Dean Tatam Reeves, Artist

Dean Tatam Reeves’ studio is under an open sky, wherever he plants his painting chair. In this way he produces an ongoing series of works in pastels and watercolours that investigate diverse Canadian landscapes. Dean is at home whether he is exploring cool Central Alberta forests and wetlands of the Beaver Hills UNESCO Biosphere, windswept open prairies, rugged Great Lakes shores, the wilds of Algonquin Park or the tidal basin of the Bay of Fundy.

Born in England, Dean has lived in Western Canada since 1956. After receiving a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Alberta in 1978 Dean established an ongoing art practice. Throughout his career he has served the public in roles as an art educator, arts manager and curator. His artworks can be found in numerous public, corporate and private art collections.

Bonnie Scott, Artist

"I work in oil and watercolor, with a commitment to painting images reflecting the beauty and joy found in this world.


My art practice explores the visual language of abstraction, particularly modern geometric and formal abstraction.  The use of the grid helps me represent  both issues of interrelationships and interconnectedness.


My paintings reflect my responses, both emotionally and intellectually, inclusive of the poetic possibilities of colour, form and pattern."

All original artwork is for sale. Please inquire on site at the Bow Valley Ranche Restaurant or email to info@bowvalleyranche.com
