Opening Reception:
Saturday April 15th, 1-4pm (artist in attendance)

Join us at The Edge Gallery YYC (Calgary) for an Easter celebration featuring painter, Judith Zinkan!
Judith Zinkan began her art career attending the Fine Arts program at the University of Calgary, University of Houston and the Alberta College of Art in the 1970s. She completed many Emma Lake workshops with guest artists: John McLean, William Perehudoff, Patterson Ewen, Kenneth Noland, Doug Haynes, Terry Fenton, Robert Christie, Robert Shuebrook, Kim Dorland, David Alexander, from the 1970's to the 2000's. Her work can be found in many corporate and public collections across Canada.

Judith's still life and landscape works have evolved into an impressionistic style, where the perspective is illusive, and challenges the viewer into a sense of definition, through simplified shape, color and texture of the paint creating a complexity in the artwork.

Looking Back - David Foxcroft - The Edge Gallery CANMORE

David Foxcroft graduated in 1977 from the Alberta College of Art in Fine Arts with a major in painting. Since that time he has been awarded numerous project grants from Canada Council and the Alberta Foundation for the Arts. His work is published in: Young Contemporaries ’80, London Regional Art Gallery; A Measure of Success, the Alberta College of Art, 1985; and Artists of Alberta, the University of Alberta Press, 1980. In addition to his prolific artistic career, David owns The Edge Gallery and FrameCo Custom Picture Framing in Inglewood, Calgary. David maintains a studio at The Edge Gallery (CANMORE). His work is found in many private collections in Canada and abroad, as well as corporate and public collections such as Canada Council, Alberta Foundation for the Arts, University of Lethbridge, Alberta College of Art and Design and Bow Valley College.

Foxcroft’s fascination with interiors is exemplified by the strategic placement of colour, tonal variances and mixed media miscellany. References to his knowledge of art history, everyday occurrences and life in general are randomly yet precisely revealed. By happenstance, certain objects are favoured and re-emerge on different surfaces. Images are often repeated and reversed while constructions are mirrored in print form creating an additional artistic declaration.

In some works randomly found wood and metal objects, canvas scraps and construction remnants are retrieved and skillfully re-constructed into multi-layered abstractions. Other assemblages contain hundreds of precisely cut pieces of paper collaged into complex aesthetics. Obvious in all of Foxcroft’s work are a combination of strong compositional qualities and an acute grasp of spatial relationships. The corollary is a quantity of intricate images that provide a thoughtful and enduring visual experience.
