AFP Edmonton Annual General Meeting”

We would like to invite all members and guests out for our 27th Annual General Meeting.  This year, we will kick off our AGM with a private guided tour of the Art Gallery of Alberta. We will then convene in one of the private event venues for the Annual General Meeting where drinks and Hors D’oeuvres will be served.

 

The Art Gallery of Alberta is a centre of excellence for the visual arts in Western Canada, connecting people, art and ideas. The AGA is focused on the development and presentation of original exhibitions of contemporary and historical art from Alberta, Canada and around the world. Founded in 1924, the Art Gallery of Alberta maintains a collection of over 6,000 objects and is the oldest cultural institution in Alberta and the only museum in the province solely dedicated to the exhibition and preservation of art and visual culture. The AGA recently underwent a major re-building project. Designed by Los Angeles architect Randall Stout, the 85,000 sq foot (7,900 sq metres) new AGA opened to the public on January 31, 2010. The new Gallery features three floors of premiere exhibition space; the City of Edmonton Terrace; the Singhmar Centre for Art Education; Zinc restaurant; Shop AGA; Ledcor Theatre and an Art Rental and Sales Gallery.

Inspired by Edmonton’s geography, Los Angeles based architect Randall Stout engaged the duality of Edmonton’s urban grid layout juxtaposed against the winding contours of the North Saskatchewan River to create the design for the new Art Gallery of Alberta. The swirling forms of the ‘Aurora Borealis’ weave between the interior and exterior of the structure. Selected to reflect Edmonton’s dramatic weather patterns, the steel, glass and zinc create a dynamic quality that allows the building to transform along with its natural surroundings.
