915 18 Avenue Southwest, Calgary

This humble Homestead House was built in 1912 during Calgary’s pre WW1 building boom.
This home is best known as being the residence of internationally acclaimed artist and lithographer John Harold
Thomas Snow, who lived here from 1951 – 2001. He used the house as residence and studio.
The addition, constructed circa 1961 was designed by Snow’s friend and colleague, well-known architect and
artist, Maxwell Bates.
After Snow’s death in 2001 the property housed the Markin-Flanagan Distinguished Writers Programme, and is
now used by Calgary’s The New Gallery as office space and archives and an artist-in-residence program.
