ACC @ the YEG
The Alberta Craft Council has two mini exhibitions in the Rotational Art Program at the Edmonton International Airport. The EIA is home to six rotational displays and five partner displays that are integrated as part of the building. Currently the Rotational Art Program features work by ACC member Brenda Malkinson and JoAnna Lange.
Brenda is a glass artist, wood cut print artist and educator. She attended the Alberta College of Art + Design, graduating with distinction in 1975. Malkinson’s work has focused on large-scale contemporary glass installations. Current work in glass and woodcut printmaking draw from intimate interpretation of natural forms integrating fragments of foliage, ancient iconography, colour gradations, and patterns.
JoAnna Lange (Edmonton) is a ceramic artist transplanted from Winnipeg, Manitoba and now living and working in Edmonton. Her production line, Stoneboat Pottery, is a reflection of her rural Saskatchewan roots and celebrates functional ware through the use of colour and motifs reflecting the natural world. JoAnna has been active at the community level, teaching clay classes for the past twenty-some years and has served on the boards of Clifton Studios Co-op and the Manitoba Craft Council.
