My last post ended when we got back from our BC to BAJA and back. Once we got home it was time to catch up with friends, family and computer work! Come May we were on the road again and pretty much for the next few months we came home did laundry and left again for all sorts of wonderful adventures.
BANFF ALBERTA was our destination in May for Arnt's residency with his gallery www.mountaingalleries.com On the way we stopped in Jasper to meet up with Wendy who owns the four galleries and check out the Jasper Gallery. The drive from Jasper to Banff is unbelievable! The vistas of mountains incredible. Once at Banff Arnt works for a week in the art room next to the gallery and he chose to plane wood, work on hand cut dovetails and make maquettes from some of his drawings while encouraging conversations with the hotel visitors. The rest of the time we get to sample the wonderful restaurants, pools in the hotel and walk or bike around the town and area. I use that time to help Arnt a bit every day in the art room by talking to people and the rest of the time I set up somewhere in the hotel for a bit of art making. This residency is graciously sponsored by his gallery and the hotel. We cannot thank them enough.
