Please join Nancy Townshend for an art gallery tour of a major exhibition of Maxwell Bates works of art for sale at Masters Gallery.
Maxwell Bates was Canada's premier expressionist of the mid-20th century and lived in Calgary for forty-one years. Witty, inventive, enigmatic, and empathetic, that describes Maxwell Bates. This show has a stunning and rare cocktail party oil painting, a witty Artist At Work ink and watercolour, a 1930s proposed architectural design (Bates was also an architect and built St. Mary's Cathedral) and more!
Nancy curated the Virtual Museum of Canada site, www.maxwellbates.net, on Bates and the major retrospective on Bates that traveled during 2004 - 2006, and has written a book on Bates.
Two hour parking is available on Cliff Avenue, two blocks from Masters Gallery.
