Celebrating Alberta: Work from the Alberta Society of Artists

Celebrating Alberta exhibits a variety of artistic mediums in which artists unveil the visible human imprint on the land and an unforeseen ground where a unique spirit stands. From traditional landscapes to more contemporary views of Alberta, the artwork showcases a larger meaning and representation about Alberta’s identity; images and symbols of the land are inscribed in their work. Together, the artists see their work as a language, a marker of their own shared vision of Alberta that manifests the ability to incorporate creativity as an alternative mode of expression for provincial pride.

Exhibiting Artists: Wendy Borglum, Blanca Botero-Fuentes, Billy Rae Busby, Linda Craddock, Diane Langlois, Lauren Huot, Michele King, Elizabeth Kirschenman, Yuriko Kitamura, Malissa Lea, Trevor Louden, Talar & Jeane Claude Prefontaine, Deborah Lougheed Sinclair, & Dawn Thrasher. 

View Celebrating Alberta from January 30 - March 15, 2014 in the Visual Arts Alberta Gallery. The gallery is open from Wed-Fri, 10-4 pm and Sat, 12-4 pm.
