DIFFERENT STROKES ART GALLERY IS PROUD TO PRESENT THE WORKS OF ARTIST ELSIE ARCHER AND AUTHOR MAXINE SPENCE

Open House, 5:00 – 8:00.  Stop in, have a refreshment and enjoy.

Elsie’s Artist Statement

When asked why she paints, Elsie will say “God put the desire within me, it is just part and parcel of who I am”. Her painting continues to show progress. Teaching art has further encouraged her to experiment. Her painting shows understanding, truthfulness, gentleness, and respect. It is somewhat fanciful, not quite realistic, and a bit whimsical. She regards her successes and failures as building blocks. Her view of life is very apparent in her paintings.

Statement from Maxine Spence’s book “Leaf”

“This time, when the winter winds began to blow, he watched the leaves begin their last dance and knew that holding on couldn’t make anything last forever.”

What’s Different about Different Strokes?

Different Strokes Art Gallery is committed to broadening the confines of what individuals think of when they hear the term "Gallery". We believe that art is not necessarily meant to be quiet and passive - a gallery should have the same passion for its exhibited artworks that the artists have for their own work. Different Strokes exhibits all forms of art by artists and artisans, mainly from Alberta, focusing on the artist and not just the art work. We welcome all art lovers to come in, be our guest, and appreciate the many different shapes, forms and sizes that art can take.
