Sculptures in the Window!
For the first time, the Sculptors’ Association of Alberta (SAA) will be participating in the Whyte Avenue Art Walk with a collective of 19 artists selling their work from July 2 to August 1.
“For years we have looked for a way to participate, but setting up and tearing down daily on the street was impossible for a group like ours” said SAA President Ellie Shuster. “Moving the walk indoors was a game-changer. Who’d have thought Covid would be kind to us!”
The front window of the Army and Navy store will showcase more than 100 sculptures, representing a broad spectrum of mediums and styles, including stone, clay, metal, fibre, wood, cold-cast bronze and more. Visitors will meet and interact with different artists each day. In addition to the work for sale, there will be a draw for prizes every week.
About the Sculptors’ Association of Alberta
SAA’s vision is of a healthy, growing community of sculptors across Alberta who support and learn from each other, exhibit together, collaborate with other organizations, and inspire Albertans of all ages through interaction with sculpture and the artists who create it.
Established in 1986, the Sculptors’ Association of Alberta (SAA) has grown from six founding members to a dynamic organization which influences the artistic landscape of Alberta. Membership is province-wide and open to anyone with an interest in sculpture: professional, amateur and student. The association is run by a seven-member board of directors and has over 60 member artists province-wide.
Window Gallery: Night of Artists
Look for a gallery of artists featured in the long windows of the Army & Navy. We are proud to host the NOA. We missed many festivals and art events for the past two years so it is our pleasure to partner with Phil Alain and the amazing artists he represents. Their art will fill the windows until August 1 and you may view it all week long. Even when we are closed during the weekdays; art will light up our windows. It also your chance to pick-up the latest copy of the stunning NOA magazine. It is both a collectors’ item and a who’s who in our local art scene. #shoplocal and #BuyArtYouLove at #yegartwalk.
