Hello and welcome, my name is Lucille.
I am a Curator, Arts Administrator and Visual Artist practicing in Edmonton, Alberta (Canada). In 2012 I graduated from the University of Alberta with my Bachelor of Art and Design. After finishing my degree I spent some time working part time in my studio and full time for the Legislative Assembly of Alberta, before deciding to redirect myself into a full time commitment to the arts.
I have just completed the Arts and Cultural Management Diploma Program at MacEwan University, this two year program is a comprehensive academic foundation in both for profit and non-profit arts administration. After completing my BFA I found something missing from my professional capacities, participating in the AACM program has given my the comprehensive qualifications I required to build my career and in building my small business. More importantly I have been able to make some fantastic connections with incredibly intelligent, passionate and creative arts administrators working across the cultural sector to build a better society.
In addition to my studies I work in the cultural field with several organizations, volunteer throughout the Edmonton visual arts community, sit on several Executive Boards for local charitable non profits, and maintain my own visual arts practice.
Whats Happening ...
This summer I am working with artist Brandon Atkinson to exhibit his most recent collection of drawings. These amazing pieces are incredibly detailed, with intricate narratives built into the form of an animal or warrior. The show runs from June through August and all works featured are for sale.
In my studio
Toying with abstractions on landscape photos. I want to print these on self adhesive vinyl at 15' tall and 52" wide then adhere my acrylic skins onto the vinyl. This would likely be a one time only installation but I can't resist finally bumping my scale up and move away from restrictions of stretchers and/or panel board.
The Multicultural Heritage Centre Museum
This September and October I had the pleasure of working with the Museum to produces several exhibits and assist with redesigning some of the way-finding signage. Researching the History of the Town and of the Centre I have learned a significant amount about this great community, this information was exciting to present with historical images and artifacts. More information and images of the show will be coming soon.
