OUR CANADA PROJECT

We’re feeling ambitious!  Hillhouse Studio Design (that’s me) and Kathryn Gorectke Art (my very dear friend) are teaming together to celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday this year by painting 150 original paintings of OUR CANADA! 

 

We want to show you what we can do with a little, okay a lot, of paint and canvas, but we need your help.  As we can’t be everywhere across the country, we thought we could do this together, a team effort to showcase the beauty of our country's landscapes!  Our goal is to create 75 paintings each, in our own unique style, totaling 150.  We would love if you’d send us your photos, Canada!  We need 75 unique photos representing all of the provinces and territories.  If we choose your photo, we will enter your name into a draw to win a painting from the project (of your choice).  We’ll draw more than one! 

Hashtag your photos #ourcanadaprojecthsd or send them directly to hillhousesd@gmail.com (please remember to tell us where the photos are from; no copyrighted images please, unless you hold copyright and give us written permission to paint your photo).  

Let’s see how much of Canada we can capture!  #spreadtheword #ourcanadaprojecthsd

Curious as to what we will do with 150 landscape paintings of OUR CANADA?  

We'll be showing the whole project at the Three Sisters Gallery in Canmore, Alberta from September 5 - October 31.

Hop on over here for more information.

And of course we'd like to give a few paintings back to say thank you for sending your incredible photos and letting us in on the landscapes and beauty of where you live or where you've travelled (we'll enter names into a draw of all those whose photos have been selected) . 

Let's preserve this beautiful country we call home!  

You can see more of Kathryn's work here.
