'Collecting Sphagnum Moss' by Morgan Possberg Denne

2023 Rise Emerging Artist Exhibition

Collecting Sphagnum Moss addresses the loss of cultural knowledge that happened with the loss of Indigenous parental lineage, due to colonialist interference. It is the mourning of what family relationships could have been without residential schools and the PTSD left in their wake. Morgan’s work also highlights the power of seeking out relationships and learning ancestral skills in pursuit of healing: they celebrate the ability to determine one's own future, despite the weight of history.

'pliers to an echo' by Nicole Mary

2023 Rise Emerging Artist Exhibition

This exhibition is an arm-knitting installation inspired by themes of information overload and lost history. Arm-knitting is used as a metaphor to explore the community impact of political radicalization, where scale, form, and symbols serve as representations of power. The artist traced entry points into radicalization through online and local communities that discussed the occult, new age spirituality, and natural living, noticing a common thread of decentralised or altered history.

The focus of the HUB Gallery is on three main streams of exhibitions: Community Exhibits, Exhibits by Emerging Artists, and Educational Exhibits.

Community Exhibits: artsPlace hosts a number of exhibitions created by artists who currently reside in the Bow Valley, with an aim to celebrate the local creative talent by showcasing our artist instructors, local youth, individual artists, and local artist groups. An annual call for community submissions goes out in the fall. Submissions are reviewed by a committee of local artists and community members.

Exhibits by Emerging Artists: artsPlace provides an artistic platform to support Alberta emerging artists interested in pursuing a career in the arts, by helping them to gain valuable exhibition experience. An annual call for submissions goes out in the fall. Submissions are reviewed by a committee of professional contemporary artists.

Educational Exhibits: artsPlace endeavors to include exhibitions that serve to educate the Bow Valley community about contemporary arts and to bring in new and engaging artwork to be experienced by the Bow Valley community. This may include TREX, the Alberta Foundation for the Arts Travelling Exhibition Program designed to promote Alberta art and artists through professionally developed exhibitions, as well as other partnerships and projects.

Some exhibitions may fit in more than one category. For example, Community Exhibits or Exhibits by Emerging Artists, may also serve to provide educational opportunities to the Bow Valley Community to experience contemporary arts, or a Community-Created Exhibit may be created by an emerging artist.
