Join Art on Alberta in welcoming its mobile art gallery, a 1960s teardrop trailer dubbed RED ROVER, during June’s Last Thursday event on Northeast Alberta Street. Each month the trailer will present works from local artists. This month’s featured artist, Lauren Grube, will showcase photographs and a nature installation in the unique space on public display through July.
- WHO: Lauren Grube
- WHAT: photographs and nature installation
- WHEN: Last Thursday on Alberta (June 30, 2011, 5 – 9pm)
- WHERE: Art on Alberta’s Red Rover near Binks Bar @ 2715 Northeast Alberta Street
Looking through the gallery windows at her installation, Ms. Grube hopes you will examine your ongoing interaction with nature, yet momentarily within the confines of a metal trailer. The gallery may be seen on Thursday, June 30, 2011 from 5:00 to 9:00pm at 2715 Northeast Alberta Street in front of Binks Bar. Thereafter, the exhibit may be seen through July 26 on Northeast 19th Avenue between Going and Wygant Streets.
Nature is wondrously alive. Across the planet we are all sustained and surrounded by its magic, whether or not we realize it or even see it. It envelops, protects and sustains everyone regardless of age, race or religion. It can comfort and solace. It imbues us with the wisdom of its ancient ways, simply by its being. I’ve always been intrigued with the power of this silent world and look for opportunities to capture its spirituality through photography. We may find it in a spectacular scenic vista or in the intricate design of a single leaf. The inner beauty of this mysterious world resonates with meaning and unity, if we only stop to notice. How does this silent world then feel inside a trailer? Does that metal barrier make us feel differently about what we see?
