Joane Cardinal-Schubert

May 21st, 2014 - Jun 18th, 2014

This exhibition, which runs from May 21st through June 18th, 2014 at the Red Deer Museum and Art Gallery, features the art of the late Joane Cardinal-Schubert (1942 - 2009). Joane was well known in Alberta and nationally as a visual artist, poet, writer, curator and activist. She was particularly concerned about the treatment of First Nations groups and artists in Canada and the lack of recognition that they were receiving. Her artwork eloquently addresses themes of race, history and politics in Canada. By using bright colours and beautiful imagery she draws the viewer into the artwork and upon closer reflection reveals the provocative subject matter.
This exhibition features work spanning her entire career, from her student days and early career in the 1960s and 1970s to her most recent work. It includes a wide range of media including hand-tinted prints, paintings, drawings and mixed media works.
Joane Cardinal-Schubert is a touring exhibition developed by the Alberta Society of Artists for the Alberta Foundation for the Arts Travelling Exhibition Program. This exhibition is currently circulating throughout the southwest/central parts of Alberta. The AFA Travelling Exhibition Program is financially supported by the Alberta Foundation for the Arts.
