Welcome to our brand new project... Tangled Tree Gallery is coming soon and we couldn't be more excited!
Tangled Tree Gallery for Contemporary Fine Art & Fine Craft
What: TTG is a cutting edge, micro sized, touring contemporary art & craft gallery based in Calgary, Ab Canada. It is approximately 200 square feet and includes exhibition and workshop space, solar and wind power, sustainable building materials and off-grid amenities; it is a mobile venue that is 20 feet long and 8.5 feet wide with the ability to visit a variety of locations in Alberta and surrounding areas year round.
TTG features 12 group or solo exhibitions of small-scale works per year, each lasting approximately 4 weeks. Each exhibition is juried from a selection of works submitted during our calls for submission which occur four times per year. Each exhibition will be curated by a committee of two: founder and director Kristine Thoreson, PhD along with a special guest artist or curator.
TTG is interested in showing a broad range of media and thematics, however we are especially interested in works that engage with theory and / or practice of: sustainable living, environmental stewardship, space & place, nature & culture, the built and the natural environments, consumer culture, visual culture, design thinking, Slow Living, renewable energy technology and up cycled or recycled materials. Featuring fine art and craft from local and international artists and artisans, TTG is a leading edge example of a business with a small footprint and a big opportunity for advancing knowledge through art practice and education. Each exhibition features either an artist's talk or curators talk and opportunities for workshops that involve the audience in experiential learning, skill development or leadership development in conjunction with each specific exhibition theme.
Where: TTG is currently scheduled to attend a number of festivals and events throughout 2018. The schedule will be posted here as soon as it's ready! We are also available for bookings and will travel to your event with our exhibition or exhibition and workshops (fees apply). Please enquire about having us join your event or visit your community, organization, department, grade school class, college or university! We'd love to work with you!
Who: Developed and directed by Kristine Thoreson, (Phd in Research Creation in studio art and photography of the Circumpolar north), TTG is a project borne of inspiration, serendipity and local support all found within the arts and academic community and Rocky Mountain landscapes of Calgary and Alberta.
