“Sculpture is not only a visual art, but an art of materials, weights and measures. Beneath the final surface of each crania sculpture, there are various circumferential layers of formed materials. This may be sensed through the subtle variations in the final form, surface colouration and weight.”  Robin Peck, 2018
 
The SAAG is proud to be a partner of the University of Lethbridge’s Art NOW lecture series. Encompassing presentations by artists, curators, art historians, filmmakers, and gallerists, Art NOW is one of the largest and longest running programs in the country, having hosted more than 700 presenters over more than three decades.
 
Supported by the Canada Council and the Alberta Foundation for the Arts, the course offers presentations by artists, art historians, curators, theorists and critics. Up to three different speakers per week, representing a wide range of contemporary practices, discuss their art, ideas, working methods, and issues in the visual arts. With about 30 speakers per semester, Art NOW is an amazing resource for anyone interested in contemporary art. Best of all, the lectures are open to the public - everyone is welcome!
 
The SAAG contributes to the diverse spectrum of presenters by recommending our roster of contemporary practicing artists as guests.
