ACC members exhibition: Linda J. Hawke & Linda McBain Cuyler "Patterns of Places"

Art Gallery of St. Albert presents: Patterns of Places
September 6 - 29, 2012
opening reception September 6, 6-9 pm

Patterns of Places explores the fabric of the prairie landscape. Three artists take us on a journey from the ground and upwards with paint and fibre.

Linda J. Hawke's colourful works utilize paper sewing patterns, stitch, paint and other found objects. Inspired by the rural countryside and occupying figure-sized space, her sewn pieces ponder how we shape the land, and in turn how it shapes us. With acrylic paint, fabric and thread, Linda McBain Cuyler provides a bird's eye view of the colourful patterns and textures made by humans on the land. From square sections of farmlands to small lots in a city subdivision, looking down we are reminded that we are all not very far apart, or so very different. Journey to the colourful, trouble-free world depicted in Pam Weber's acrylic prairie landscape paintings. Her characteristic paintings, depictions of rural life and landscape, cultivate an escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

ACC member exhibition: Manola Borrajo - Giner "Glass Journal"

McMullen Gallery presents Glass Journal, Edmonton
September 1st – November 4th, 2012
Opening reception: Thursday September 6th, 2012 7pm – 9pm
(main floor) 8440-112 street, Edmonton

I have been working with a medium that many people see as fragile, but for me it’s a source of infinite possibilities and joy: Glass. I feel that I flow with it. The process of making glass require to work with a set of variables, not just art in the form of composition, colours, and design; also the technicality of the process is the key of success in a piece. In the end, you never know until you open the kiln. - Manola Borrajo - Giner
