Join us at the IMA Gallery at 7pm for and Artist Talk with Peter Corbett - Peter will be starting his week -long Guided Residency with a few painters from out of town. Come on down and see how he makes wonderful works like this piece from Yoho National Park.
Peter Corbett is considered by many to be one of western Canada’s leading plein air oil painters. Peter creates small field paintings out of doors then uses these as reference material for much larger pieces created in the studio. Working from nature and the ever-changing light brings a loose spontaneity to his work. Peter’s studio practice also includes abstract and figurative motifs using a variety of different mediums. Peter’s work has been shown extensively in both public and commercial galleries, been the recipient of numerous awards and grants and has been a mentored and teacher in various capacities.
Peter is also a professional biologist, former outdoor adventure guide, and loves to share his enthusiasm for nature while painting out of doors.
