As part of Canada’s 150th in 2017, we challenged the Visual Arts Members of the Red Deer Arts Council to bring their creative talents to bear as we ‘journey’ together into this imaginative exhibit. The Visual Arts Committee of the Red Deer Arts Council invited our visual arts members to get wickedly creative and participate in this show to share their stories of travel, their journeys, real or imagined, through their fine art and craft.

Canada’s vast geography from land to sea inspires great artists from all over the globe. This is our members opportunity to show you their vision and “Think Canada”!

Guiding perspective for the exhibit:

Where are you going? Where have you gone? When you travel what is the focus: the journey itself or the destination? How do you travel? What is your mode of transportation: sentimental, practical, spiritual or other? Why do certain places inspire you more than others? Is your inspiration based on historical retrospectives or a dream of the future? Who do you see going with you as you journey or who do you visit?
