New Exhibition | Invisible by PAINTER8 at Galerie Cite

Date: Aug 21, 2019

Deadline: Sep 26, 2019 - 7:00 pm

Please join us at PAINTER8, and other Edmonton art lovers alike, for the opening night of the INVISIBLE contemporary art exhibition about mental health awareness.

INVISIBLE is a group exhibition created by artists of PAINTER8, a non-profit arts society that uniquely holds painting as its primary medium.

PAINTER8’s exhibition, INVISIBLE, seeks to provoke dialogue on the topic of mental illness and challenge the stigma surrounding it. Inspiration behind INVISIBLE stems from the artists’ personal experiences, struggles and victories with mental illness. The artists have also engaged with their local community to collect their stories and spoken to mental health professionals to gain further insight on this subject.

INVISIBLE features over 40 artworks by all eight of PAINTER8's artists: Craig Talbot (Cardston, AB), Tim Rechner (Edmonton), Beth Pederson (Edmonton), Tom Cummins (Vancouver), Chrissy Cheung (Vancouver), Rafael Sottolichio (Montréal), miss hatt (Montréal) and guest artist, Kai Chan (Toronto).

Artists will be in attendance. Open to the public. Cash bar at the opening. Catalogue available at the opening reception.

Exhibition runs from Sept 26, 2019 through January 11, 2020 within the 2-level exhibition space at La Cité Francophone.

Galerie Cité is open 7 days a week.

Hours: Monday-Friday: 7am - 9pm; Saturday: 8am- 9pm; Sunday: 9am- 5pm.
