We’re 1 year old! We’ve had an amazing first year at our Wildlife Art Gallery in the Crowsnest Pass!

We’ve met hundreds of fellow wildlife lovers from around the world and shared our art and the stories behind it with more people than we ever could have imagined. It’s been such a privilege to carefully package framed prints, flat prints, archival metal and acrylic prints, canvases and more to bring warmth and cheer to homes from British Columbia to Michigan, from Texas to Atlantic Canada, and a whole lot of Alberta too! We’ve chatted with fellow artists, discussed conservation issues with biologists and photographers, listened to stories of wildlife sightings from local folks and tourists alike. We’ve added new releases to our lineup, new artisans to the gallery, and even opened a second area filled with solid deals on framed open edition prints. It’s been a GREAT year! Read more
