BARBARA BALLACHEY. Ridge with Distant Mountains, 1982. Edmonton Art Gallery

BARBARA BALLACHEY, b. Edmonton 1949, Ballachey, like many landscape painters of her generation, started as an abstract painter. As a result, her paintings have absorbed something of the colour spread and patterned layout of colour abstraction from the '60s and '70s. This was reinforced by participation in artists workshops at Emma Lake and elsewhere alongside abstract painters. Although she has traveled widely, Ballachey works primarily in the Alberta foothills near Calgary.
