Gallery@501 presents “Lake, Land and Sky” inspired by Strathcona County’s Cooking Lake

The Gallery@501 is pleased to present “Lake, Land and Sky” by local artist Annette Sicotte from November 6 to December 20.

In “Lake, Land and Sky” Annette Sicotte paints landscapes depicting Cooking Lake, a pastoral setting in the heart of the County. 

Sicotte’s artwork examines the details of the land and the interrelationship of weather, sky and light. Her paintings utilize subtle variations in light and shadow to help develop character in her work. This technique is known to painters as chiaroscuro and originates in the Romantic era of early 9 century Europe.

The public opening reception for “Lake, Land and Sky” is on Friday, November 6 at 7 p.m. at Gallery@501 (501 Festival Avenue, Sherwood Park). Artist Annette Sicotte will be in attendance. Attendees will enjoy a wonderful evening of conversation and have the opportunity to meet the artist.
