Glen Boles Artwork - Conrad's Peaks

Renowned mountain photographer and artist Glen Boles has generously offered the use of three of his pen and ink drawings of Conrad Kain peaks as a fund raiser for CKCS events and projects.

Glen has climbed and photographed hundreds of peaks in the Canadian Rockies and Interior Ranges, and has developed a keen appreciation for Kain’s accomplishments:

"I first heard of  Conrad Kain in 1959 when I bought and read a copy of his autobiography ‘Where The Clouds Can Go’. To say the least I was very impressed. After climbing  peaks which he had lead first ascents on back in the early 1900's I was even more impressed.

Upon being asked if I wanted to contribute to the Kain Centennial, I was only too happy to provide copies of my drawings of the three peaks where he made his most celebrated  first ascents, Mt Robson, Bugaboo Spire and Mt Louis".

Wilmer graphic artist Frank Purschwitz worked with three of Glen’s most popular prints to create this stunning montage. Printed on poster-weight 12” x 18” matte paper, the prints have been signed by Glen, and are suitable for framing.

Unframed prints were available for $20 at The Alpine Club of Canada’s booth at the Banff Mountain Book and Film Festival beginning Nov 5.

Mail order copies are available by sending a cheque made out to CKCS for $30 (includes mailing tube and postage) to Pat Morrow, 9154 Fairview Ave, Invermere, BC V0A 1K5.

The CKCS would like to thank Glen, Frank, Brant Parker and Chris Pullen for their creative contribution toward this memorable piece of artwork.
