Staff Picks

Staff Picks

Each month, staff from all areas of the AGA will share their “must haves” from Shop AGA with you.


The Indie Rock Coloring Book

“This is by far the coolest coloring book I have ever seen. It combines my interest of music, supporting charity and coloring! Each page is dedicated to an indie rock band, in which you choose the color scheme! All royalties from this book will go to a charity of the bands choice. Pull out your crayons, because you are going to want to fill every page of this book!”

Kaelyn, Education/Shop AGA

This Is Art Magnet

“What defines art? Well, I don’t know, but this magnet is giving it a try. ”

- Karin, Shop AGA

K is for Knifeball

“You’re standing in a dark alley, a red rubber ball in your hand. A large, sharp, serrated knife is attached to the ball with roughly cut duct tape. Suddenly, you hear footsteps approaching. You know this is it, all of the things you have done are about to catch up to you. Realizing that you are about to be caught, you take your guidebook from your hipster shoulder bag, swish your bangs over to one side, and thrust it out in front of you.

“I swear officer, I was only trying to learn the alphabet! I am a kinaesthetic learner and need physical activity to learn!”

The police officer approaches, looks down at you from far above your tiny five-year-old head. “Son, this book is not for children. Where did you get it?”

“My mom told me it was for grown-ups and I was not allowed to read it, but the ball on the front looked just like the one I play with in gym class so I thought she was just trying to keep it all to herself. I read it, and everything it told me to do sounded so fun, I just had to try it!”

The police officer lets out a sigh. “You are under arrest, kid.”

The last thing you see is your Knifeball flying through the air towards him. The last thing you hear is a scream.

WARNING: KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN.”

- Kara, Guest Services

Scratch Pads

“Do you have a creative itch? Then Scratch pads are for you! These three journals encourage you to create your own design for the cover. Scratch the silver ink away to reveal the neon colors underneath! That should satisfy your itch!”

- Kaelyn, Education/ Shop AGA

Little Paper Planes

“Things I’ve learned about paper airplanes from this book:
They are classy, hilarious, experimental, conceptual, confusing and on top of everything, the greatest new art form. ”

- Jessica, Guest Services

Ball of Whacks

“A person can get lost in creating all sorts of patterns and sculptures with these magnetic pieces. The other day Kara and I made a spaceship and personally, I think it’s pretty awesome. I may be biased though.”

- Karin, Shop AGA

Wooden Coaster Cubes

“Dear makers of Jenga,
I never had any fun with the game because I just wanted to use the blocks for building awesome things. I’m sorry to tell you this, but now I found something that will let me do just that AND hold my cup of tea.

Sincerely,
Coaster Cube”

- Jessica, Guest Services

Pattern Box 100 Postcards

“Who doesn’t love design from New York City? This inspiring set of 100 postcards features designs by 10 fabulous designers; curated by The Textile Art Center in New York City. I would frame all 100 if I had enough wall space to hang them. My personal favourite – Victoria Garcia’s floral patterns and organic inspirations.”

- Linnea, Shop AGA

Building a Legacy: Edmonton’s Architectural History

“I like this book because it makes me appreciate the history Edmonton has to offer. From the Ice Age to the fur traders to today, this book breaks down the story of Edmonton’s growth as a city. It’s an informative yet interesting read that’s sure to leave you saying “I heart YEG!”

- Linnea, Shop AGA
