief. I acknowledged that there was much darkness within me and so I began to search for those moments which offered me lightness. A light to see, to feel, to reflect and perhaps to return to balance and a place of joy. Late spring and summer I found myself travelling often and on those trips there was a feeling that I was chasing the light. I would catch a glimpse of the sun just over the next hill, or behind a tree or peeking out from a looming and threatening cloud.

Feline Lair: An Ephemeral Expression of Ice and Snow

This show will visually articulate the artists’ concept and journey in creating a room at the famous Icehotel in Jukkasjarvi, Sweden this past November and December of 2019. There will also be images of previous snow sculpting that the artists have curated from their earlier works. Their hotel room, Feline Lair, was among 14 other decoratively themed rooms which were chosen by jury and then created by artists from 16 different countries. Each group had 16 days to complete their concept. They worked with snow, snice and ice from the Thorne River to create their magical settings. Dawn and Brian will have their maquettes, drawings, photographs and descriptions to articulate the process of this cavernous room and their experiences. image credit: photograph by Asaf Kliger

Reel Movie Mondays: Pain And Glory

Hosted by the Red Deer Museum + Art Gallery and Carnival Cinemas, in partnership with Film Circuit, presented by TIFF. Directed by Pedro Almodóvar, Rated 14A Spain | 113 minutes | Spanish w/ English subtitles, Mongrel Media About the Film: A deeply personal work from one of the world’s foremost filmmakers, Pain and Glory is pure Almodóvar: inventive and irreverent, poignant and exhilarating. Chronicling the existential odyssey of a filmmaker confronting the autumn of his life, the Spanish auteur’s 21st feature immerses us in the thrall of memory (and the fleeting bliss of narcotics) while celebrating art as a balm for the burdens of mortality. Afflicted with creative stagnancy and a cluster of physical ailments, Salvador (Antonio Banderas, who won the Best Actor prize at Cannes for his performance) finds himself drifting into uncharted waters when a revival screening of his controversial classic Sabor reunites him with that film’s star, Alberto (Asier Etxeandia). A longtime junkie, Alberto lures Salvador into seeking solace in opiates, and also reminds him of a script that Salvador wrote and abandoned long ago. Along with this forgotten text comes a flood of old acquaintances and vivid memories — some involving Salvador’s beloved mother (Penélope Cruz, Everybody Knows, The Queen of Spain), others to do with an old flame ravaged by addiction. Infused with dazzling colour and emotional dynamism, Pain and Glory marks another inspired collaboration between Almodóvar and his core creative team of cinematographer José Luis Alcaine, production designer Antxón Gómez, and composer Alberto Iglesias. It’s the cast, however, who render this memoir-fiction hybrid so achingly resonant. Cruz, who was nominated for an Oscar for her work in Almodóvar’s Volver, imbues her role with her trademark vivacity, while Banderas has never been more charismatic and moving in a role at once grounded in authentic experience and elevated by flights of wild imagination. “Antonio Banderas gives his best, most committed performance in years as a film director looking back over his life in Pain and Glory, a typically rich, layered film from director Pedro Almodóvar.” —Adam Graham, The Detroit News Tickets are on sale now!

Carol Lynn Gilchrist - Chasing the Light art exhibit in the Corridor Community Gallery, January 3 – February 28, 2020 The Corridor Community Gallery is hosted by The City of Red Deer Culture Services in the lower level of the Recreation Centre (4501 47A Avenue). It provides a public venue for local artists and allows us to share in the talents and interests of fellow community members. Artist Statement: "Chasing the light" is a deeply personal response to the death of my brother last year. In April I packed away my watercolours; their transparency and lightness no longer suited me as I grappled to find a way to paint and work through this period of grief. I acknowledged that there was much darkness within me and so I began to search for those moments which offered me lightness. A light to see, to feel, to reflect and perhaps to return to balance and a place of joy. Late spring and summer I found myself travelling often and on those trips there was a feeling that I was chasing the light. I would catch a glimpse of the sun just over the next hill, or behind a tree or peeking out from a looming and threatening cloud. These chases took on a special meaning; I found my muse in the dramatic skies and open plains, and I also found a source of healing. Working in the studio, I put all reference material aside. I began by laying in thin transparent washes of pink or orange; lots of orange just because it was his favorite colour! I then rubbed, scraped and layered the paint using a variety of tools and techniques. I just responded to my previous colour and my last gestural mark. These acrylic paintings are intuitive in nature, no grand designs, as the concepts just emerged and I remained open to the process. For inquiries and pricing contact: clgilchrist@shaw.ca

