An Edmonton artist, Madeleine Arnett “thought it was a wonderful opportunity” when she first heard about SHOWCASE: small spaces/big ideas. “I loved that it was designed to match the building, and that it was a constellation of small exhibition spaces open to all.”
A frequent participant, Madeleine loves the eclecticism of each booking period. “You never know what to expect: paintings, sculptures, baskets, books or paper art. Since we pick our case and what we want to show, it’s random. Yet, sometimes I see it, and it looks perfectly curated!”
Madeleine recalls her first participation in April 2016. “I posted on Facebook: ‘At last! My work is on the walls of the AGA!’ Showcase makes me feel validated as an artist in Alberta, by giving me and other artists an opportunity to showcase our art in one of the top galleries in the world.”
