169 DROUIN- BRISEBOIS, Josée, et al Chris Cran : Sincerely Yours. First Edition in slipcase

DROUIN- BRISEBOIS, Josée, et al Chris Cran : Sincerely Yours. First Edition. Ottawa : National Gallery of Canada, (2016). Pp 204. Chris Cran (born 1949 in Ocean Falls, British Columbia) is a Canadian visual artist, based in Calgary, Alberta. "For the last four decades Chris Cran has experimented with traditional genres of painting such as still life and portraiture while at the same time challenging preconceived notions of these genres by creating tensions between a wide range of discordant styles notably Op Art, Pop Art, Photo-realism and Modernist Abstraction. He further complicates the experience with trompe l'oeil compositions in which the appearance of an image belies the method of its creation so that works that appear to be photographs, reliefs, or prints have been in fact rendered with paint. Art historical references, spoofs of painting conventions, and images from pulp magazines of the 1950s and 1960s are layered throughout, resulting in works that exude a rare and unapologetic boldness. Yet underneath the multitude of styles, techniques and a slippery sense of humour lies an insatiable appetite for experimenting with ideas that captivate the intellect and imagination, often those surrounding conventions of perception, artifice, theatricality and the art experience. Cran's work is proof that painting has not lost its power to be a dynamic, disruptive medium that can exist in a critical relationship to the world. Chris Cran has been exhibiting across the country since the late 1970s and his work is included in numerous private and public collections, among them the National Gallery of Canada and the Art Gallery ofAlberta. Cran has an active presence in Canada and specifically in Alberta where he has influenced a generation of artists at the Alberta College of Art and Design. Published to document a nationally touring exhibition, thisstriking monograph provides an comprehensive overview of one of Canada's m ost influential artists. Original essays by leading art critics and curators accompany dozens of colour plates featuring Cran's shimmering, graphically delicate paintings." The idea man / Bruce McCulloch -- Chris Cran, manifestly yours / Jose´e Drouin-Brisebois -- Chorus effect / Ryan Doherty -- On the double: Chris Cran at play in the expanded optical field / Nancy Tousley -- That mess is precise: a conversaqtion with Chris Cran / William Wood.

"The journal lists the names of clearks and voyageurs and contains some of the earliest native names on record. In addition to listing the names of those who worked and traded in the area, The English River Book catalogues duties, wages, stations, and many other details concerning the approximately one hundred voyageurs in the English River district during 1785 and 1786. Included are many familiar figures: such as Joseph Cartier, an interpreter whose fur trading career lasted almost sixty years, and Joseph Landry and Charles Doucette, the Acadian voyageurs who a few years later guided AlexanderMackenzie to the Arctic and the Pacific oceans. The English River Book als o contains inventories of trading goods, some familiar, some mysterious, and features a short Cree trading vocabulary. In The English River Book romantic lore of the fur trade and the adventurous lives of the traders are recounted on the spot and in the heat of events. This text is unique in that, rather than providing the reminiscences of a retired trader, it presents an active working journal." - from front dj flap.

It is a stirring, behind-the-scenes look at one of the most remarkable episodes in recent hockey history. In the span of two mont hs, both a hockey team and its city changed, and neither will be the same again. The Flames wrote an amazing story on their march past the Edmonton Oilers on the way to the Stanley Cup. This is that story -- the words, the feuds, the victories, the defeats, the emotions and passions -- told by Calgary Herald writers Eric Duhatschek and Steve Simmons, two of hockey's most respected journalists." - from the rear cover.

"Les Français d'Amérique possédent leur littérature orale héritée des générations précédentes. Parmi ces récits transmis de boyuche à oreille en Amérique du Nord mais d'origine française, se situent les légendes, courtes récits auxquels les Anciens prêtaient foi. Elles ont toujours répondu à un certain besoin psychologique, celui d'assurer la sécurité. Au sein de cet univers m,erveilleux qui rejoint le sacré, nous voyons agir des humains qui, redoutant la solitude, étendent leur espace pour se rassurer; ils libèrent la nature, apprivoisant ou supprimant des esprits mauvais, utilisant pour c faire des moyens religieux ou magiques. Il faut cependant reconnaître qu'en 1985, c'est surtout une valeur patrimoniale qu'on attribue àces récits." - from rear.

"The life story of Andrew Browning Bairdis the account of a remarkable man who was anxious to extend the Kingdom o f God in Western Canada. When he received the call at Leipzig he knew that he would be going forth in faith. Like Abraham he knew not where he was going, for he was unable to secure con crete information regarding the Edmonton Territory in which he was being asked to serve. He accepted the call knowing that he could get only as far as Winnipeg by rail. But the remaining nine hundred miles were a mystery to him. The very fact that he agreed to go with so little information showed the character of the man. Circumstances later brought him back to Winnipeg, and from then on he was to make a significant contribution not only to the West but to the whole of Canada, throughthe influence of the Presbyterian Church and Manitoba College. He was to b ecome one of the great Educationalists of the time. he time. He had a diversity of talents and James Robertson knew tha he was the ideal man for the special requirements of the great North-West. John M. King also recognized the abilities of this man from Motherwell.

"Finding the story of Early Canadian letters fascinating, partly because of his own boyhood spent on a frontier range in southeastern Alberta, Wilfred Eggleston here considers waht spiritual climate and what cultural atmosphere had to be evolved by migrants of the old societies to North America before a sphisticated and mature product such as belles lettres could be expected in this country. Mr. Eggleston re-examines the mqain events of Canadian letters in the Frontier days, as well as in the generations immediately following. While he finds those social conditions which are friendly to creative writing slow in emerging, he comes to the conclusion that the material potentials for a great literary era in Canada are likely to be realized soon. In a final chapter he discusses how far we have comein accumulating the cultural and spiritual soil likely to feed a really br illiant harvest of native letters." from the dj flap. Chapters : 1.
