ESPLANADE ART GALLERY
Monday, June 15 2020
"In this exhibition, I capture the places I remember as a child growing up in the historic River Flats neighbourhood in Medicine Hat. Each wall designates a specific walk I would take while growing up in this industrial area of Medicine Hat….and they all start from Dominion Street, my first childhood home. From there I would walk to the catholic elementary school, to Lions Park, to the shopping area on North Railway Street and to the factories like Medalta, where many of the blue-collar families from the surrounding streets and avenues worked."
VISUAL STORY TELLER
"Visiting the local grocery or convenience store was either a chore (when you had a hand-written list from your mom) or a reward (when you had a nickel in your pocket for a “blue whale” candy)". Medicine Hat. More importantly, the exhibit reinforces a “living neighbourhood” and the importance of being connected to your surroundings
Theresa is an artist from Medicine Hat, Alberta.
Theresa’s studio represents the vibrancy and energy she is inspired to bring to all of her work, using the colour red as a feature for her depictions of urban landscapes from various periods in Southern Alberta’s history.
When visitors enter Theresa’s studio they’ll see streets, buildings and objects re-energized and re-imagined on canvas. Aspiring artists can also sign up for art classes — to release creative genius, or just for fun.
This website features some of Theresa Eisenbarth’s favourite work. Viewers may just want to browse, or may be eager to buy. Either way, Theresa hopes you enjoy your journey.
