VAAA GALLERY EXHIBITIONS: “Memory Idol” by Jinzhe Cui and “Off the Wall” by Kim Bruce

VAAA presents: “Memory Idol” by Jinzhe Cui and “Off The Wall” by Kim Bruce

JINZHE CUI’S photographic work alludes to the space between memory, dream and illusion. Her dramatic imagery invites us to wander without expectation, allowing the journey to reveal our own unique stories.

KIM BRUCE’S “Off The Wall” is a series of cast encaustic sculptures that study the architecture of form. She explores the use of everyday of objects as abstract architectural elements and creates rich, harmonic visual dialogues.

OPENING RECEPTION: THURSDAY, APRIL 28, 7-9:30pm
PERFORMANCE: IN THREE PARTS, STARTING AT 7:30pm (more…)

VAAA’S ALBERTA GALLERY REQUIREMENT SURVEY NOW AVAILABLE

The VAAA Alberta Gallery Requirement Survey, 4 years in the making, can now be downloaded.  This booklet contains summary information for Alberta public and commercial galleries and artist-run centres:  the information you need for location, mandate, submission requirements, and terms of exhibition. The intent of this Gallery Survey is to provide Alberta artists with a useful tool when planning their exhibition and marketing strategies, in addition to giving Alberta galleries a resource that they can give to artists – a valuable, time-saving aid for both.  We hope you find it useful.
