Different Strokes Art Gallery is proud to present Richard Dixon.

Join us from 4:00pm – 8:00pm

Richard Dixon is a professional fine artist of 32 years experience having exhibited globally for the past 25 years.  He has owned galleries and art publishing enterprises operating on a worldwide scale, currently using these skills to manage art projects related to exhibitions of his own art and that of other talented artists.

Since the fall of 2005, he has been concentrated upon developing as a plein air artist of landscapes, having taken painting expeditions to Northern California, the Superstition Mountains of Arizona, and along the Oregon coast in an effort to experience as many varying forms of light and landscape as possible.

The primary focus of his art is the presentation of images that reflect the history, cultures, landscape and mythology of Western Canada and the Western Arctic regions.  To this end he has for the last 20 years created paintings that are historical dramas of life in Western Canada during the eras of the fur trade and native occupation of the land, many of which hang in major corporate, government, museum and private collections worldwide.  Collection list is available upon request.

His series “The Canadian Spirit Series” were the official gift presentations at the 1988 Calgary Winter Olympics.

Different Strokes Art Gallery is proud to present Clint Jackson.

Join us from 10:00am – 2:00pm

Clint was born and raised in the Olds area and became interested in painting at an early age.  He is a self-taught artist who has been able to capture memories in each of his pieces.  His Clint Jackson "Eyes on You"canvas varies from car doors, to barn wood, to windows and windshields.  Always unique, always reminiscent of days gone by and always memorable.  Clint’s work must be seen to be believed.

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.
