Only had a very short time to enjoy the beauty of Banff in the Alberta Rockies. Tried to see as much as possible in during my limited stay after grabbing a quick sandwich with an old friend from my rafting days. Such a stunning place that each visit makes me only want to return again soon.
I was out in Calgary covering the governments funding announcement on research on injury prevention in children and youth. The Honourable Rona Ambrose, Minister of Health, Mr. Jamie Macoun, former Calgary Flames player, Mr. Brian Burke, and Dr. Robert Thirsk were some of the speakers at the event at the Olympic Training facility in Calgary. A few frames from the event.
Attended my friends first show for his painting this evening at a small gallery and wine bar in Ottawa’s Byward Market. Geoff Gibson is a talented Ottawa artist who paints on a variety of surfaces to produce some interesting and funky creations. The show has 40 pieces and can be viewed from October 23rd to December 11th, 2013 at Must Kitchen and Wine Bar. You can check out more of Geoff’s work online at http://ffoeg.tumblr.com/ or on Twitter . I was happy to purchase one of Geoff’s creations for display in our home. Congratulations Geoff on your first of show of what I am sure will be many more to come.
