As of November 2021 I am excited to be showing my Fun Money series of abstract paintings alongside the artists of Abstract Art Canada. Fun Money: Can I Lick It? (Guilty Pleasures), Debbie.lee Miszaniec This autumn I was invited by artist Jim Ulrich to show my abstract art through a new art e-commerce venue, Abstract Art Canada. I was impressed by the small and targeted selection of artists represented through Abstract Art Canada, the focus on learning more about the artist, as opposed to being just another sales portal, and the truly supportive interaction with the Abstract Art Canada team! Check it out, make a purchase, support Canadian Art and let yourself be transported out of your everyday, without even leaving home!

So I'd love to say the livestream gallery tour and Q&A went off without a hitch however that anyone who managed to catch it would know that was not the case. While the gallery tested it earlier in the day and it worked at that time, when the actual time of the event was upon us we were not able to stream the event from the gallery page. This necessitated about a half hour of frantic typing and texting and posting to cancel the scheduled event and create a new one on the galleries programming page and redirect viewers to the new event. I managed to post redirects for anyone coming to the event through links from my One Life Fine Art page or my personal profile, however I am…
So what am I about in this exhibition installed now at the Alberta Society of Artists Gallery? I've uploaded this video explaining my process to my youtube channel.

On Thursday May 20th the Alberta Society of Artists Gallery in Calgary will be conducting a live-streamed tour of the exhibition where you will be able to ask some of the artists (including myself) questions about the show as we take you around it.

The Artist's of Medium of Exchange c. 2010:L-R: Jesica Campbell, Koren Scott, Jessica Hauser, Penny Chase and Debbie.lee Miszaniec Five women walked into an art school… Three straight women, one gay woman and one who says it’s nobody business walked into an art school… An agnostic, a Wiccan, a Catholic and two atheists walked into an art school… Three settlers, an Inuit and a Metis walked into an art school… Five artists of diverse backgrounds walked out of an art school… …and had a conversation: They called themselves Medium of Exchange. They made work together and apart about topics relevant to them all. Then their lives and professional practices diverged again. After a decade Jesica Campbell, Penny Chase, Jessica Hauser, Debbie.lee Miszaniec and Koren Scott have re-converged for Medium of Exchange: Process. Process is about the process of making…
Gallery View, Medium of Exchange: Process, Alberta Society of Artists' Gallery, Calgary AB 2021 Medium of Exchange, Process The culmination of 3 years of work and planning has, even in the face of a global pandemic, come to fruition.

The exhibition will run to June 5th. However due to Covid-19 the gallery is currently closed to the public and will remain so until Stage 3 of Alberta's relaunch plan. We were on the verge of reaching Stage 3 prior…
Detail of Happy Birthday, 2020 I realize that Covid-19 Has taken over the world, and certainly my practice of the last few months with the Covid Chronicles and the related attention that that has brought to my studio. However, earlier this year I blogged about discovering a new /growing fascination in my work when I realized I had been painting a lot of food for the past few years. So I decided to make it formal and introduce a new gallery section to my website. Cravings will showcase all of my food related paintings, wherever they might fit in to my other themes and bodies of work. Check it out, watch it grow, & shoot me an email and let me know what you think! Saskatoon Berry Jam II
