[ masks required ]
Norberg Hall is pleased to introduce a new body of work by senior Lethbridge-based artist, Billy McCarroll. Known for his procedural, mixed-media paintings, McCarroll continues to draw upon art historical and texted related references. To maintain perfect control of his surfaces, McCarroll tirelessly works them, leaving little physical trace of the artist hand and their underlying images. This new Cover Up Series is an extension of McCarroll’s impressive 50+ year investigation into abstraction.
Please note | The health + safety of our artists, visitors + staff is still a top priority. Out of an abundance of care + concern for the exhibiting octogenarian artists, we require the use of masks at all time during their attendance this Saturday, Apr 2 between 1-5 pm.
inquire about availability.
