college receives donation
of original art by local painter

The Lethbridge Community College Board of Governors received a donation of an original artwork entitled “College Student” from local artist Linda Horner.

It’s been a labour of love for 16 years, and now Linda Horner has found a new home for an acrylic artwork that captures the essence of a college student hurrying to class on a windy autumn day. She presented the 3’ by 4’ canvas to the College at the Board of Governors meeting on February 16, 2000.

An art teacher at Immanuel Christian High School, Horner’s lifelong interest in art began in Manitoba where she was born and raised. She obtained baccalaureate degrees in Fine Arts and Education in Winnipeg, and embarked on a career as an art instructor. The Horner family relocated to Alberta in 1979. In all three centres that they have called home, including Peace River, Lloydminster and Lethbridge, art has been a cornerstone of both her career and her achievements in artistic expression. While in Peace River, two of her works were puchased by the Alberta Art Foundation. In Lloydminster, she taught University of Saskatchewan art courses. Today, she shares her profound love of art and her enthusiasm for artistic expression with high school students.

Locally, her art has been purchased by the Lethbridge Regional Hospital, the Gyro Railroad Club as well as by many private individuals. In addition to her donation to Lethbridge Community College, Horner has donated artworks to the University of Lethbridge. Southminster United Church, the Japanese United Church, the World Citizen Centre and the Ecumenical Campus Ministry.
She has also had numerous exhibits showcasing her original artworks done in both acrylic and watercolor in Winnipeg, Peace River, Lloydminster, Saskatoon, Edmonton, Lethbridge and Fernie. She is currently developing a new dimension to her art that combines computer generated image with original poetry.
The College will hang the “College Student” canvas in the Centre Core area before assigning it a permanent display location on the campus.
