“In the Moment” Art Exhibit

The Hanna Library is excited to host the “In the Moment” art exhibition this summer, courtesy of The Alberta Foundation for the Arts and The Esplande.
This is a great opportunity to view some amazing art from Alberta artists – for free! This exhibit is available for free public viewing during regular Library hours.

In the Moment
is an exhibition featuring the works of twelve Alberta photographers - from 1977 to 2010. The seventeen silver gelatine black-and-white photographs from the Alberta Foundation for the Arts’ permanent collection are the work of artists John Fukushima, Douglas Curran, Orest Semchishen, Eleanor Lazare, Harry Palmer, Randall Adams, Sima Khorrami, Tim Van Horn, Craig Richards, Harry Palmer, George Webber, and Gerald Hewko. These portraits capture a variety of captivating characters situated in intriguing environments from all over the world. Some have been taken right here in Alberta’s backyard, and some were documented as far away as Thailand and Guatemala. “Photographs engage us optically, neurologically, intellectually, emotionally, viscerally and physically.” The people documented in these works were captured in a moment: the two young women laughing in Eleanor Lazare’s Jeannie Dominey & Katherine Doreshenko #2, or the women reading the paper in Randall Adams’s Jeannie – Silk Hat Restaurant. They remind us of our own moments, and to take time to reminisce and celebrate the human spirit. 
This display was curated by Xanthe Isbister, organized by TREX Southeast & the Esplanade Arts and Heritage Centre.
