Art Gallery of St. Albert

Julya Hajnoczky's Refugium is the new exhibit on display in the gallery’s main exhibition space. It presents photographs and sculptures that highlight the consequences of industrial human civilization: catastrophic habitat fragmentation and species loss. Hajnoczky’s photographs feature floating islands of plants, fungus, and insects that are suspended in a void. The works direct our gaze to the overlooked life found at our feet. 

Raven’s Tales is artist Rick Wolcott's take on four tales featuring the ever-charismatic trickster and teacher Raven for the new exhibit in the Feature Staircase Gallery. Each carving shares a different aspect of Raven and his influence on the world. Until May 7. Virtual tour with the curator will take place on March 16 at noon. Register via Eventbrite at artgalleryofstalbert.ca.
