Coming of Age: The Graduates

Gillian Mitchell, "From Within II", 12" x 18" x 2", clay and wood
Alberta College of Art & Design grad Mitchell says of her process: "Different approaches are taken from different artists, I choose to mimic nature not close to me and create forms and vessels that capture the essence of bark, stalagmites, coral and even cliffs.  I make my vessel forms simply to lift ones spirits or make them smile as they enter a room and see a familiar shape, colour, or texture."

"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 runs at the Visual Arts Alberta Gallery until July 14. The gallery is open Wed-Fri from 10-4 pm and Sat from 12-4 pm. The gallery will be closed on June 30 for Canada Day.
