Fifty Years of Art
The Nickle Galleries is celebrating five decades of art instruction, mentoring and art-making that has been instrumental in shaping Calgary’s art community. Marking this milestone will be an exhibition at the Nickle Galleries showcasing the achievements of UCalgary’s studio art program — including the works of instructors, students and off-campus artists. Independent curator, Mary-Beth Laviolette, will oversee the selection of artwork that best illustrates the stories of the gallery’s past and present. Notable alumni from across faculties will select one favourite work of art in the exhibition, and contribute their thoughts on the piece, and memories of the department.
The exhibit runs Sept. 23-Dec. 10.
