The Military Museums of Calgary

The Journey to Remembrance continues its own journey as it is now being shown at The Military Museums of Calgary. It will be on loan until The Founder's Gallery begin to create their Vimy Ridge exhibition. 

I love the symbolism of where the painting is currently being displayed.  As one leaves The Founder's Gallery, the image appears in the distance.  Walking towards these soldiers, the viewer begins to walk with them until reaching the painting to contemplate their own journey to remembrance.

Perhaps this journey for some begins very quickly...for people like myself, those ah ha moments take time to become tangible. Then they are so tangible that wearing the poppy no longer feels like quite enough and there is an urgency to do more.
