Thinking Big Winnipeg artist Wanda Koop plucks her images from the prairie landscape and creates billboard-sized paintings that speak volumes.

Hughes in Perspective Alternately labelled a regionalist, a realist or a primitive painter, E.J. Hughes has personalized the British Columbia coastal landscape. By Scott Watson Jack Bush Critics, friends and colleagues pay tribute to the remarkable life and art of an internationally acclaimed painter. Going Through the Notions It was 1984.

By Jay Scott Postmodernism The shape of things to come or a remembrance of things past? Architects are thrashing out the meaning of postmodernism.
