Whistler has some incredible art galleries to discover, with each one showcasing incredible artistic talent and an openness that invites you in to appreciate it. From iconic Canadian wildlife and
landscapes, to internationally renowned contemporary works, to graphically
enhanced photographic pieces, the full spectrum is yours to explore.
For 25 years, the Adele Campbell Fine Art Gallery has focused on
representing Canada’s finest established and emerging artists, both classic
and contemporary. When you visit them inside the Westin Resort & Spa,
give yourself time to explore the eclectic works that hang from the walls.
“The colour and energy that ooze off each canvas mirror the vastness
and power of the natural surroundings that make Whistler and Canada
so unique,” explains Liz Harris, owner and director of the gallery.
“Representing these artists is an honour and privilege we are proud to
share with those visiting our gallery.”
Cameron Bird has always wanted to capture the wild vivacity of British
Columbia in a painting, and since the age of 17, he’s done just that. Given his
love of landscape, it’s no wonder that he’s inspired by The Group of Seven,
Tom Thompson, and wildlife artist Carl Rungius. Under the mentorship of
Canadian artist K.C. Smith, Bird learned how to appreciate and simplify
each brush stroke, and this shows in his paintings.
