Effective Tuesday March 17, Nickle Galleries is now closed to the public and Nickle at Noon programs have been cancelled.

Nickle Galleries, University of Calgary and Contemporary Calgary are pleased to invite you to the first of a series of public programs organized in support of the Everywhere We Are art exhibition.

Sacred Expression in Contemporary Art is a program that will appeal to individuals interested in the role and influence of art in the Christian tradition and are curious about how contemporary art contributes to the tradition of sacred expression. Drawing on selected works in the Everywhere We Are exhibition, this exploration of sacredness will feature speakers from St. Mary’s University, and the University of Calgary’s Department of Art and the Faith and Spirituality Centre on campus.

Refreshments at 5:30 pm, Program 6:00 – 8:00 pm
