DIDSBURY ART SHOW & SALE - APRIL 8 & 9, 2017
Celebrating Canada's Sesquicentennial of Art and Music.The Mountain View Arts Society was pleased to host the 6th Annual Art Show & Sale at the Didsbury Art, Travel & Trade Expo in Didsbury. Hosted by the Chamber of Commerce, this is the largest trade show between Airdrie and Red Deer in Central Alberta. Over 120 exhibitors on three ice surfaces and the community hall with over 4,000 people attending each year. Artists can rest assured many people saw their work!

The public was in for a very special treat, as each artist provided a piece that celebrated Canada's 150th birthday!

Our Featured Artist this year was Wildlife Photographer, Ken Hoehn. Ken's images of nature simply present viewers with a powerful, inspirational interpretation. His unique collection is the result of a deep, persevering pursuit of the rarest moments in the wilderness, and superb mastery of the camera in those moments. See those moments! Share the passion! Live the art!

This was another fabulous show featuring so many wonderful local Canadian artists!

ARTISTS' WINDOW
We offer a comfortable space for an "Artist's Window". This popular area sheds light on the artistic process, how artists make art. Each artist has an opportunity to schedule a time when the public can watch them practice their craft, opening a window into the lives of artists as they go about their work.
