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

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.

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

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.

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

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
