The new sculptural edition to DARK HORSE is a bronze cast of a stetson hat. Made by Calgary’s Smithbilt Hats in the historic style known as the ‘Boss of The Plains’, this iconic stetson was crushed and misshapen by the horse during the print-making act. This bronze cast now serves as a monument of the outcome, captured forever in it’s tattered state.

Mullock’s deep interest in the making process has been recently manifested in a number of performative works; revealing the destructive action of the given process, acting as a snap-shot in time and outcome serving as a record of the art-making event
We have designed a new Online Viewing Room to accompany this exceptional exhibition. For the winter Norberg Hall will remain open By Appointment Only. Using this platform and approach, we can continue with our planned exhibition schedule while ensuring that the health and safety of our artists, collectors, clients and staff is a top priority.
With that in mind we have temporarily changed our hours. Given the recent spike in COVID-19 cases in Alberta, JHG is erring on the side of caution for all and is currently open Tuesday – Saturday, By Appointment Only. We are optimistic about the future and keen to re-open our doors to the public. However we are also cautious and want to ensure the safety and comfort of our clients and staff is a top priority. We invite you to book your visit today and look forward to seeing you soon.
