This year I have the chance to curate a third season of impeccable artworks for the Multicultural Centre Public Art Gallery in Stony Plain Alberta. We are going strong in 2018 with the influential international work of artist Susanna Barlow, and our International Women's Day celebratory exhibit HerWORK 2018 featuring Angela Marino, Tamires Para, Corwyn and Deltra Prowney.
Currently we are presenting our third annual Truth and Reconciliation program exhibit. This year we are working with artists from across Canada to explore the meaning of Reconcilation. Five contemporary first nations and metis artists come together in the gallery to form a multidisciplinary exploration of creative power for healing. Special thanks to Mike Alexander, Nicco Williams, Shawn Adams for providing their recent work as well as to Jane Ash Poitras and Robert van Schaik who contributed the pieces to the MCPAG Permanent Collection which are included in this show.

Multicultural Centre Public Art Gallery - 2015
As the Curator for the Multicultural Heritage Centre Public Art Gallery in Stony Plain I had the chance to work with a great variety of artists in 2015 to produce 9 exhibits in our main exhibition space.
The Works Art & Design Festival - 2015
As the Curatorial Supervisor with the Works Art & Design Festival this summer I had the opportunity to bring forward proposals for several artists including Megan Warkentin and Susanna Barlow. Working with the theme of 'Making Space' I was able to connect with individual artists I knew to be engaged in work which responded to space in a various ways. Bringing together artists and exhibition spaces we were able to produce this one of a kind arts festival.
