Greetings from Jasper, Alberta’s idyllic small town nestled in the beautiful Rocky Mountains. I have lots to report as the year draws to a close.

First, we signed a lease on a space in downtown Jasper! Margo and I are very excited to be sharing a space that will serve both of our businesses. We secured the space on December 1st, and are in the process of renovating it a little bit to make it ideal for both a healing venue as well as an arts studio. I’ll announce the exact location when we officially open the doors in the New Year.

I am very excited to announce that I have embarked on a new business relationship in Edmonton – with Rachel Bouchard at The Front Gallery on 124 Street. Now that I live in Jasper, it made a lot of sense for me to be represented by a great gallery in the city, to help maintain my presence there. I just delivered three oil paintings for the gallery’s Christmas inventory. So, do pop in and check out the gallery’s stunning new space! It really is lovely. Visit their website www.thefrontgallery.com for more information.

As I write, Elevation Gallery www.elevationgallery.ca is hanging their group Christmas show, and four new oil paintings have been freshly delivered there. Visit their website or my own to see which smaller paintings are available and where they are located. I also have a few paintings available directly from the new venue in Jasper (and will be making a quick trip to Edmonton on the 23rd if you would like a last minute purchase!). Anything marked “Artist’s Gallery” on the website means it is hanging here in my possession and is available direct from the artist.

As a professional aside, I am often asked if it is cheaper to buy art direct from the artist. No, it isn’t, at least not with me. Each painting has an assigned value, and that is fixed. If I choose to sell paintings through a gallery then it is my choice to pay the gallery the commission they deserve. Galleries do a great job, and I thoroughly respect that!

Wishing you all the very best this season and may you have a wonderful year in 2018.

Ian
