KEN CHRISTOPHER. Bow River Valley, 1980. Glenbow Museum

KEN CHRISTOPHER, b. Swift Current, Saskatchewan, 1942. Christopher has lived most of his professional life in Calgary, though he has traveled widely throughout North America. He paints watercolours frequently, often of full or half sheets. The paintings are casual and somewhat gestural, reminiscent in many ways of Reta Cowley and of artists who have been involved with the Emma Lake Artist's Workshops in Saskatchewan, but derived very much from his own practice in oils and acrylics.
