Ed Drahanchuk , 1938 – Ceramic, 8 x 4 inches “Drahanchuk was oriented to an honest expression of the natural world. He used glazes as ‘accents to good design only where function demands.” Whether making a studio piece or a commissioned mural, Drahanchuk imbued his work with a distinctive surface energy and muscularlity, hallmarks that […]

Serigraph on Paper, 12 x 9 inches 178/220

“George Weber’s prints document the transformation of Alberta from the depression era to the oil boom, and reveal the human impact on the prairies. As a draughtsman, he was trained in wallpaper design and display.

In the late 1920s, sensing the dangerous political climate developing in Germany, he immigrated to Canada. After first working as a wallpaper designer in Toronto, he studied composition, colour and commercial silkscreen techniques at the Ontario College of Art. He then settled in Edmonton and attended night classes at the University of Alberta and the Banff School of Fine Arts, studying life drawing and watercolour techniques under Jack Taylor and Janet Middleton.

Weber shared his knowledge of serigraphy, which was then still relatively new in the West. In 1948, he lectured at the University of Alberta on the silkscreen process and in 1950 and 1951, he led workshops at the Edmonton Art Gallery. Many well-known artists took classes from him during the 1950s through the University of Alberta. Weber also imported handmade Japanese and European fine art papers for the benefit of local printmakers.

His silkscreen print Inkaneep Reserve, Osoyoos, B.C. (1957) was the first serigraph selected as an honorary membership print for the Society of Canadian Painter-Etchers and Engravers. Weber produced watercolours and preliminary sketches of the diverse ranchland, parks, forests and prairies of Alberta, as well as the interior and coastal areas of British Columbia. Mameo Beach, Pigeon Lake, Alberta (1950) displays the rich earthy colours and wide range of tonal values of those landscapes.

George Weber was a founding member and president of the Edmonton branch of the Society of Canadian Painter-Etchers and Engravers (CPE) and he was also a member of the Society of Canadian Painters in Water Colour, the Canadian Graphic Society, the Edmonton Art Club, the Federation of Canadian Artists (FCA) and the Northwest Printmakers (Seattle). In 1976, Weber received the Edmonton Historical Board’s Recognition Award for his series of sketches and watercolours of historic buildings and sites in the city. ” from https://www.gallery.ca/en/see/collections/artist.php?iartistid=27752

Francine Gravel
Engraving,  (9/28) 4 x 2.5 Inches

“Francine Gravel was born and raised in Montreal, Quebec where she attended the Ecole des Beaux-Arts, studying under Albert Dumouchel. She later pursued post-graduate studies in Belgium at the Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp and at the University of Calgary (Alberta).

She was presented in her premiere exhibit of etchings and engravings in 1967 – an exhibit that launched a career that has continued to grow ever since. In 1980, after a long quest, she discovered the personal style that identifies her as a painter, and she has never looked back.

She now enjoys an international reputation and has collectors throughout the world. She exhibits in numerous galleries throughout Canada where she is frequently featured in one-woman shows. ”
