A new art exhibit is available for public viewing at the Western GM Art Gallery in the Badlands Community Facility.

The paintings are inspired by Alberta geography.

"It is a series that I have done over the last several years and it is inspired by rocky mountain hiking destinations and some prairie locations," explained artist Liz Sullivan. "I did a Banff Centre Art Residency in 2014 so I really focused on this series at that point."

Sullivan believes that this is a fitting exhibit to have on before the Canada 150 celebrations, as lanscape is a large part of Canadian identity.

"They are all bold and colourful, the painting technic is kind of wild," said Sullivan. "I am very expressive and I really like to experiment with the way I use paint so I spray, splatter, carve, and layer with acrylic paint."

She starts off with smaller versions of her paintings that she is able to take back to her studio.

"I usually have a sketchbook, a pencil, sometimes I bring water colours and of course a camera," added Sullivan. "I do quick sketches and I make some notes on colour and the weather conditions."

'High Elevation, Elation, Ethereal' will be on display for the entire month of June.

Sullivan is an avid hiker and has been hard at work on this project for 6 years.
