Intertwined – group show by ACAD’s Fibre Students
February 12 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm MST
An event every week that begins at 10:00am on Monday, repeating until June 15, 2018
Intertwined features the work of ACAD Fibre students from the School of Craft + Emerging Media. The class was invited to create works inspired by Alberta and exhibited at ATB’s ArtVault Gallery.
The emerging artists exploring various disciplines, combined their interest in surface design and silkscreen printing on fabric, and crafted 13 inspiring pieces of fibre work from the following nine artists:
- Sophia Lengle
- Jasmine Whiteley-Steel
- Eva Birhanu
- Emelyne Smith
- Kali Edwards
- Selina Martineau
- Zonglu Zhu
- Alana Larsen
- Monika Strozyk
The students took a school assignment to the next level and expressed a great interest in the project. The yardages created in the process reveal diverse perspectives and offer personal commentary on nature, urban and rural life, economy and culture in Alberta.
“ACAD is always looking for opportunities to collaborate with exciting Alberta organizations, like ATB, that celebrate creativity and innovation,” said ACAD President + CEO Dr. Daniel Doz. “ATB has called Alberta a masterpiece and the students were inspired by the beauty and diversity of the province. We are grateful for ATB Financial. Their support has opened up the door for our students and alumni to display their amazing works in an inclusive gallery setting to a brand new audience.”
Intertwined is free and open to the public from Monday, February 12 until Friday, June 15, 2018, at ATB Stephen Avenue (102 8 Ave SW, Calgary, Alberta) during regular branch hours (Monday thru Friday from 8 a.m. until 4:30 p.m.)
