Today is International Women’s Day, so we want to share with you two TREX exhibitions that celebrate women artists and their artwork! Both exhibitions can be viewed online.
WOMEN X WOMEN is curated by Xanthe Isbister, Esplanade Arts and Heritage Centre and features portraits of women by 15 female artists. It showcases works from the Alberta Foundation for the Arts’ permanent collection that span several decades—from 1947 to 2015.
Real Women is curated by Shane Golby, Art Gallery of Alberta. According to the curator, this exhibition creates space for women’s experiences and stories to be told and recognizes the contributions women make to our communities.
Real Women features artwork by Edmonton textile artist Allison Tunis. You can read more about Allison and her practice in the artist profile we did on her.
