Colours on the Block
September 1 – 10 Have you ever wondered how those gorgeous patterns and designs magically appear on street-facing walls? Watch professional artists paint large-scale murals in the Old Strathcona and Downtown communities during Mural Massive. This mural and music festival features DJs and comedy programs, a block party and mural tours. Check out the mural map and experience urban art at its best.
September 1 – 27 Miller Art Gallery in Roxy Theatre presents Kinetic Zen, an abstract visual art exhibition featuring Vancouver-based artist Johnny Taylor. While he currently creates art in his New York studio, Taylor reflects on his intensive and energetic inspirations from travelling to other parts of North America, Europe and Japan. Experience an immersion in urban culture in oil and wax.
Until September 10 Catch the last few days of the Imagine Monet immersive exhibition at Edmonton Expo Centre. Is walking into The Water Lily Pond a way of memorizing the soon-gone summer? You’ve got to see the impressionist mastermind in 3D.
Print It Out
Until September 17 In celebration of its 40th anniversary, the Society of Northern Alberta Print-artists (SNAP) presents SNAP at 40: Anniversary Showcase. The exhibition showcases an archive of skills, methods and techniques in printmaking at this community-based art centre. There are thousands of creative works waiting for you to discover.
Until October 2 “What is it like to live like a bee?” asked artists Alana Bartol and Bryce Krynski. At this special exhibition at the Art Gallery of Alberta, all roses sleep (inviolate light), you’ll get to follow a bee’s point of view in an ultraviolet video. Sniff the sweet scents of roses and dream a dream of a solitary bee.
