The exhibition Storytellers examines the telling of stories in visual art. With art works drawn from the collection of the Alberta Foundation for the Arts, this exhibition explores the actual narratives related by artists and the various ways they have been portrayed.

Based on our everyday interactions with common forms of visual communication, artist Gerry Dotto's images re-interpret these systems of communication and present them in a new light.

The exhibition Storytellers was curated by Shane Golby and organized by the Art Gallery of Alberta for the Alberta Foundation for the Arts Travelling Exhibition Program. The AFA Travelling Exhibition program is supported by the AlbertaFoundation for the Arts.

Storytellers runs from July 25th until August 28th, 2013 at the Visual Arts Alberta Gallery. A reception is planned for Thursday, August 1 from 7-9:30 pm. Gallery hours are Wed-Fri 10-4pm and Sat 12-4pm. The Gallery will be closed on August 3.
