On its base level the portrait can convey the likeness of a person in physicality, personality, or even mood. From traditional beading by Sharon Rose Kootenay Cherweniuk to Micah Adams’ intricate metal work involving the delicate manipulation and reconstruction of coins from around the world, this exhibition delves into the broader definition of the portrait. Portraits features the work of 35 Fine Craft artists from across Canada, emerging to established, who share stories of family, culture, place, being, and belonging through their work. From quirky self-portraits to special memories of loved ones and iconic personalities, this exhibition is as diverse as each person or place that is depicted. Portraits explores issues around love, acceptance, mental health, self-expression, to that of the environment, of death, and celebrating life and all that it holds. Not to be missed, this exhibition will be presented in both Edmonton and Calgary in 2019 and surely connect with all who visit. Runs from January 26 to April 27.
