Each year for the past four, the Galt Musuem & Archives has presented an exhibit of 3 dimensional art work created by artists in Southern Alberta. The exhibit is a part of the local Art Walk scene and is free to visitors.
All the exhibits featured a surprising variety of media, style, colours, size and genre and 2011 will follow that trend. This year artists have submitted wheel thrown and handbuilt clay pieces, carved and turned art made from exotic woods, a copper and wrought iron bird bath, mixed media pieces that incorporate clay and found objects, acrylics and wood, textiles and jewellry, and a cardboard and tape space ship.
The quality and depth of these pieces will engage and challenge visitors as they view 3 Dimensions. Visitors will explore artwork stimulated by diverse subjects such as a child's pet gecko, the health care system in Alberta, and dance.
Artists who create 3 dimensional art will provide demonstrations such as wood turning on a lathe with the Chinook Wood Turners Guild, wheel thrown pottery by members of the Oldman River Potters Association, and handbuilt monsters by Andrew Martin.
3 Dimensions exhibit and demonstrations are a wonderful way to celebrate and enjoy Southern Alberta's art community.
