Here is what Jim Erikson says about the artist:
“In 1972, while attending The Banff School of Fine arts, I wandered the halls in a state of rapture over what I was seeing. My favorite hall was lined with Walter Phillips prints, one of the founders of the Banff School of Arts. I was in awe of the prints’ translucency and incredibly delicate and precise printing technique. To this day I have never seen better woodblock prints or experienced a more intense, quiet Canadian view of this to which we belong.
And what true blooded Canadian is not aware of the Group of Seven? The quintessential Canadian artists whose iconic images of rocks, water, and trees gave us a visual voice to what this country is. In the show will be pieces by Lawren Harris, A.J. Casson, Franklin Carmichael, Edward Holgate, Franz Johnston, A. Y. Jackson. Fredrick Varley, J. E. H. Macdonald.”
