With two new exhibits being unveiled in October, then two more in November, the Art Gallery of Alberta is also set to welcome back its members and visitors.
Beginning October 9,Let’s Do the Time Warp Again is a collection of lenticular prints from artist Harley Morman. What are lenticular images? You might remember them from toys, children’s books or comic-book covers. Two images are set on a series of panels. Look at it from straight on, and you might see a smiling face. Look from the side, and you’d see a sad face. The image changes as the viewer moves.
Also on October 9, Soak Stripe Splatter brings together works from the AGA’s collection that are bright and colourful, from stunning photographs to vibrant abstracts. If the cooler, shorter fall days are starting to bring you down, this could be your antidote.
George Littlechild: Here I am, Can you see Me? begins Nov. 6. Littlechild is a survivor of the Sixties Scoop and his work focuses on the injustices suffered by Indigenous people, from residential schools to cultural assimilation. It won’t be an easy exhibit to take in, but one we might all need to take in.
Making Art, Building Community also begins Nov. 6. It celebrates one century of work from the Edmonton Art Club, including select work from its members.
