An art exhibit a half-century in the making has the artist of the hour wondering, “Wow, where did the time go?”
Canmore’s Avens Gallery hosts Celebrating 50 Years – Andrew Kiss: A Life Well Travelled, beginning Friday (Feb. 9) at 5 p.m. and running until Feb. 16.
A master of oil and canvas projects, the Calgary-based artist specializes in documenting outdoor landscapes such as the mountainous Kananaskis Country wild.
“Really, some of it is luck and a lot of it is hard work,” Kiss said, who’s career has spanned five decades.
“It’s been very, very amazing to have a career in the arts this long. The arts have taken me to a lot of different places and it’s been quite a great way to see the world.”
