Celebrating 50 years of art with a Kiss: "A Life Well-Travelled" at Avens Gallery

February 08, 2018 06:00 am by Jordan Small Feature article by: Rocky Mountain Outlook Newspaper 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.”
