Because it never occurs to us that we cannot
Robin Lambert

September 1 - October 13, 2018
Artist Talk & Reception: Saturday, September 29 from 2 - 4pm
Alberta Craft Gallery - Edmonton & Calgary are host sites for the Alberta Culture Days Celebration

"Because it never occurs to us that we cannot," describes the DNA of Alberta. 'I am here' says Alberta. 'I must grow.'

It is also a mantra for both the artist and our contemporary cultural impulse.  I cannot stop.  I do not want to stop.  I will not stop. I want to make, to build, to elevate.

Interdisciplinary ceramic artist Robin Lambert investigates the need and desire to be a part of a larger social system. 

 

Upcoming Exhibitions

 

On the Family Farm | Loretta Kyle

October 20 - December 1, 2018
Interactive Demonstration: Saturday, October 27 from 12:30 -2pm
Reception & Talk: Saturday, October 27 from 2-4pm

Loretta Kyle pays homage to her rural upbringing, exploring memories and observations captured in stone through her exhibition On the Family Farm.  Loretta knows that it takes a strong soul to dedicate one's life to farming and worries about what life would be like if the family farm disappears. In her exhibition she does her part to pay tribute to her farming heritage and allow audiences to explore the gentler side of farming, capturing moments usually only reserved for people who are passionately living close to the land.

 

Ticket to Ride | Lisa Head Harbidge

October 20 - December 1, 2018
Reception: Saturday, October 27, 2018

Ticket to Ride is an array of glass and mixed media pieces by Lisa Head Harbidge depicting the ups and downs of life.  Much like the rides at an amusement park, we are on our own ride and every minute is a timed event.  The glass pieces utilize a variety of techniques, from traditional painted, stained glass to kiln formed glass.
