Free with Gallery Admission*

Located within exhibition spaces, Conversation with the Artist is an ongoing series that features informal and engaging talks between artists, curators and audience members. Join us as we discuss the works featured in the RBC New Works exhibition ALMA LOUISE VISSCHER: Cathedral Cumulus.

Alma Louise Visscher is a graduate of the University of Alberta MFA program in Drawing/Intermedia and an artist based in Edmonton. Her current work oscillates between drawing, installation and sculpture – with a focus on the use of textiles. Most recently, her research has centered around intermediary spaces, surface architecture and archaic forms/structures. Her last project was a temporary public installation for the Edmonton Arts Council’s Ramble in the Bramble. In September 2014 she will be attending a research residency at the Iceland Textile Centre to create a large-scale kite.

*Please note the exhibition space has a limited capacity.

Held in conjunction with ALMA LOUISE VISSCHER: Cathedral Cumulus.

Presented with the support of the RBC Emerging Artists Project.
