Art around the province this week!
In Red Deer:
When the City Isn’t Looking
Bill Peters

In this series of photographs, Calgarian Bill Peters spends his time looking at the built environment in an abstract, interpretive way. His images are metaphors for what he feels for the city, the land, the future. Images from Calgary, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Toronto, New York, Montreal – and maybe Red Deer – will help us see these cities through Bill’s unique vision.   

Join Bill on Friday, March 1 from 6:30 to 8:30 pm at the Red Deer Public Library Kiwanis Art Gallery (4818 - 49th Street in Red Deer). When the City Isn't Looking is up until April 25th, 2013.
