Retinal Circus

February 1–March 31
Nina Haggerty Centre
Retinal Circus | Nina Haggerty Centre at Art Gallery of St. Albert

The Nina Haggerty Centre for the Arts in Edmonton provides a supportive environment where people with developmental disabilities are empowered to become practicing artists. Supported by a team of professional, enthusiastic artists, over 200 members of the collective create art at their own pace and are encouraged to find their unique voice.

Retinal Circus features an eclectic array of artists working across a variety of mediums: painting, ceramics, fibre arts, printmaking, and more. Subject matters are far-ranging and this optically stimulating exhibit broadcasts loudly and proudly that all community members benefit from having full access to the arts.

Opening Reception: Saturday, February 3, 2:30–5pm

During the 2017-18 Gallery barrier-free renovation, please visit us at our temporary location at #100, 6D Perron Street until September 2018.

Registration now open!

Offering art classes throughout the year, AGSA provides opportunities for children, youth, and adults to get creative in professional art studios. With many returning favourites and a few exciting new programs – don’t forget to secure your spot early.

Register online, by phone 780-460-4310, or in person at 19 Perron Street


Art Nook: Sense of Place–Collaborative Book Project

September 5 – 28

Contribute to our collaborative book project and create pages that define your sense of place. The Gallery is asking participants of all ages and experience levels to send us small drawings, prints, poems, paintings, photos, or collages. We will be taking all of the works that are sent for this project, and binding them into a series of small hand-made art books, which will be exhibited in the Gallery throughout Alberta Culture Days 2019. Why not create yours in the Gallery’s Art Nook? Using a variety of two-dimensional media, create a 5×7” piece to contribute to the project.

All materials provided.

Cost: Free (donations welcome)

Time: Gallery Hours
