U of L Coutts Centre for Western Canadian Heritage, Nanton, AB

The University of Lethbridge Faculty of Fine Arts and Art Gallery invite artists of all disciplines to come and create while being inspired at the U of L Coutts Centre for Western Canadian Heritage near Nanton, AB. We are hosting an ‘open house’ for artists to create while enjoying the use of the property together with other artists, friends and family.

You and yours are welcome to attend and see this beautiful place as summer progresses and the beautiful garden blooms and grows:

The Centre is open between 10 am and 5 pm – including buildings and washrooms. You can arrive earlier and stay later, but the facilities will not be available. The Coutts Centre is open for En Plein Air artists and friends to share Jim Coutt’s vision – whatever the weather. The Art Gallery will host water, coffee and tea – but you’ll need to bring your own picnic lunch.

There will be a Fall, 2015 exhibition, at the Dr. Foster James Penny Building in downtown Lethbridge, featuring artwork, sculpture and photography as created and submitted by participating artists.
