Women of the AGA: Celebrating 100 Years of Achievement

Violet Owen, Butterfly (detail), 1990. Oil on canvas. Art Gallery of Alberta Collection, gift of the artist in appreciation of Lelde Muelenbachs and the Art Associates for "Art For All," 1990. 

Register for public viewings: 

April 13, 11am-1pm     May 25, 11am-1pm

This exhibition is offsite at YWCA.

In honour of the Art Gallery of Alberta’s 100th anniversary, this YWCA showcase celebrates Alberta women artists represented in the AGA’s Collection. The exhibition includes trail-blazing artists who have been at the forefront of stylistic and material investigations—such as Marion Nicoll, one of the province’s first abstract painters, and Mary Shannon Will, whose paintings build upon computer-manipulated images—and others who have used their art to address environmental and colonial injustices, including Lyndal Osborne and Jane Ash Poitras. Several of these women have also been a pivotal influence on younger generations through both mentorship and post-secondary appointments.

Women of the AGA: Celebrating 100 Years of Achievement is a part of the AGA’s 100th anniversary programming, which includes a series of on-site and satellite exhibitions celebrating Alberta art and artists from the Collection, as well as an August birthday bash.

Organized by the Art Gallery of Alberta, presented by YWCA Edmonton and curated by Danielle Siemens.
