Touch of New York in Jasper Gallery

Mountain Galleries' new space features LED skylights

Wendy Wacko’s new 2700 square foot Mountain Gallery at The Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge could be mistaken for an avant-garde New York art gallery. “Now we can display works by our leading western Canadian artists as they are meant to be viewed,” says Wendy. Green features of the space include energy efficient LED ‘skylights’ that mimic natural light so precisely that they dim and warm in colour at dusk creating an indoor alpen-glow effect. Relax at the Learning Centre library (where art DVDs are screened), or paint at the Watercolour Station (lessons available). Call ahead to confirm Sat evening wine tastings that feature a local jazz guitarist.—JN
