This lovely sculpture can be found at a residential complex in Calgary’s Eau Claire neighbourhood.
From the beginning of June, when the figures in the sculpture called Conversation outside the Hudson’s Bay department store in downtown Calgary were fitted with face masks. Seeing how those two can’t really keep a proper physical distance, face coverings seemed to suit their needs.
A rodeo event that’s definitely set in stone! The sculpture called Eight Seconds to Glory by Shane R.L. Sutherland, along 3rd Street S.W. in downtown Calgary, depicts a bull rider hanging onto his animal. (It looks as if he’ll lose his cowboy hat, however.)
It’s always a neat challenge to capture this piece of art in a new way. “Conversation” by William McElcheran, on the Stephen Avenue Mall just outside the Hudson’s Bay department store, is seen from behind the shoulder of one of the interlocutors. The image was captured the morning after snow blanketed the city of Calgary a few days ago.
Van Gogh Observes, a sculpture by the late Canadian artist Joe Fafard, is installed outside an art gallery along 4th Street S.W. in Calgary.
From afar, the shadows in the work struck me as being a little odd, so I walked up to it for a closer look. Imagine my surprise when I figured out what was going on!
