Jul 9 – Aug 28 2021
Norberg Hall is pleased to introduce a new body of work by senior Calgary artist Mark Dicey. Over the past 38 years, Calgary artist Mark Dicey has brought both dedication and energy to a wide range of his creative interests. Although Dicey is recognized for his momentous colourful canvases, this latest body of work explores his drawing and paperwork.

Over the years friends and colleagues have gifted Dicey with books and interesting paper knowing his great passion for drawing, collage and experimentation. Most recently Dicey was given blueprints from the 30’s that were inserts from Popular Mechanics Magazine. Dicey took to these fold-outs without colour, but focused on shape, line and the structural relationships therein. Dicey’s spontaneous technique and process contradicts the precise drawings of the substrate. By juxtaposing his imagery and the underlying plans, he creates a playful tension and relational conversation between the two.
Calgary painter Mark Dicey was born in 1959 and graduated from the Alberta College of Art in 1983. Since that time he has taught at the Alberta College of Art & Design (Alberta University of Art) and been a pinnacle member of the Calgary art community for over 30 years.
His work can be found in collections such as the Alberta Foundation for the Arts, the City of Calgary, Canadian Foreign Affairs (Belgium), Scotia Bank of Canada, Royal Bank of Canada, the Glencoe Club (Calgary), the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise and more.

mask mandate | we’re safely open
As we move into Phase 3 and the provincial public health restrictions continue to be lifted, we want to assure our clients that their safety is still of utmost importance to us. In regards to the municipal mask mandate lifted on July 5, we want our clients to have the peace of mind that they are still entering a safe + healthy environment. Our gallery + frame shop staff will continue to wear masks + we kindly ask all visitors to wear theirs until July 31. We will continue to provide sanitizer, accommodate those who are still social distancing + allow private viewings. We no longer have a gallery capacity limit + are open regular hours for visits. Our online viewing rooms [OVR] will be ongoing for those not yet comfortable with IRL gallery experiences + collectors from afar.
Going forward at NH Fine Frames, we will continue framing consultations on an appointment-only basis. We’ve found this to be beneficial to everyone; allowing more time + attention for each individual client + their unique framing needs. One-hour framing appointments may be booked between Tues – Sat, 11am – 4pm.
