Local art club members weigh their creative options for Scale exhibition

You’ll see Red Deer Art Club members zooming in and zooming out at their upcoming exhibition – even when nobody’s moving. The contributing artists took on the theme of “Scale” for the juried show, with many creating images that zoom in to magnify the tiny or pull back to view the landscape from a grander scale. Still others blended the two, creating unique perspectives with brain-teasing results.

Of course, large versus small isn’t the only concept of scale. Scales measure anything from a sack of sugar to tonal values, giving the artists the opportunity to work in two or three interpretations in a single piece. See how many examples of scale you can find in each work.

Red Deer Arts Council is pleased to present Scale: Works by Members of the Red Deer Art Club held in the Viewpoint Gallery at the Cultural Services Building (5205 48 Avenue) in partnership with the Red Deer Arts Council’s Kiwanis Gallery.
