Rhythm and Change: The Bow in Contemporary Art

Rhythm and Change is a multimedia exhibit of contemporary artworks including painting, drawing, photographs and prints. It forms one segment of Our River: Journey of the Bow, a blockbuster exhibition that celebrates Alberta’s 2005 Centennial and examines Alberta's Bow River from diverse perspectives: geological, cultural, historical and artistic.

The 623-kilometre Bow River runs from Banff National Park in the Rockies to the province of Saskatchewan in the east. From the city of Banff, well known for its arts colony, artists since the 1930s have been inspired to include the Bow River in their work. The current exhibition provides an opportunity to learn more about the ways artists have approached the river and what they have found memorable and “paintable.”

Popular artists whose work is featured in the show include Ted Godwin, EJ Hughes, A.Y. Jackson, Dorothy Knowles, Marion and Jim Nicholl, George and Kathleen Pepper, Mario Reis, Walter Phillips and Craig Richards.
