Tix Artists at Art Walk on Whyte

Posted on: June 11 2021

The Art Walk on Whyte is back for 2021! They have moved indoors to the former Army & Navy building in Old Strathcona, where every weekend from June 11th to August 1st you can visit booths of local Edmonton and area visual artists. When you visit, make sure you stop by and take a look at some of the participating Tix on the Square artists who are featured below.

 

Karen Bishop 
June 11-13 and July 9-11
Karen Bishop's work is not intended to be a faithful reproduction of the landscape before her. Instead, she paints by feel. The paintings that evoke the most emotions are those completed on location where she is able to allow her surroundings and the weather to dictate how the painting will turn out, trying not to worry about the ending, rather letting the painting unfold and track its own course across the paper.

Crystal Driedger 
June 11-13 and July 9-11
Crystal Driedger's playful and charming original acrylic and oil paintings feature vibrant colours, enchanting textures and gentle, whimsical shapes. Often her pieces are hand-carved into soft basswood or are painted with thick, buttery strokes of rich oil paint. Some are intricate depictions of nature - botanical art and scientific illustration work. Many of Crystal’s pieces are inspired by memories and imaginings from a childhood spent in the forests and fields of her family farm. Her work is varied and vast from murals to tiny realism in coloured pencil, from enamel pins to large scale paintings of cows - her passion projects ebb and flow with her interests.
