Calgary billboard features painting by alumna Emily Bickell

Thursday, December 17, 2020

Emily Bickell and her Reese Peanut Butter Cup billboardEmily Bickell (BA Studio Art 1998) recently had her painting of Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups selected to promote the candy manufacturer's product on a billboard in Calgary.  The painting was chosen from 6,000 submissions, in a variety of art forms.

It’s kind of an odd showcase for Brickell, a fine arts graduate of the University of Waterloo, who has exhibited her work in galleries in Calgary, Toronto, Niagara-on-the-Lake and Switzerland, among many others, but that’s what you get when combine a talented painter with someone who spent her high school years in southern Ontario eating Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.
