It's a busy stressful time of year: students are writing papers and exams, the rest of us are buying Christmas presents and rushing from party to party. Mehdi Pouragha is playing oud this week at the University of Calgary as part of "stressless week."
Along with the Glenbow museum turning 50 this year, the Nickle Galleries at the University of Calgary will also celebrate 50 years of art. Curated by Mary-Beth Laviolette, Generations: 50 years of art at the University of Calgary and Beyond features artists who have either completed a degree or have been instructors in the department of art at the U of C.
