Darcy Logan examines a piece from Cultivating Creativity at Casa. photo by Richard Amery“‘Cultivating Creativity‘ is a group exhibition on the theme of gardening,” said curator Darcy Logan, noting 17 artists submitted a variety of works in a variety of mediums including clay, textile and, painting and drawing. They are in the back half of the main gallery as well as in the main foyer.

“There is also an installation of photographs suspended from the ceiling,” Logan continued.

 The other major main floor exhibition is Beany Dootjes’s ‘Gardens III’ in the front half of the main gallery.

“She’s a sustainable gardener. She grows her own produce, fruits and vegetables and even grapes and berries and her art is inspired by that,” Logan said.

“She’s experimenting with the idea of heritage seeds, vegetables and climate. It’s very contemplative,” he said.
 Upstairs, Casa’s clay co-ordinator Aaron Hagan has a new exhibition of original work called “Curves.”
“It’s a suite of abstract paintings,” Logan said.


And  Group of Several, a group of several local artists have an exhibition of watercolours  inspired  by Southern Alberta called a Glimpse of the Sunny South.

“They’re a group of artists who meet every month to  critique each other’s works and develop procedures. So We’re really excited  to be featuring them at Casa,” Logan said.
 They exhibitions are at Casa until April 14.
