In this solo exhibition, Allyson Glenn (associate professor, Department of Art & Art History) shows work from two series inspired by artist residencies, one in Greece and another in Spain. Her studio at the Vorres Museum outside of Athens was surrounded by architectural gardens set against a backdrop of exotic flora. Glenn also worked in the arid national park of Sierra Maria-Los Velez in Spain, where agriculture once flourished. The hills are now pitted with abandoned almond trees, sheep farms and homes, a vista that inspired Glenn to undertake a series of nine large scale paintings.
Glenn is the recipient of numerous awards and grants, and her work is part of private and public collections, including the University of Calgary and the Alberta Foundation for the Arts. She has exhibited extensively for nearly two decades across Canada and internationally in the United States, Germany, Great Britain, Greece, China, Czech Republic, India and Switzerland.
