In the company of the artist
When he’s not frequenting the pantheon of Canadian painting, Chris Cran – the humble picture-making polymath from Calgary – is always meticulously playing in his studio. TrépanierBaer is pleased to present Warmest regards, Chris Cran, an exhibition of new works.

Warmest regards, Chris Cran, is a prairie companion to the artist’s major solo show Chris Cran, Sincerely Yours, on view now at the National Gallery of Canada through September 5. Surveying Cran’s artistic production over the past thirty-five years, Chris Cran, Sincerely Yours features over 100 paintings and drawings from the national collection, other institutions and private lenders. It is the most comprehensive exhibition on Cran ever produced.

Additionally, TrépanierBaer is launching the exhibition’s fresh-off-the-press book. This 200-page tome includes 100 beautiful colour plates with thoughtful essays by Josée Drouin-Brisebois, Ryan Doherty, Nancy Tousley, William Wood and Bruce McCulloch. Limited quantities of the autographed catalogue are available for purchase; reserve your catalogue now and come collect it at the opening! Please e-mail judyc@tbg1.com for more information.

We look forward to seeing you at this Cranfest!!!!!
