The ASA is proud to present the ‘Members’ Choice 2022′ featuring the works of Juried and Life Members of the Alberta Society of Artists. This annual show gives our members the opportunity to submit a work of their choosing; this creates an ever-unexpected collection of works from some of Alberta’s finest Visual Artists.
A visual art practice built on ‘Animating the Spirit’…
I embark on a scavenger hunt through a personal and cultural memory of headlines, magazine images, photos, ephemera collected from the bottoms of drawers, remnants of nature, stamps and stencils, which is textured, coloured, glued, torn, or over-painted. The sum of it is considered with the undertones of symbol and metaphor, politics, science, anthropology and futurism.
For the past two years, the only image facing many of us was in the mirror. Alberta artists were asked to reflect on what facing the image means to them in the context of the portrait.
Join the Artists from the Asian Roots Trio Exhibition at the ASA Gallery for a LIVE Kimono drawing session, and the closing of the exhibition.
The ASA Gallery will also be open during the event.
Tickets for this event are REQUIRED to ensure adequate space.
Asian Roots Trio, A.R.T. for short, is a showcase of our Asian narrative. Each of us has our own distinct story about our Asian heritage since we all have unique backgrounds and experiences. Although we did not search each other out, we all came to an intersection through our common interest in traditional Asian culture. Our choice of mediums, including oil painting, drawing, and watercolour painting, form a diverse yet cohesive vision of traditional Asian aesthetics as we tell the story of our Asian Roots.
