The Art of James Marshall is a beautiful coffee table book featuring Marshall’s life, told through his vast and varied body of work (including his pencil drawings, large-scale murals, ceramic art and photography). This book was put together over the past couple years by a great group of people who volunteered many hours of their time. Bill & Elizabeth Yuill paid for the production cost and Hideaway Studios donated their design time.
In the end, 2,000 beautiful hardcover books were printed and donated to us for sale. Thanks to the generosity of everyone involved, 100% of the proceeds of the sale of the book will go towards the restoration of the Soft Mud Interpretive Centre at the Medicine Hat Brick & Tile plant. The books retail for $39.95 (+gst) and can be found in Medalta’s gift shop, the Tourism Medicine Hat Visitors’ Centre and Kitchen Ka-Boodle (which is one of the best places in Medicine Hat to find anything for your home).
With Christmas right around the corner, this would make a great Christmas gift. It is a wonderful look at the life and artwork of one of Alberta’s most prolific artists. His work can be seen across Canada, even reaching into Europe and the United States.
