Theresa Eisenbarth: Walking the Flats
A sentimental journey, expertly expressed through soft brush strokes of vibrant colours creates a new body of work by local artist Theresa Eisenbarth. These vivid paintings are inspired by Eisenbarth’s memories of walking around the neighbourhood of her childhood home on Dominion Street. Familiar Medicine Hat landmarks such as Mackenzie Drug Store, Lion’s Park gates, and the Korner Konvenience visually narrate a sense of place and nostalgic connection to “home”.Theresa studied Visual Communications at Medicine Hat College and received a B.F.A. Fine Arts from the University of Calgary. After taking a break to focus on family life, she established her practice in 2012. Now, as a full time artist, she spends 40 hours a week in her studio and produces 50-60 pieces each year.
