7: Professional Native Indian Artists Inc.
Art Gallery of Alberta, 2 Sir Winston Churchill Square, (Edmonton)
March 5 – July 3

Art Corner goes to Edmonton this month in search of the Professional Native Indian Artists Incorporation. Commonly referred to as the Indian Group of Seven, this exhibition features the works of a significant alliance of artists in the 1970s who sought to promote contemporary First Nations art in Canada. Serving as entrepreneurs and visionaries, the group would influence and guide the next generation of First Nations artists while helping to change and redefine perceptions of their art and culture that were often misunderstood.

Many of these artists emerged from the debilitating Residential School System, their success only attests to what must have been a fiercely strong sense of self. The force behind the group’s formation in 1973 was artist Daphne Odjig, a remarkable woman and a pioneer in her field. Standing with her are group members: Alex Janvier, Norval Morrisseau, Jackson Beardy, Eddy Cobiness, Carl Ray and Joseph Sanchez.

“Invisible Mother”
Marigold Santos
Stride Gallery, 1006 Macleod Trail SE
March 18 – May 13, Reception March 18, 2016 @ 8 p.m.

Marigold Santos creates with delicate skill of hand, bringing us haunting, nightmarish imagery. Her process is deep rooted in her own cultural ancestry with a multi-faceted character, Asuang. From Filipino folklore, this shape-shifting monster is describes as ghoulish and demonic. Santos has carried images of this fantastical creature throughout her past work and once more draws inspiration from it for this multi-media drawing and sculpture installation, “Invisible Mother.”

JUNO Tour of Canadian Art
Glenbow Museum, 130 – 9 Ave. SE
March 19 – September 18

The excitement of the JUNO Awards in Calgary has spread to the Glenbow Museum. Pairing art and music in an exhibition, the museum has invited past Juno winners and nominees to browse the vast collection and select a work that speaks to them, linking two creative minds, influence and taste. It also functions as a wonderful excuse to free inspiring artworks from storage and into the public view. Videos will be presented with the artwork in which the musicians discuss their selection.
