In the heart of cowboy country, this art-lovers oasis will stop you in your tracks and bring you back time and time again. Nestled in the foothills, with Rocky Mountain views to the west and prairie to the east, lies a gem in the village of Longview, Alberta. Debra has curated this gallery space to reflect her values and those of the local artists that she represents: Creativity, Community, Conservation
The gallery space showcases Debra Garside’s fine art photography, a permanent collection of Sable Island Wild Horse imagery as well as her bronze sculptures. Many of Debra’s pieces are ‘conservation editions’ from which donations are routed back to organizations in need of funding.
Several guest artists are also featured at the gallery including a permanent exhibit by photographer Robert Pierce Butler, paintings by Jan Walker-Roenisch and bronze art by world-renowned sculptor Richard Roenisch. Temporary exhibits by other local artists change throughout the year.
Events at the gallery include educational talks featuring guest speakers on such topics as wildlife conservation, ecology and environmental topics, wild horse awareness, and more. Photography workshops for all levels and one specifically for seniors are held regularly.
Will be workshops in the spirit of Truth and Reconciliation where Indigenous artists may host events including language learning, beading, and drum-making along with an exchange of cultural learning.
At the Garside Art Gallery we acknowledge that we are on Treaty 7 territory, the traditional territories of the Blackfoot Nations, including Siksika (Sick-sick-ah), Piikani (Pee-can-ee), and Kainai (Kigh-a-nigh), the Tsuut’ina (Soot- ina), Nation and Stoney Nakoda First Nations. We acknowledge all the many First Nations, Métis, and Inuit whose footsteps have marked these lands for centuries.