Feline Lair: An Ephemeral Expression of Ice and Snow

This show will visually articulate the artists’ concept and journey in creating a room at the famous Icehotel in Jukkasjarvi, Sweden this past November and December of 2019. There will also be images of previous snow sculpting that the artists have curated from their earlier works. Their hotel room, Feline Lair, was among 14 other decoratively themed rooms which were chosen by jury and then created by artists from 16 different countries. Each group had 16 days to complete their concept. They worked with snow, snice and ice from the Thorne River to create their magical settings. Dawn and Brian will have their maquettes, drawings, photographs and descriptions to articulate the process of this cavernous room and their experiences. image credit: photograph by Asaf Kliger

Reel Movie Mondays: The Body Remembers When The World Broke Open

Hosted by the Red Deer Museum + Art Gallery and Carnival Cinemas, in partnership with Film Circuit, presented by TIFF. Directed by Elle-Máijá Tailfeathers & Kathleen Hepburn, Rated 14A Canada/Norway | 105 minutes | English, Level Film About the Film: In an audacious act of heroism and kindness, Áila (Elle-Máijá Tailfeathers) chooses to console a young woman she finds barefoot and sobbing in the streets. She soon discovers that Rosie (Violet Nelson) has just escaped an assault by her boyfriend. Compelled to take action, Áila chooses to bring Rosie into her home and, over the course of the evening, the two women explore the after-effect of this traumatic event. The Body Remembers When the World Broke Open is a brilliant, poignant collaboration between two of Canada’s brightest — and boldest — filmmakers. Tailfeathers, a member of the Kainai First Nation as well as Sámi from Norway, triples as lead, co-writer, and co-director. She shares writing and directing with Kathleen Hepburn, whose 2017 film Never Steady, Never Still premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival and was named to TIFF’s Canada’s Top Ten list. Using 16mm and presenting their narrative in “real time,” the filmmakers craft a delicate intimacy, which lends emotion to this remarkable story of two women’s resilience, strength, and mutual support. Taking its title from an essay by Indigenous poet Billy-Ray Belcourt, and based on a watershed moment in Tailfeathers’ life, this story of a chance encounter between two women — living in the same Vancouver neighbourhood, but coming from distinct worlds of class and lived experience — reveals the necessity for Indigenous people to look out for each other in a society that’s too often indifferent to their existence. “As poetic as its title, The Body Remembers When the World Broke Open cannot be understated for its power and must not be erased from the conversation.” —Aaron Berry, Film Inquiry Principal Cast: Elle-Máijá Tailfeathers, Violet Nelson, Charlie Hannah, Barbara Eve Harris, Jay Cardinal Villeneuve Tickets are on sale now!

Reel Movie Mondays: Portrait of a Lady on Fire

Hosted by the Red Deer Museum + Art Gallery and Carnival Cinemas, in partnership with Film Circuit, presented by TIFF. Directed by Céline Sciamma, NYR France | 119 minutes | French w/English subtitles, MK2 About the Film: Winner of both the Queer Palm and Best Screenplay Awards at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, the fourth feature from French writer-director Céline Sciamma (Girlhood) is an exquisite portrait of hidden love, art, eros, and the gaze. Set in 18th-century Brittany, Portrait of a Lady on Fire follows Marianne (Noémie Merlant), an artist commissioned by an Italian noblewoman (Valeria Golino) to paint a portrait of her reclusive daughter, Héloïse (Adèle Haenel, The Unknown Girl, The Forbidden Room), who is soon to be married. However, there are peculiar conditions of this assignment; Marianne must never announce to Héloïse the objective of her visit. Instead, Marianne is to act as a companion to Héloïse, escorting her on walks while closely observing her subject so as to render her likeness on canvas in secret. Dissatisfied with her initial portrait, Marianne petitions her patroness for a second chance. In frustration and growing kinship, Marianne confesses the ruse to Héloïse, procuring her cooperation and allowing the women to forge a much closer bond — one that will lead to a passionate intimacy. “It’s a great example of how a well-told story, with vivid characters, can seep right into your bones and keep you thinking for days afterward — and the pleasure felt while watching it isn’t negligible either.” —Stephanie Zacharek, Time Magazine Principal Cast: Noémie Merlant, Adèle Haenel, Luàna Bajrami, Valeria Golino Tickets are on sale now!
