Current Exhibitions

Three solo exhibitions come together in one space this spring at the Alberta Craft Gallery - Calgary.  Robin Lambert and Giselle Peters both explore contemporary culture through their ceramic sculptures while Brenda Malkinson reflects on the passage of time through glass and printmaking techniques.

April 6 - May 25, 2019
Artist Reception: Saturday, April 27, 2-4 pm


The ceramic works throughout Robin Lambert’s (Red Deer) exhibition are in various states of disrepair and conservation. Some pieces stand tall and erect, new and shiny, gold and brazen, while others are in a precarious and dilapidated condition, holding on to what form they can keep.




In this new body of work of glass and printmaking techniques, Brenda Malkinson, explores the interplay of light and surface.  Brenda captures isolated "snapshots", from infinite possiblities, through the passage of time.  The series aims to illustrate an individual's sublime placement in time and spce, while considering an infinite stream of fixed moments.




Milk & Oils is a collection of figurative sculpture, by Giselle Peters, that addresses the human condition through the lens of childhood.  A presentation of contemporary issues using images of children and toys, it highlights the childish behaviour of hte adult world and speculates about the long-term effects of our enterprises, particularly among these most vulnerable members of our society and on the future of our species.

Acceptable Bodies
Allison Tunis (Edmonton)

March 24 - June 2, 2018

The need to feel beautiful and desired is universal, but the standards for how to achieve that are so restrictive that it leaves little chance for many to accomplish this feat. Allison Tunis's embroidery pieces develop a discourse around cultural conditioning and societal implications of restrictive standards of beauty. Tunis’s works feature portraits of persons who shun outdated and constricting notions of what are considered “acceptable” bodies in our society and who celebrate their differences and diversity in ways that can be considered disobedient, either actively or passively. These art pieces are a way for Tunis to explore her own internal evolution away from the traditional paradigm of thin, white, cis, able-bodied women as the epitome of beauty and sexuality, towards a more inclusive understanding of beauty and the shunning of restrictive norms and aesthetic standards.


Chronicles of a Contemporary Dirtbag: transdisciplinarity and the things you think of when fixing a fence
Jamie Kroeger

March 24 - June 2, 2018

A career with Parks Canada as a resource technician, avalanche technician, and twenty years of travelling in the backcountry lends to the conceptual content that embodies Jamie’s work. She looks to art, science, and human experience as a means of creating a relatable connection to the complex systems that make up ecology and as a means of finding our humble place within them.


Dena Seiferling and Stefanie Staples (Calgary)

March 24 - June 2, 2018

When Dena Seiferling and Stefanie (Wong) Staples first met, they discovered a mutual enjoyment for working within the space that drifts between childhood fantasy and an adult’s reality. While discussing a potential collaboration, the value of bird biodiversity and the preservation of at-risk bird species rose the forefront. For this exhibition, the artists are focusing on distinct aspects of bird conservation.
