Beyond Wabi Sabi

Date: Feb 3, 2024

Deadline: Feb 17, 2024 - 11:45 pm

The Alberta Society of Artists is pleased to present a solo exhibition featuring the work of Alberta artist Mary Whale, “Beyond Wabi Sabi,” at the Walterdale Theatre in Edmonton.

This exhibition coincides with the play Amigo’s Blue Guitar by Joan MacLeod, which runs February 7- 17, 2024, at the Walterdale Theatre, 10322 83 Ave. NW, Edmonton, Alberta.

There will be a public opening on Tuesday, February 6, 7-8 pm followed by a free preview of Walterdale’s production of ‘Amigo’s Blue Guitar’. The exhibition is free and open to the public when the theatre is open.

“The term Wabi Sabi connotes such qualities as impermanence, humility, asymmetry and imperfection in things. The way we, as people, age is not unlike that of a revered piece of pottery that has survived the ravages of use; the cracks to be filled with gold. The ‘beauty of use’ can be witnessed in old people; the patina, the textures, and the incredible lines.”

The Alberta Society of Artists is the oldest society of juried professional artists in the province, providing art education and exhibitions in public venues since 1931. The Society’s goal is to increase public awareness and appreciation of the visual arts in Alberta.
