A Fond Farewell
As of August 29th, our Director /
Curator, Griffith Aaron Baker and Gallery Educator,
Twyla Exner will no longer be with the Mann Art
Gallery. Baker has accepted a position as Executive Director of
the Art Gallery of Grande Prairie (AGGP) effective September 1st.
The AGGP has recently created a Class 'A' multimillion dollar facility
in the Montrose Cultural Center in the rapidly expanding city in North
West Alberta. As two of the three employees of the Mann Art
Gallery, responsible for mush of the prosperous growth the gallery has
achieved in recent years, it is with great regrets that we bid farewell
to Baker and Exner and we wish them well in their future endeavours.
Please bear with us as we find a replacement for the Director / Curator
and Gallery Educator positions. We hope to have both filled before
the end of the year. In the meantime, inquires can still be
Due to a shortage in staff the Mann Art
Gallery will be closed on Saturday's and Sunday's
effective immediately. We will remain open from 10:00am - 5:00pm
Monday - Friday. If you are coming from out of town on the weekend
and would like to see the gallery, please make arrangements ahead of
time - we may be able to accommodate.

Home Routes Concert Series Announced
The Mann Art Gallery is pleased to
announce that we will be carrying on the tradition of the Home Routes
'House' concerts during the 2014 - 15 season with six award winning

operates 14 house concert touring circuits across Canada, from YT to PE. House
concerts are a North American tradition
that developed within the folk-roots milieu to introduce artists to
wider audiences. During the 1950’s “folk boom” a significant number of
young people began to choose “folk singing” as their profession. With
the number of talented performers by far exceeding the number of places
to play, house concerts remain a significant part of the music scene.
Home Routes brings
small communities professional artists of exceptional talent who would
otherwise perform only in theatres, concert halls and folk festivals in
urban markets. With almost no physical separation between artist and
audience, a house concert is an intimate experience for everyone.
Casual, comfortable and unpretentious, house concerts are fun and very
often, inspirational events that create lasting memories.

The MAG hosts receptions for exhibiting artists
whenever possible. Events such as these allow visitors to meet artists
and learn more about their work. The artists give a brief talk about
their art practice and answer questions from those present. The gallery
provides free refreshments. Artist Receptions last about 2 hours, but it
is not necessary to stay the whole time. There is no dress code and
everyone is invited to attend. Children are also welcome to come with
their families. The next reception will take place in June / July
for the Myles MacDonald and George Glenn exhibition
The Watchmen. Exact dates to be announced. For
more information on our current exhibitions click HERE.
