Money Zoo: Fantastic Beasts in the History of Money Nickle Galleries, Calgary, until July 29 Elephants, lions and octopi-animals adorn ancient coins in this exhibition from Nickle Galleries' Numismatic Collection. Examining the special relationship between humans and animals through the lens of currency, Money Zoo discusses how the use of animals as trade items or imagery on currency reveal their cultural significance and value to a society-for example, beaver pelts were a highly valued item during the fur trade and were later adopted for use on Canadian coinage.

BRIAN FLYNN: NO PHOTOS… NO RECORDINGS… NO NOTES… Nickle Galleries, Calgary. To Apr 9 The sombre mood of Brian Flynn’s recent paintings expresses his partial and puzzled witness, as a child, to the Troubles in Northern Ireland. As an artist in middle age, he has expanded his understanding through research into his family history and guarded interviews with members of the resistance.
