Community Tour of 'Comic Sans' with Chelsea Wong

Join us for the August edition of our Community Tour Series, featuring illustrator Chelsea Wong.

This month we are excited to have local illustrator Chelsea Wong lead a tour of the exhibition Comic Sans. This tour is happening during our monthly free night at the AGA, which happens the last Thursday of the month from 4-7pm.  

You can participate in this free hour-long program both in-person and on Zoom. Registration is recommended for guest attending in person.   

About the speaker: An illustrator from Edmonton, Alberta, Chelsea Wong has a background that features a Diploma for Fine Arts and for Digital Illustration. Since then she has produced work in multiple mediums and specializes in Digital Art and Illustration, producing illustrations for zines, merchandise, and her own self published comic book Jezebel. You can find her work at many Albertan conventions around the year 

About Comic Sans Contemporary Canadian comics are created without limitations of subject matter, without stylistic constraints and sometimes even without words at all. Comic Sans focuses on the limitless artistic side of Canadian comics and celebrates a broad range of approaches to storytelling. Some of the stories in Comic Sans are biographical or autobiographical, some are familiar and others have sprung from the imaginations of their creators. Comics don’t need to be constrained within the square frame of a comic panel and the work in this show expands well beyond it and even well beyond the page. Comic Sans is a celebration of the endlessly creative medium of graphic narratives.    

Comic Sans is organized by the Art Gallery of Alberta and curated by Chris Reyns-Chikuma, University of Alberta and Lindsey Sharman, Art Gallery of Alberta.
