Dale Kirschenman

Dale Kirschenman grew up in the country near Medicine Hat, Alberta. There he developed a deep appreciation for the land and sky of the prairies. In his early years he spent a great deal of time photographing the landscapes of Alberta.

During a visit to London, England in the early 1980’s Dale had his first exposure to the work of J.M.W. Turner and John Constable; artists who continue to have a profound influence on his painting. Over the next ten years he attended various courses in painting and drawing at the Alberta College of Art and Design and the University of Calgary.   In 1994 Dale enrolled as a full time student at the Alberta College of Art and Design, completing a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Painting (with Distinction) in 1998.

In addition to his painting practice he has taught painting in the “Summer Series Program” at Red Deer College as well as a summer course at the Alberta College of Art and Design. He has also facilitated painting workshops at the Leighton Centre and led art appreciation tours for the City of Calgary.

Kirschenman’s paintings are present in the collection of the Alberta Foundation for the Arts and the Civic Art Collection of the City of Calgary as well as numerous private and corporate collections in Canada and the U.S.A.
