The Royal Canadian Academy of Arts (RCA) was founded in 1880 to honour canadian artists. Academicians to the RCA represent excellence across a broad range of artistic disciplines, from painters, sculptors and architects, to filmmakers, photographers, designers and craft artists. Today, the RCA has members from across the country, who are recognized for having made significant contributions to the arts and culture of the nation.

Each year the RCA invites new Academicians to join at its Annual General Assembly, which in 2014, will be held in Edmonton. the exhibition REGIONS OF DISTINCTION presented at the Enterprise Square Galleries showcases work by the 16 living Edmonton-area artists and architects who have been inducted into the RCA, and recognizes their importance to our city’s artistic community.

How we interpret a place depends on our relationship to the space. We each have our own connection to it and see things that exists that others do not. Identifying the simple elements that connect individuals to place, are the resulting work that makes up the 35 exhibition.

35 is a collection of images collected by Leduc Composite High School’s Film & Media Studies 35 students. FMS 35 is an advanced level course of photography, video and sound, focusing on exhibiting high school students’ work outside of their community.

Presented in partnership with Leduc Composite High School.
