Transmission and The Gatherers Reception

Join the Art Gallery of St. Albert on Thursday October 13 to celebrate the opening of our two fall exhibitions: Transmission by Lonigan Gilbert in the main exhibition gallery, and The Gatherers by April Matisz in our vault feature exhibition space.

Both artists will be in attendance. Lonigan Gilbert will be giving a talk at 7 PM. In his first solo exhibition, Transmission, Lonigan boldly tackles difficult subjects, often accompanied by a wry sense of humour. A member of the Fisher River Cree Nation in Treaty 5 territory, this emerging multidisciplinary artist has been living and working in amiskwaciywaskahikan, Treaty 6 territory, since 2016. Riots of colour and text fill his canvases, documenting observations of our chaotic contemporary world.

The Gatherers by Lethbridge’s April Matisz interprets the Greek aphorism “know thyself” as a call to understand our species’ entanglement with our planet. Her jewel tone collages show stylized figures entangled in acts of gathering life-sustaining essentials, and an understanding of humanity’s place as part of our world.”
