    Gallery@501 warmly invites you to attend our upcoming exhibition ‘Reflections’ by Richard Borowski.

    Unveiling Reception: Nov 4 @ 7pm.
    Open: Nov 4 – Dec 18, 2016
    501 Festival Ave, Sherwood Park

    Borowski’s prints and paintings of reflections found on building windows create a disjointed reality that is distorted and fragmented. Reflections are in a constant flux of distortion, inherent in their appearance; causing us to question our self-reflections and their accuracy or distortion.

    Richard Borowski is a local artist, born in Edmonton in 1951 and grew up in Mundare, Alberta. Richard completed a B.Ed. degree at the University of Alberta in 1974 and spent thirty two years as an art educator with students from grades seven to twelve.

    Borowski’s work is in both private and public collections, such as Strathcona County, Energy Resources Conservation Board and City of Edmonton - Parks and Recreation.

    Ashton's Folly Project

    In 18th century England the gentry might create on their own country estates a whimsical structure of mystery, known as a "Folly", to serve as a conversation piece. The spirit of that era is being transmitted to Monument Park in 2015 by Ann and John Ashton.

    It is proposed that the Folly be adorned by four outdoor murals, each 43 inches wide by 48 inches high. One panel has been allocated to an artist member of the Ashton family. Each of the three artists selected by a jury process will receive a fee of $750.00

    Strathconians are requested to submit artist's resumes and experience on or before April 30, 2015. 

    Download the Call for Entry for more information.
