St. Albert Place Visual Arts Council Guild Members 

November 15–December 29, 2018  

The exciting and wide-ranging biennial exhibition, Guilded, showcases works created by members of the St. Albert Place Visual Arts Council (SAPVAC). The exhibit boasts vibrant works from each of the five guilds; St. Albert Potters Guild, Painter’s Guild, Floral Art Society, Quilters’ Guild and Paper Arts Guild 

In 2018 the artists take an intimate look at what’s around them, taking their inspiration from people, places, and locations of personal significance to them. These works focus on the beauty in every day life, both home and away. We can expect to see classic themes such as the splendour of the Sturgeon River and other natural areas, focal St. Albert landmarks and scenes that we know and love, as well as works that express the natural and urban landscapes these artists have recently explored.  

Each artist will share their unique perspective on what’s “around the block”, giving us a glimpse of their neighbourhood, insights from their community, or scenes from their travels.

Reception: Saturday, November 24, 2:30–5 pm 
Free Exhibition Tours: Thursday, November 22, 2018 at 12:05 pm and Thursday December 20, 2018 at 12:05 pm
