Did you know? n Our River Nymph sculpture was created by internationally recognized

Armenian artist Vahe Tokmajyan. He carved it during a sculpture symposium held at the Okotoks Art Gallery in 2005 as part of Alberta’s Centennial celebration. n The River Nymph was originally made from one sandstone rock. In 2013

the artist revisited his work, joining the original nymph with a larger sandstone rock in order to provide a base. n The artist spent about four weeks creating this work of art. n The River Nymph was permanently installed just south of the Okotoks

Public Library and beside the Sheep River in 2013. n The sculpture weighs about 3,100 kilograms, which is just shy of

7,000 pounds. n The Greeks considered water nymphs—often depicted as beautiful, young

women reclining beside rivers and lakes—as the goddess protectors of the community’s water supply. n Water nymphs were also regarded as divine nurses and protectors of

young women, overseeing their safe passage into adulthood. n Freshwater nymphs are known as Naiads.

Okotoks Art Gallery at @ the Station

Crated | Pascale Ouellet January 9 to February 27 | Small Gallery Crated seeks to prod at the relationship that exists between consumers and farm animals, and it encourages the viewer to take stock of both individual animals and everyday objects that mediate our interactions with them. Through works created using encaustic, acrylic, and silkscreen techniques, the exhibit will employ bold, large-scale images and multiplication to herd these animals into the viewer’s consciousness. Opening Reception Saturday, January 23 | 1 to 3 pm

Un-Crated | A Student Response January 9 to 23 | Large Gallery An exciting showcase of student printmaking in response to Pascale Ouellet’s exhibition, Crated. A number of complex themes are explored, such as the relationship between consumers and farm animals, and the role and responsibility of consumers in the food industry.

Printfluence | AFA Travelling Exhibition

(TREX) Program

January 30 to February 24 | Large Gallery The Alberta Foundation for the Arts (AFA) has supported a provincial travelling exhibition program since 1981. The mandate of the AFA’s Travelling Exhibition Program (TREX) is to provide all Albertans with the opportunity to enjoy visual art exhibitions in their community. In this exhibition, four professional artists came together to explore the unknown. Each from different artistic backgrounds, Andrea Itzeck, Brenda Malkinson and Sara Norquay studied the ancient art of reductive colour woodblock printing with Tadeusz Warszynski, the renowned print artist originally from Kolbudy, Poland. While maintaining their own personal approach to art making, each employed Warszynski’s multiple woodblock technique, creating colourful, vibrant and organic works, using abstraction and narrative themes. The Okotoks Art Gallery wishes to acknowledge the Alberta Foundation for the Arts (AFA) and the Alberta Society of Artists (ASA) for the creation and financial support of this exhibition.

A Visual Journey from Plains to Coast Procession West Project

March 5 to April 30 | Large Gallery This selection of images takes the viewer on a visual journey across the western provinces of Canada. Begin on the Great Plains of the prairies and invoke the mood and feel of the big skies and distant horizon. Move westward into the badlands and the harsh light and raw feel of this continually eroding landscape. Continue into the parkland, foothills, and eventually the majestic mountains of the west, before finally descending to the Pacific coast. It is hoped that the viewer will gain an appreciation for the place that we call home, which never ceases to inspire and amaze. Opening Reception Saturday, March 5 | 1 to 3 pm

Watermarks: The Rivers of Alberta Elisa Sereno-Janz

March 5 to April 30 | Small Gallery Watermarks: The Rivers of Alberta uses satellite photos as a starting point for abstraction. Within these abstract oil paintings viewers can trace the flow of rivers and waterways, and see how they have carved out valleys and gullies. The exhibit is a product of contemporary technology reworked and translated through a traditional creative practice. This intersection between traditional art forms and contemporary technology invites viewers to reflect on their own place within this landscape and the transformation of the surface of the earth caused by human presence. Opening Reception Saturday, March 5 | 1 to 3 pm

Okotoks Museum and Archives at Heritage House

The 100th Anniversary of Women’s Right to Vote January 9 to April 30 | Front Room 2016 marks the 100th anniversary of women’s right to vote in Alberta. On April 19, 1916, Alberta became the third province in Canada to allow women the right to vote, behind Manitoba (January 18, 1916) and Saskatchewan (March 14, 1916). Women across the province had been meeting, often covertly, for months to gather community support for the suffrage movement. Publicly these meetings were disguised as ‘Pink Teas’, book club gatherings or bridge parties, but in truth were rallies to support women’s suffrage. This exhibit explores the local suffrage movement leading up to winning the right to vote and the right for women to hold office. It will also celebrate the Okotoks women who have served in public office. Pink Tea Opening Reception Saturday, January 23 | 1 to 3 pm Presentation at 2 pm

Just Wait Five Minutes… or 15,000 Years January 9 to August 31 | Second Floor Just Wait Five Minutes…or 15,000 Years is a temporary exhibit that examines the weather’s impact on Okotoks and its people. How did the Ice Age influence the local landscape? Why do we get Chinooks, and how have residents coped with the everchanging and often unforgiving rain, drought, hail, snow and wind? The exhibit will include fossils from before the Ice Age, which illustrate that this region’s climate was quite different than it is today. Environmental monitoring equipment, on loan from Environment Canada, will also be displayed. Opening Reception Saturday, January 23 | 1 to 3 pm

Okotoks Museum and Archives Lost Okotoks May 7 to October 30 | Main Floor Okotoks has, historically, been home to some unique businesses. Millineries, creameries, flour mills and liveries were among the specialized stores that served the Okotoks community in the early 1900s. However, these businesses have since been lost from our landscape. Some were destroyed by fire; others simply became obsolete or victims of change. Using maps, photos and newspaper advertisements, this exhibit helps re-create the streetscape of ‘Lost Okotoks.’

International Museum Day Wednesday, May 18 | 10 am to 5 pm The theme for the 2016 International Museum Day is Our Cultural Landscape. This theme ties in beautifully with the museum’s Lost Okotoks exhibit, in which we focus on what has, historically, defined our cultural landscape and what defines our current cultural landscape.
