Steven Cottingham is putting on another Calgary Biennial this year and it’s a little bit different than 2012′s celebrated “Hearts Of The New West” event. According to the Calgary Biennial site, this year,
“… we are no longer interested in “celebrating” the city and its underground art scene. We want something more. We don’t want to shy away from criticism. Together, we will appropriate commercial venues and sites of advertisement to compete with the graphic capitalist landscape.”
This event will take place in numerous venues around the Calgary between December 2014 to January 2015. If you’re interested in being part of the biennial, you can apply before May 1st.

PAINTING PORTRAITS FROM PHOTOS
A 5 day oil painting workshop with Martinho Correia
April 8 – 12, 2014
Workshop held at University of Alberta, Education Centre South
From rounded mirrors to the camera-obscura to digital images, artists have always taken advantage of technology to assist them in making their art. In this unique workshop, students will be guided through the steps Mr. Correia follows when using photographs to paint a portrait. The course will begin with students copying a portrait by an 18th century master in order to apply what they have learned to working from photos. The practice of using photographs as source materials is described and all stages of the painting process will be demonstrated
Early Deadline March 21, 2014
