RBC Work Room is an initiative that supports the development of local, contemporary art projects. In this studio-like working space, Edmonton artists conceive and produce artworks onsite, resulting in a fully realized exhibition.
This fourth installment features painter Samantha Walrod working in residence for six weeks. The artist will create a series of works on paper and canvas, painting still lives and animal forms. Her exhibition, Vanitas, will explore ideas of life and loss.
RBC Work Room is an extension of the RBC New Works Gallery, which features new artworks by Alberta artists. This project series continues the Art Gallery of Alberta’s commitment to supporting the work of Alberta artists.
Organized by the Art Gallery of Alberta and presented as a part of the Poole Centre of Design. Supported by Artist Patron Marie Gordon.
