Tracy Burton’s art featured in Foothills MP John Barlow’s office gallery

Foothills Gallery

Foothills MP John Barlow shows the work of Priddis-area artist Tracy Burton, which will now be on exhibit in the Foothills Gallery in his Ottawa office.

Foothills MP John Barlow has invited artists and photographers from across his riding to submit their work to be included in the Foothills Gallery, an exhibit area in his Ottawa office which features the work of local artisans.
Tracy Burton is the new artist featured in the Foothills Gallery.
“It is an honour to have my work exhibited in John’s Ottawa office,” Burton said. “I am grateful for the opportunity to share some of the beauty found in Alberta.”
Burton’s exhibit replaces the former exhibit of Fort Macleod artist Marney Delver.
“Our Foothills Gallery has become a popular area on Parliament Hill as parliamentarians, staff and dignitaries come and see the work of our talented Foothills artists,” Barlow said. “This has become an incredible showcase of southern Alberta artisans and I am honoured to have Ms. Burton’s outstanding work on exhibit.”
Burton was inspired by her grandmother’s 1930’s era black and white photography.
Taken in a time when cameras were rare, those snapshots candidly revealed the essence of a place and a way of life that no longer exists.
The stories told within the old leather albums encouraged Burton to document western culture during her own lifetime.
Burton’s passion for the west, its beauty, lifestyle and history, is reflected in those images.
Like her grandmother, Burton is fortunate to live her life close to the land in the foothills of Alberta’s Rocky Mountains.
Burton’s fine art photography and paintings have been juried into the Calgary Stampede Western Art Show and have also been chosen for a permanent art exhibit in Fish Creek Provincial Park.

After their exhibition in the Foothills Gallery in Ottawa, all artists are given the opportunity to offer their art to be given as gifts to dignitaries, to be sold, or to be sent back to the artist.
Artisans interested in this opportunity are asked to contact Barlow’s Ottawa office at 613-995-8471 or john.barlow@parl.gc.ca.
