Sneak Peek – Art from the Unknown

Here is a sneak peek of what I will have on display for Art from the Unknown. It’s been a busy month already! This past week I took down my graduating show at the Faculty of Extension, and attended the opening reception for Visual Arts Alberta/CARFAC’s Ten Voices 2017. Now it’s time to get ready for Art from the Unknown.

Art From the Unknown is a group exhibition, which originated with former Edmonton-Strathcona MLA Raj Pannu and is continued by the Hon. Rachel Notley.

Saturday October 28, 2017, 9:00 AM – 6:00 PM – General Gallery
Sunday October 29, 2017, 11:00 AM – 3:00 PM – General Gallery

This free event provides a no-cost gallery space to our community’s new and emerging artists. Over the 3 days of the exhibition, 700 visitors are expected to view 70+ artists at this free gallery.

All exits look the same Edmonton 2017

“… accomplishment shouldn’t be the end of the road, just the starting point for the next leap forward.”
Harvey Mackay

My solo graduating show is now up at the Extension Gallery in Enterprise Square until October 18th.  I am grateful to those who took time out of their weekend September 30th to come to the opening reception and share their impressions with me. A few people asked what I would do next, now that I am finishing my certificate in visual arts. I plan to make more art! I have several different directions I am interested in exploring, and lots more learning to do. I can’t take typical art classes (chemicals, dust, etc.) but I will find a way to continue adding to my art education as I go. I also plan to become an expert art packer. All exits look the same will be at the Artpoint Gallery in Calgary in February 2018, and I plan to apply to other public or artist-run galleries.  Below is a selection of photos from the exhibition.

All in all, I am excited for what lies ahead and I welcome my next leap forward.
