Three Sisters Gallery
Located on the second floor of Elevation Place, the Three Sisters Gallery is a public gallery established in 2013 by the Town of Canmore Public Art Committee. The Three Sisters Gallery is located in an open, public space, used by a large cross section of residents and visitors who might not normally go into gallery spaces. The gallery engages the community by presenting a diverse mix of visual art and artists from Canmore and beyond. The goals of the gallery is to offer artists the opportunity to exhibit in a public space and to engage the community by exhibiting new artists, artworks and ideas.

About this Show:
My ambition with every work is to create a space where people can meet the divine. Celtic tradition called these opportunities "thin places." According to the Celts heaven and earth are only three feet apart usually. Thinness meant the division between the divine and the mundane becomes translucent, transparent even. Thin places provide a space where the divine can touch us and we can touch the divine.
Within my paintings sacred symbols abound. The sacred is what binds our world and undergirds all that I do. The glow beneath the image represents the Cosmic Christ who created everything and invites us to join him/her in the dance of co-creation. The circles flow in and out, some visible and some invisible, just as the Holy Spirit flows, ever present, not always recognized.
And so, everything is sacred. In its capacity to teach us, sin is sacred too. My greatest, most profound lessons in life came out of the confusion and pain of mistakes and their consequences. God has used everything for good. Great suffering yields great transformation if we allow it. Transformation produces the possibility of union. Becoming one with our Creator and all his/her creation is the whole point. Thin places.
About this Show:
Three Friends, three artists, three abstract art lovers. Barb Fyvie, Dana Roman and Pascale Ouellet team up in creating this three-person exhibition titled Thoughts in Progress. Sharing stories of successes and struggles, they support each other in their ever-shifting individual artistic quests. Using their own visual language, their work is as much about process as it is about the final product.
This exhibition supports their desire to disseminate abstract art to a wider audience.
