Marion Nicoll Butterflies

Join us for a discussion about Calgary's art community in a decade known for its social, cultural and artistic turmoil. How did the city’s explosive growth ripple through the community? How were local artists influenced by the international artworld? These and other questions are tackled by five individuals familiar with the artistic environment in Calgary at the time.

Panel Participants

Les Graff: A painter who graduated from Calgary's Alberta College of Art & Design (ACAD) in 1959, Graff spent 30 years as the leading figure in the provincial government's Visual Arts Branch.
Katie Ohe: A practicing artist and instructor as well as an ACAD graduate (1958), Ohe has distinguished herself as a pioneer in the field of sculpture in Alberta.
Ron Moppett: A former curator and nationally recognized painter who was awarded the Gershon Iskowitz Prize in 1997, Moppett is a practicing artist and also a graduate of ACAD (1967).
