  • Buttoneers Annual President’s Button Competition
    All day
    March 7, 2019

    2019 President's Button Competition Poster3-01

    President Doz in partnership with the AUArts SA Buttoneers has created the annual President’s Button Competition.

    The selected winner will be awarded 500$!

    The buttons will be made and distributed on or before the AUArts grad show. The winning design will be proudly worn, displayed, and given away at other prominent events the President hosts or attends over the next 6 months. The deadline for submissions is March 7, 2019. Please submit all designs to AUArts Buttoneer Director Alexia Mitchell (alexia.mitchell@acad.ca).

    Considerations for the design are as follows:

    • Promotes AUArts (Alberta University of the Arts)
    • Promotes Arts, Culture, Craft, and Design
    • Activist quality to it (We want to show art is of value to the province!)
    • Connects AUArts to Alberta and/or Calgary

    Digital templates can be found here: https://www.sixcentpress.com/_files/pdf/2_25_inch_template.pdf but if there are any questions I am happy to assist in formatting or answering any other questions anyone may have.

    Thanks so much!

    The Marion Nicoll Gallery (MNG) Main Space Presents:
    Jasmine Whiteley-Steel – An attempt to move past an avoidance of vulnerability

    Exhibition Runs: February 26 – March 8, 2019
    Reception: Thursday, March 7, 6 pm – 8 pm
    Main Mall at the Alberta University of the Arts (formerly the Alberta College of Art + Design)

    Standing in a home

    Compared to in a graveyard

    At a funeral dated prior to our deaths,

    Follow the instructions

    And let go of your own dead flowers

    Let them pass into memory

    Even though we are afraid

    Poised to run, sensing danger of oncoming thoughts

    Language capacitating our dread

    Fear telling us to listen

    Dread telling us to read closer to see dead

    Losing that which we are close to

    Bringing forth perpetuating anxieties, but also hopes

    Be witness to your own.

    Jasmine Whiteley-Steel is a Calgary based artist working through thoughts on the strengths of human vulnerability and how we cope with and react to feeling dread. They are interdisciplinary in their work, using jewelry, drawing, photography, text and performance to explore their interests. They have shown work solo and in groups at spaces in Calgary, and alongside visual art is looking to expand into poetry and published writings. Jasmine has participated on multiple juries, in the mental health residency: Hear/d through ACAD in 2018, and is currently involved in an internship with The New Gallery in Calgary.

    The Marion Nicoll Gallery (MNG) Main Space Presents:
    Dirty Douks – Spirrrit Wrrrestlerrrs

    Exhibition Runs: March 11 – 22, 2019
    Reception: March 14, 2019 6 pm – 8 pm
    Main Mall at the Alberta University of the Arts (formerly the Alberta College of Art + Design)

    Artist’s Statement & Bio:

    Dirty Douks negotiates the parallels within their queer and Doukhobor identities as resistive. Clumsy translations, tender dialogues and bright pink beet stains attempt to find the in-between of these identities. Using knowledge well known and unknown, Dirty Douks examines simultaneously the recalibration of history as well as the futility (or failure) of the passing on of generational history. Dirty Douks fumbles through the history of actions, failing to properly translate or neatly fit their queer bodies within the framework of Doukhobor(ness). Through the investigation of Doukhobor history and generational trauma within the lense of queerness and a tilted perspective, Dirty Douks creates an emotionally informed recalibration and reformation of Doukhobor history.

    Dirty Douks is a collaboration between Alexa Bunnell and Skylar Eyre, both of Doukhobor descent, based on Treaty 7 Territory. Dirty Douks is primarily concerned with the intersection of queerness and Doukhobor identity, manifesting itself through performative works, video and photo.

    The Marion Nicoll Gallery (MNG) LRT Space presents:
    Robyn Mah – Tensions

    Exhibition Runs: February 18 – March 15, 2019
    Reception: Thursday, March 14, 6 pm – 8 pm
    Main Mall at the Alberta University of the Arts (formerly the Alberta College of Art + Design)

    Join us Thursday, March 14th in the AUarts Main Mall for the opening reception from 6 – 8 pm. A bar will be on site!

    Artist’s Statement & Bio:

    Indulging in the viscous mixtures, spirals of pigment disperse across the hydrophobic paper, creating a reflective surface during the process that enables ideas of tension and displacement. These are the beginnings of a metaphorical space for the artist’s identity to exist. Tensions is an assemblage of paintings made of latex and high-gloss mediums that reflect the strain between the artist’s cultural identities of Chinese-European descent. By questioning her own ideas of identity, she investigates further and begins to reconcile the feelings of disassociation and of being an imposter, through finding solitude within these ambiguous paintings.

    Robyn Mah is a Calgary based artist; she is completing her painting degree at the AUarts. She is currently the co-director of The Wall Gallery, a student run space within the university. Trapped between cultural identities, she is interested in creating metaphorical spaces to understand the contrasting narratives of Chinese-European histories.
