Vera Greenwood, An Alberta Rat, 1990, acrylic, china marker on plywood,
Collection of the Alberta Foundation for the Arts
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.

Vera Greenwood describes her work this way: "My art practice is subjectively personal, placing emphasis on story telling, social studies and a conceptual approach to representing the everyday - a way of working based on observation of the world. The work is highly autobiographical in nature and reveals a keen interest in record keeping, investigative research and the ethics involved in the act of looking."

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 Alberta Foundation 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.
