Beacon Original Art: Our Journey

An inaugural 1-day annual show in 2009 had 8 painters and 1 photographer exhibiting. We were primarily supported by fellow artists along with friends and family. Since, the response from art enthusiasts in Calgary has been exciting, rewarding, humbling, and unimagined.

Founder Tammy Watt / acrylic painter, and her husband Stephen, now hold biannual 2-day boutique shows in the vibrant neighbourhood of Bridgeland Riverside. Approximately 50 artists showcase paintings, jewelry, glass, photography, ceramics, sculpture and textiles at each event. Over 300 artists from across Canada have participated; for some it was a personal goal to exhibit at a juried art event while others have gone on to become professional artists who are represented by galleries, provincial art collections and shops, and/or joined trade show art markets. We are grateful to our loyal and energetic guests, over 900 per event, and are passionate about building relationships through the arts in Calgary. Stay tuned for what's next!


We would like to acknowledge the traditional territories and oral practices of the Blackfoot Nations, which includes the Siksika, the Piikani and the Kainai. We also acknowledge the Tsuut’ina and Stoney Nakoda First Nations, the Métis Nation, and all people who make their home in the Treaty 7 region of Southern Alberta.
