Tom Gale: Silent Land

The Front Gallery, Edmonton, AB - Nov 23-Dec 16

by Robin Laurence

In his statement, Tom Gale writes, “I speak of the land and the land speaks of me.” This exhibition, which celebrates the Edmonton artist’s 70th birthday, revisits his best known subject, the Canadian landscape. In both subject and style, Gale seems like the creative heir to the Group of Seven, and like them he communicates a strong identification with the natural world. At the same time, his work evokes “a personal journey towards self-awareness.”
