Upcoming Exhibition

Attila Richard Lukacs

In Helen’s Garden 

May 27 – July 1, 2023

Although Attila Richard Lukacs vaulted onto the international stage in the 1980’s with epic, grand paintings, he has created masterful small-scale works throughout his career, often with family and friends in mind. This exhibition is a rare event. During the summer of 2021 he came to Calgary to help his family care for his mother, Helen, as her dementia progressed. He renewed her beloved garden with brightly blooming flowers she might see throughout the season from her window. There, he set up an outdoor studio space and painted this suite of eight extraordinary, intimate diamonds - musings on life, spirit, and transcendence - in the
company of sparrows, nuthatches and chickadees. - Katherine Ylitalo, March 5, 2023

Automatic Yes

May 27 – July 1, 2023

"I'm often asked what kind of painter I am.  Figurative, abstract, small, large, digital, botanical, surrealist, mural... I just say yes to all of it.  When I began working on this show, I felt the now familiar hunger for a new experience of painting, for the excitement and surprise of a fresh direction. I smiled when the first painting I finished said "Automatic Yes" in large letters. So, I took it from there, playfully, not recklessly, intentionally being open to whatever kind of painter I might be. I followed the chain of ideas, reacting with an automatic yes at every turn."
