Happy Monday! Our Work of the Week for June 19-25, 2017 is Self Portrait Update by Kirsten Abrahamson.
This artwork is currently included in an exhibition In Dreams Awake, featuring artworks from the AFA collection on display at Visual Arts Alberta–Carfac Gallery in Edmonton. A featured exhibition of the WORKS Art and Design Festival and on display June 10 – August 19, this eclectic exhibition, inspired by the painting The Garden of Earthly Delights by Hieronymus Bosch, makes both thematic and stylistic connections between the past and contemporary expressions by artists from Alberta.
Visual Arts Alberta-CARFAC is located in the Harcourt House Building (10215-112 Street – 3rd Floor) and is open Wednesday to Friday, 10-4, and Saturdays, 12-4. A formal opening of the exhibition will occur on Thursday, June 22, during the announcement of the 2017 Eldon and Anne Foote Edmonton Arts Award recipient. At the end of August the exhibition will begin a three year tour of Alberta through the AFA Trex Program. The exhibition was curated by Shane Golby, Manager/Curator of Region 2 Trex through the Art Gallery of Alberta.
