Plate Techtonics, which celebrates the varied Albertan landscape, is on display at CUE Library from November 13th to December 8th 2018. This new art exhibit is brought to you by the Art Gallery of Alberta’s travelling exhibition program and features work by artists Jennifer Annesley, Jim Davies, Les Graff, and David Shkolny.
“There is a tendency when speaking of landscape paintings and drawings to state the obvious: that such art work is about the land. Such a generalization, however, ignores the nuances expressed within this practice. First, ‘the land’ is not a static entity. Rather, and as the topography of Alberta attests, it moves from terrain to terrain with each geographical region having its own unique character and demonstrating a great deal of diversity within itself.” – Shane Golby, Art Gallery of Alberta for the Alberta Foundation for the Arts Travelling Exhibition Program.
