Dreaming With 'My Great Mother'... Art Exhibition Opening Reception a success!
The City of Lacombe and the Lacombe Art Collection Committee were thrilled to host three First Nations women at the opening reception of their art exhibition on January 28 at the Lacombe Memorial Centre. Around 130 art lovers came out to meet the artists and to check out their works.
Dreaming With 'My Great Mother'... featured the works of Heather Shillinglaw, Carla Rae Taylor and Camille Louis. Each artist shared their experiences of learning from their grandmothers and mother earth as they created pieces that expressed their innermost thoughts.
It truly was a heart warming experience for everyone who came to see the works, and talk to the artists about what they had created. The creative styles of the three artists are unique, and convey different emotions as viewers move from piece to piece.
This travelling exhibition was curated by The Alberta Foundation for the Arts and the Art Gallery of Alberta, and funded through sponsorship provided by Syncrude. It will be on display in the corridor leading to Anna Maria's Cafe in the LMC until February 24, 2016.
