Looking for something different

Davis Phaneuf has always looked for a unique angle to her art.

The local artist’s work ranges from abstract images to paintings of how Prince Albert landmarks would look if they were taken over by kids. It’s all part of her desire to show another perspective.

“I just wanted to show something different around P.A.,” she says. “I take part in the Winter Festival art show a lot and it’s a lot of the same folk art, and there’s nothing wrong with that, but I wanted to show that there can be other stuff than just landscapes and animal paintings.”

On Saturday, Phaneuf officially opened a selection of her work at the Grace Campbell Gallery, appropriately titled “Odd One Out.” It includes a collection of her favourite works from the last four or five years, almost all of which are acrylic paintings.
