"Inuit Art for the Collector" Show, Plus New paintings by Dan Varnals and J. Thomas Hinton


INUIT ART FOR THE COLLECTOR from May to September 2017
Thomas Webster and his brother John have been buying, collecting and selling Inuit Art for 50 years. They have seen many sculptural styles and dealt with many artists through the years. Webster Galleries Inc. has spent the last year collecting all these wonderful sculptures, many of them from nationaly acclaimed artists. Today, as opposed to 30 years ago these artists are being purchased by collectors from all over the world and appreciated for what they truly are, a unique canadian art form. This exhibition will be open from May to September 2017 at our main gallery, 812, 11th Avenue SW, Calgary, Alberta.

New Sculpture by Mark Totan, Plus paintings by Sheila Adams, Larry Rich, Real Fournier, Anita Skinner, and Jonathon Earl Bowser


http://www.webstergalleries.com/title.php?page=6&data=search_array&ititlenum=19835
 
Mark Totan was born November 11th, 1951 and originally from the small, Eastern Arctic community of Igloolik, Nunavut. Mark is a self taught artist who has been carving in a variety of stone and antler mediums since 1990. Each carving is original and depicts some feature of the lifestyle or history of his people.

Totan begins the carving process by roughing out a block of stone with a hammer, chisel and hand axe; he then uses files, rasps and sandpaper for finishing. The final touch consists of heating and rubbing the carving with wax or oil to accent the natural grain of the stone. His carvings are displayed and sold in various galleries throughout Canada and the American mid-west. In addition, his works form a part of numerous private and corporate collections throughout the world.

Regina was born in a small village in East Germany, immigrating to Canada at age seven with her mother and grandmother.  Her new life in Canada began in a Saskatchewan farming community.  She explored her rural surroundings with a keen curiosity and wonder.  Gradually, she explored the diversity of rugged landscapes of the western Canadian provinces.
