For the month of September, we are welcoming local artist Jill Thomson to The Carrot Art Gallery. Come in from September 3–28th, 2019 and see familiar neighbourhood scapes and urban flora.

On September 26th, 2019, The Carrot will be hosting the Closing Reception of Jill Thomson's "Urban Gardens." Join us to bid a fond adieu to the whispering leaves and sweet scents of our summer wildflowers.

About the Artist

Jill Thomson's artwork evokes her personal history of a small town/prairie childhood, an urban Montreal young adulthood and a settled life as artist and mother of three in Edmonton. Her rich colourful palette and complex compositions celebrate a creative life in cities with generous front porches, cafes, bookstores, bicycle paths, gardens and ravines.
