In late 2015, curators Peta Rake and Kristy Trinier travelled extensively across Alberta for studio visits. Then, in summer 2016 they invited artists to collaborative workshops in Banff. This informed the Alberta Biennial’s 2017 theme and title for the time being: what it means to be in between spaces and times. This 10th Alberta Biennial teams the Art Gallery of Alberta with Banff Centre for the Arts and Creativity’s Walter Phillips Gallery to bring viewers never-before exhibited works by 24 Alberta artists, showing concurrently in both locations. From the Curator’s statement: for the time being: 2017 Alberta Biennial of Contemporary Art approaches the political implications of self-organization and wayfinding in new and unknown territories, that may or may not be visible. Spread over two sites—here at the Art Gallery of Alberta and at Banff Centre’s Walter Phillips Gallery—the Alberta Biennial investigates the distribution of wealth and labour through the provisional practices of 24 artists from across the province. In conversation with the artists, the curators acknowledged common threads that emerged relating to interstitiality and site—albeit physical or virtual—and a preoccupation with language and echoes, that reflect the way in which artists see reverberations within larger discourses in their communities. Exhibit runs from May 27 to Sept. 10 at the Art Gallery of Alberta, 2 Sir Winston Churchill Square, Edmonton. Telephone: 780-422-6223. Summer hours: Tuesday and Friday: 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.,; Wednesday and Thursday: 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.; Saturday and Sunday: 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Monday: closed.

Sam Knopp’s (Irma) functional ceramics subvert expectations and reference her recent geographic transition.The exhibitionRelocationsreferences her recent move back to Alberta after living and studying in Vancouver for the past seven years. This move from an urban to a rural setting has brought questions to the forefront. How do we find common ground or perhaps embrace difference and reconcile our ideas and values about the handmade and mass-produced?Moving between the spectrums of utility and aesthetics, this exhibition features functional pots that are curious explorations of materiality, process and presentation. References to synthetic or commonplace materials such as concrete, packing foam, steel, neon hues and carpet underlay, force the viewer to question the relationship between handmade objects and our domestic space. Through these contradictions where the maker’s hand and the materiality of ceramics is simultaneously celebrated and subverted, Sam is reconciling these seemingly disparate ideologies. Exhibition runs from July 22 to September 2.Reception: Saturday, July 22 from 2 to 4 p.m. Alberta Craft Discovery Gallery, 10186 - 106 Street, Edmonton. www.albertacraft.ab.ca
Ken Lumbis’ (Grande Prairie) ceramic sculptures highlight intriguing effects achieved through pit firing. Artist’s statement: The process of pit-fired pottery process intrigues me, not only because of possibilities in developing colour but also because it can be done in one’s backyard. My chosen direction is different from more frequently seen pit-fired pottery, in that I’ve pursued a more painterly practice using ceramic panels. The grogged sculpture clay used in my work allows different patterns to develop as the fire plays across the clay, creating interesting effects. By adding various surface materials prior to pit firing, I develop archeological and geological textures across my ceramic landscapes. While the finished surfaces are abstract in nature, they reflect the micro and macro level observations that one can make in nature. Pit firing represents an intriguing exploration of possibilities. Has the piece survived the firing process? More importantly, has the pit fire produced the anticipated effects? It is always exciting to uncover a piece from the ashes.Exhibition runs from July 22 to September 2.Reception: Saturday, July 22 from 2 to 4 p.m. Alberta Craft Discovery Gallery, 10186 - 106 Street, Edmonton. www.albertacraft.ab.ca
