Theresa Eisenbarth: Walking the Flats
JUNE 15, 2020 - AUGUST 15, 2020
A sentimental journey, expertly expressed through soft brush strokes of vibrant colours creates a new body of work by local artist Theresa Eisenbarth. These vivid paintings are inspired by Eisenbarth’s memories of walking around the neighbourhood of her childhood home on Dominion Street. Familiar Medicine Hat landmarks such as Mackenzie Drug Store, Lion’s Park gates, and the Korner Konvenience visually narrate a sense of place and nostalgic connection to “home”.
Mireille Perron: Anatomy of a Glass Menagerie: Alta-Glass
JUNE 15, 2020 - AUGUST 15, 2020
The Anatomy of a Glass Menagerie: Altaglass is a solo exhibition of works by Calgary based artist Mireille Perron. One hundred and thirteen delicately blown glass figurines juxtaposed against deep blue cyanotype monoprints create a body of work founded on the artist’s curiosity of craft practices and their histories. These works were inspired by Perron’s residency at Medalta’s International Artist in Residence Program, which provided an opportunity for Perron to explore and research the Altaglass collection at Hycroft China Ltd. These objects became the foundation of this body of work, as each of the Altaglass glass figurines became the subjects for her cyanotype prints; a monoprint generated by UV light exposure.

From daguerreotypes to digital, we have been recording the people, places, and activities of the world around us.
