Alberta Rose Williams: Artist Talk

October 14, 2021 12:00 pm

Event Details

Calgary-based artist, Alberta Rose Williams will talk about her recent art work and exhibitions.

Born and raised in Treaty 7 Territory in Calgary, AB, near the Bearspaw, Chiniki and Wesley bands of the Nakoda nation, Alberta Rose Williams finds passion in art, food, politics and social issues. These interests are expressed through any medium as well as engagement with community organizations and events. As an Inuvialuit person growing up outside of her traditional territory, she has often felt a sense of displacement; but found a connection to her culture through her late mother and traditional practices. Alberta graduated from ACAD in the spring of 2016 with a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Art (with distinction), majoring in painting and then spent 18 months at Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity as a prepatorial practicum in the Walter Phillips Gallery. Currently, she is based in Calgary and is a southern liaison for the Inuit Art Foundation, studio assistant, and artist.

This will be a free, ONLINE event.
