Coming of Age: The Graduates

Joseph P. LaGrange, "Dream Streets #2", 3' x 4', acrylic on board
Red Deer College grad LaGrange says: "Both paintings come from my Dream Street Series and are influenced surrealist artists: Rene Magritte, Paul Delvaux and Giorgio de Chirico...but, with the use of my own imaginative tools. I am interested in the use of colour to emphasize my feelings at the time and add images that i find exciting to paint."

"Coming of Age: The Graduates" is a group show featuring the work of recent art school graduates. Ten artists were selected from five Albertan communities: Edmonton, Calgary, Red Deer, Grande Prairie, and Lethbridge. The show opens to the public on June 7 with an official opening reception on Thursday, June 21 from 6:30 to 9:30 pm.
