Work of the Week: Making the Christmas Cakes

Date: Dec 11, 2017

The Work of the Week for December 11 - 18, 2017 is Making the Christmas Cakes by Hazel Litzgus.

Hazel Litzgus, from Lloydminster, has exhibited with the Canadian Society of Painters, Ottawa (1966), at the Canadian Art Gallery, Calgary (1971), the National Gallery, Ottawa (1973), and Masters Gallery, Calgary (1975, 1981, 1988, 1995), as well as numerous others. Her subject matter is taken from childhood memories of prairie life, scenes from town life, farm work, and play.

This artwork was acquired in 2011 as part of a generous donation of 14 paintings from the artist to the AFA art collection. The series of artworks was included in the AFA Travelling Exhibition Program (TREX) through an exhibition entitled Memories of the Farm, which circulated throughout the province September 2012 to September 2015.
