Damian Moppett: Untitled Abstract Drawing in Space
March 17, 2020 - December 31, 2024    
11:00 am
The Art Gallery of Alberta commissioned Canadian artist Damian Moppett to create an installation for long-term display in the AGA Atrium. This work is intended to be a scaled-up sketch that occupies the space in the AGA's atrium as if it was drawn in the air. Shapes and lines are fabricated out of cut aluminum plate, which have been arranged and painted to recreate a 'fast' artistic abstract drawing. Moppett's recent large-scale public sculptures have all been centered around the idea of making a relatively 'quick' drawing or painting into a large three-dimensional sculpture while still trying to convey the immediate graphic simplicity of the original drawing or painting. This work will maintain the qualities of a sketch with drawing materials and blow them up to architectural or larger-than-life scale.

The last total solar eclipse experienced in Alberta was in 1979.  This month’s solar eclipse will be near total for residents of British Columbia, but even here in Alberta, the eclipse will be discernable with 20% of the sun covered by the moon.

Watching a solar eclipse with the naked eye is extremely dangeous!  You risk losing your sight, for staring at the sun for even a few minutes without protective equipment can cause retinal burns (solar retinopathy).

Take a few simple precautions and you can watch this celestial event safely.

After last weekend’s sugar rush (how many Easter eggs did you eat?), this weekend, consider some relaxing, moving music.  Or browse a market that is new-to-you.  Plus, there are two uplifiting art exhibitions opening this weekend, giving you a full cultural medley to make your weekend great.

Sunday is St. Patrick’s Day.  St. Patrick is Ireland’s patron saint, and there are many interesting facts and myths about the former slave turned missionary, including his banishing snakes from Ireland. 

But here is one you might not have heard: No one is quite sure where St. Patrick is buried.  Historians know of a few likely places, but there is no evidence for one location over the other.

St. Patrick has been inspiring annual celebrations since 1631, when the Roman Catholic Church established his Feast Day.

From the long list of St. Patrick’s Day-related events, we can tell that Edmonton plans to make an entire weekend of the event.

For the uninitiated, Edmonton offers some of best pub and brew experiences in all of Western Canada.  Yes, we are not known for being Celtic Warriors with a love of rugby and clover leaves, but we know our beer and how to ring in St. Patty’s Day.  As such, our publisher shared his thoughts on five great places for a pint, this year.

From soulful rhythms to sweet treats on Whyte Avenue we’ve got you covered this weekend with great events happening in and around Edmonton!  1. Souls in…
