Handcrafted Jewelry — Designed to be Different

ARTember’s Art Show & Sale

Leave a comment

Airdrie’s ARTember kicked off last Friday with the 3rd annual Art Show & Sale in the large showroom at Cam Clark Ford.

Nearly 30 artists had work for sale — painting, photography, wood turning, jewelry, bronze sculpture, wood carving and more. All the artists are members of ARTS (Airdrie Regional ARTS Society).

Here are a few who caught my eye.

Darryl Bernsten has been taking photographs for a long time but only recently begun to show his work professionally. His photo titled “Wheat” shows amazing detail.

John Smythe is a wood turner. His turned and decorated “Butterfly” vase won first place in the Woodturning Section of the 2013 Calgary Stampede Western Showcase. The judges also awarded it “Best of Show” for all woodworking entries.

Rick Berg has been painting for about 25 years and is best known for his wildlife and landscape work, like this piece titled “Mt. Assiniboine”.

Ken Vicketts is a wood carver. This pair of gannets won Best of Show in the Wildlife category at the Pacific Brant Carving and Art Show.

All in all, it was a great event. 😉

Beads? What can I say — they snuck up on me when I wasn't looking. Now I'm hooked.
