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
