Through generous support and assistance from the Alberta Foundation for the Arts, Art Gallery of St Albert is thrilled to share an original exhibition of artworks from the AFA's collection with our visitors and community.
Night Hours features works from 15 Alberta artists who redefine the painting tradition of ‘The Nocturne’ within a contemporary framework. These artists portray dreamlike night-time landscapes that capture the vastness of the night sky and the numinous darkened natural world.hese artists portray dreamlike night-time landscapes that capture the vastness of the night sky and the numinous darkened natural world. The mundane backdrop of the everyday is engulfed in dark obscurity, transforming it into a sublime domain. As night quietly creeps across the land the atmospheric quality captured provokes otherworldly associations, powerful emotions and states of mind.
The selected paintings, ceramics and prints in this exhibit range from realism to abstraction in style and communicate a contemporary expression of this genre.
