  • Includes 200 illustrations and artist biographies.

    Just as Canada is often overlooked or undervalued within the international art world, the province of Alberta has struggled against being overlooked within the national context, despite its rich art history and vigorous and ever-changing art scene. Alberta Art and Artists, by former vice-president of collections at the Glenbow Museum Patricia Ainslie and art critic and journalist Mary-Beth Laviolette, provides a comprehensive visual record of the historical, modern, and contemporary art scene in Alberta.

    Throughout three sections, Ainslie and Laviolette provide introductions to the art they describe, explaining beginnings and development of movements, art schools, sketch clubs, galleries, and artist-run centres; the significance of artists and teachers to those institutions and movements; and the importance of social and political context to all artistic events. Also included in this fantastic volume are the biographies of each of the artists showcased.
