As well as tonight’s opening at Harcourt House, we’re looking forward to a couple of other local projects this weekend:
Tomorrow at The Drawing Room, at 7 Sergio Serrano presents Variations, “inspired by celestial cartography and medieval philosophy.” This work is related to the wonderful, limited edition scarf he designed for our Circle of Friends. Read more on Facebook.
On Saturday, final projects from the University of Alberta’s interdisciplinary course, “Creating Interactive Interfaces for the Fine Arts and Humanities” (taught by Scott Smallwood) will be up in the Fine Arts Building.
Next week there’s more to look forward to: MFAs Joseph Doherty and Alexandra Emberly open their final shows at the University on Thursday, and on Friday past Latitude 53 exhibitor and newly-minted board member Brenda Draney is opening a show in the New Works Gallery at the Art Gallery of Alberta, with a talk at 6:00.

"Chuck Goes to the Movies", from Chuck Samuels’ Before Photography—in the Main Space until December 21.
Shyra De Souza speaking about her work at the opening reception for Phantom Limb on Friday.
Shyra De Souza’s Phantom Limb installed in the ProjEx Room. Join us tonight for the opening reception from 7!
Chuck Samuels gave a great talk at the opening of his show, Before Photography last week. He took us through much of his career as a photographer, which forms the subtext for his show. In particular, since we are celebrating our 40th anniversary, he talked about how his career has grown up with Latitude 53—he’s shown several projects in Edmonton at our various gallery locations.
Join us for another opening and a talk by Calgary artist Shyra De Souza tomorrow at 7:00!
