"Eye to Eye"
In 1994, The Works Festival took the opportunity to present the Festival on two occasions. The Festival was first shown in Edmonton, but then traveled to Victoria, BC for the XV Commonwealth Games. The Alberta Part Art Society, producer of The Works Festival, was commissioned by the Commonwealth Games Arts and Culture Committee to set up 42 sites, representing 423 artists in Victoria during the Games.
Feature Exhibit: Goddesses
Art by Gudrun Klix, Ann Roberts and Michael Flynn.
Australian artist, Gudrun Kilx, through her use of red Australian clays, reflected her connection to the land. Creating from a figurative perspective, Klix marked suggestions of feminity rather than overt representations.
Formolo Dance Association
Performance at Edmonton City Hall
Featuring: Kokoro Dance & Alberta Performance Artists
(Sculptor Sandra Bromley's exhibit, Passages and Transitions can be seen in the background)
Barbara Borget and Jay Hirabayashi, choreographers in the Vancouver based Kokoro Dance Company, created a performance that was a fusion of Japanese Butoh Dance and Modern Ballet. It's name, Formolo was an experimental dance form that emphasized startling visual effects that emerged from expressive bodily movement.
Faces of Family Pride
Images provided by Shirley Shillinglaw and Emerald Aswanne.
Presented by Women of the Metis Nation, this juried exhibit, Faces of Family Pride was curated by Heather Shillinglaw to honour the International Year of the Family. This traveling exhibit was a positive reflection of Native heritage and displayed both the personal and spiritual aspirations of varied First Nations cultures.
