Becky considers it a blessing to be part of the connection which artwork provides between artist and viewer, and has discovered that hikes and walks in the natural, majestic beauty of the Alberta Foothills, Canadian Rockies and the West Coast are favourite times to ‘observe, record and reflect’ for later artistic pursuits in the studio.

So very impressed with the friendliness and speed of service I received from The Avenue Gallery. I ordered a beautiful pendant through their website and very soon after received a warm email thanking me and letting me know about delivery. They generously sped up delivery for me so that I could wear the piece to a special event and indeed it arrived incredibly fast. Absolutely love my new pendant and would not hesitate to order from this gallery again. Thank you for a very positive online experience, The Avenue Gallery! – Cheryl L.
