Pigeon Lake hosts fourth annual art show

Pigeon Lake hosts fourth annual art show

Artists from all over Alberta met at Village at Pigeon Lake Aug. 10 and 11

For the past three years in August, Leon and I have had an art show out at the Village at Pigeon Lake to honour the time we had our Bay 12 Gallery there. We recently held our 4th annual show!

We had begun inviting our artists back in alphabetical order, and this year we did it again as we moved further up our list. There were 10 new invited artists, plus Leon and I ( who always get to be in it! ) to make a dozen.

Artists from Ponoka, St. Albert, Calgary, Medicine Hat, Spruce Grove, Warburg, Bluffton, Pigeon Lake, and Wetaskiwin. They included book binders, potters, painters, print makers, photographers, sculptors in stone and fabric, metal workers, jewellers.

The three artists from Calgary were all from one family which is kind of cool, the Haglunds, Mom, Dad and daughter.
