Local Artist Leaving Impact Across Rocky View County
April 9, 2015
Local artist Glen Collin has remained a prominent member in the Airdrie arts scene for years. He has art pieces showcasing the beautiful landscapes of southern Alberta, including Airdrie, Balzac, Irricana, Beiseker, Kathyrn and Crossfield.
Born in Northern Alberta in 1952, Collin has always had art as part of his life, and hopes to spread his love of it across southern Alberta.
“I would love for (painting) to be a full-time career,” said Collin.
Collin went to the Alberta College of Art + Design (ACAD) in Calgary. Initially he had hoped to take fine arts, but found himself quickly drawn to the commercial art side of ACAD.
