Eclectic Resonance: Member’s Exhibition 2010

November 4, 2010 - January 17, 2011

Opening reception: November 4, 2010 at 7:00 pm
Location: Kin Gallery, located at the Heritage Discover Centre in Centre 2000, 11330-106 Street, Grande Prairie.

In this exhibition, which is composed of works created by members of the Art Gallery of Grande Prairie, and chosen for exhibition entirely by the individual creators of the work with no interference whatsoever from the Gallery, we are proud to show a snapshot of some of the most current and active production of visual culture by artists at all levels of their careers working in this region. The Prairie Art gallery believes that art is among the most important components of a society, and as such that the art made in our community is an important component of our community. The works in this exhibition are as diverse and eclectic as the individual artists who have made them, and we hope they represent much of the diversity of the community. Yet each work, being of this place, should resonate both with the place of its creation and with the other works of art created in that place. The harmony that emerges from this range of voices is in itself a way of understanding Grande Prairie and the Peace Region.

The members’ exhibition has been a long and proud tradition for the Art Gallery of Grande Prairie and its members, and like all of the Gallery’s important programs, the members’ exhibition will be transformed by the growth of the organization that is currently underway. This exhibition is a sign that there will always be a place in the Art Gallery of Grande Prairie for unmitigated contact between artists practising in this region and the public audience, but it is also a milestone in that this is the final members’ only exhibition that will be held by the Art Gallery of Grande Prairie for the foreseeable future. It is our goal to reduce barriers between artists, art, and the audience, and as such, future exhibitions of this type will be open to all creators in the community, and no longer restricted to members.

We thank all of the artists who have so generously loaned their works to this exhibition, and we also thank the City of Grande Prairie and the Heritage Discovery Centre for the loan of this space in our time of need.
