Alumni + Faculty Exhibition - The Art Gallery of Alberta Presents: Chris Cran, Sincerely Yours
Edmonton, AB - The Art Gallery of Alberta (AGA) presents CHRIS CRAN, Sincerely Yours, from September 12, 2015 through January 3, 2016. Organized by the Art Gallery of Alberta and the National Gallery of Canada as part of the NGC @ AGA exhibition series, it features the work of Chris Cran, one of the most influential Alberta artists working today, and one of Canada’s preeminent painters of the last few decades. CHRIS CRAN, Sincerely Yours is the most comprehensive examination of Cran’s practice mounted to date and includes over 100 works surveying his artistic production over the last 30 years. He will give an artist talk in conversation with friend and actor Bruce McCulloch on Friday, September 11 at 6:30 pm.
Cran is known for his experimentation with traditional genres of painting, bringing his own unique perspective to still-life, portraiture, landscape and abstraction. His work challenges the traditional medium of painting to explore and question other forms of representation, including photography and printed media.
Chris Cran is a senior Canadian artist who currently lives and works in Calgary, Alberta. He studied at the Kootenay School of Art in Nelson, B.C., and graduated from the Alberta College of Art + Design in 1979. Cran has influenced and mentored a generation of artists studying at the Alberta College of Art + Design, where he still teaches.
