Aliana Au’s landscapes are measured prayers. Her use of oil stick and watercolour in her latest exhibit Here & Now are an homage to the few places left untouched by man.   

I am seeking a voice from my childhood.  Growing up in Canton (Guangzhou) China where I lived surrounded by unspoilt expanses of land. There was a true wildness in the places where I grew up.

A Calgary organization called Seniors Secret Service has been providing gifts to isolated seniors at Christmas and on their birthday for the past 28 years. Unfortunately many of their Corporate and individual sponsors are choosing to sponsor fewer seniors this year, a move some have attributed to generous financial contributions during the flood crisis.  They are seeking help to ensure they meet the needs of their community. 

If you wish to help the Christmas Cheer program, you may do so by visiting Canada Helps 
or by mail to Seniors Secret Service, Suite #1, 6025 12 ST SE Calgary AB T2K 2K1
