Patti Dyment

Living, hiking and painting in the Canadian Rockies for over three decades has given Patti a profound connection to, and appreciation of, the mountain landscape. She paints en plein air as much as possible. “When I look back at my plein air paintings, I am immediately returned to the experience of painting in that location; the wind, the temperature, the elation of grand splendour. My goal is to communicate all those sensations in all my landscapes, to connect with the viewer through a shared experience of natural beauty," she says. "I paint relentlessly, I teach painting, I study painting, I think about and dream about painting. It’s a wonderful fascination." In 2011, Patti was awarded signature status with the Federation of Canadian Artists.

Robert Bateman

"In this painting, I have shown the bird in a dynamic calling pose. Although there is a fierce, bold thrust to the visual image, if you could hear the actual cry, you would probably be disappointed. It is a rather faint, high-pitched “chittering” noise. I have used the angular thrust of the dead tree to add to the force of the bird. In the far distance is a flock of gulls hinting at the proximity of water, which is the inevitable component of his habitat.” Robert Bateman. 

The Robert Bateman Centre, supported by the Bateman Foundation, is a facility to house and preserve Robert Bateman’s legacy, and a multi-purpose meeting place for collaboration, creative thinking, and networking about in-nature education initiatives.
