Site 24: Owning It (AABIS - Alberta Artists with Brain Injury Society)
Nina Haggerty Centre for the Arts, 9225 118th Avenue
AABIS came out of the recreation therapy department at the Glenrose Hospital in 2003. People who were recovering from traumatic brain injury and had been making art as a form of therapy enjoyed it so much that they didn't want to stop after their hospital stay.

Emerge - Betty-Jo McCarville
Inspired by the 17th tarot card “the Star,” this series of pen and ink drawings looks at renewal, hope, emerging from darkness, and a brilliant array of stars in all their incarnations. www.bjmccarville.com
Let the Music Move You - Kelsey Fraser
Let the Music Move You is a playful collection of hypothetical album covers. Inspired by the absurd, awkward, and funny albums of the past, the artist seeks to imagine the ridiculous.
SINGING FOR NOTHING - Gerry Rasmussen
This work takes another look at our roots. Canada's early days, with its residential schools, attempts at genocide of First Nations People, and the Ku Klux Klan (who knew?), makes for some interesting subject matter. Getting at the humanity underneath it all is the artist's goal.
Pretty - JoAnna Lange
Exploring the role of the contemporary woman can reveal how the physical representation of the feminine often defines the role that figure assumes. Shape, gender, and status are all ideas Lange explores through the manipulation of the figure on paper.

Neuromantic - Adam Slusar
Adam Slusar navigates connections between elements of 20th century popular culture such as abstract expressionism, film noir and British new wave music. Touching upon themes of nostalgia and the patriarchal history of painting itself, his acrylic works are a kaleidoscope of color, figuration, and interior.
Carving out a future with a flint and an axe - Jonathan S. Green
Using printmaking, Jonathan S. Green combines historical documentation from early explorers, and imagery from wilderness survival books with his own photographs and drawings. The result is an uneasy, eerie, and dangerous landscape where our past must be reconciled with our contemporary desires to experience the wilderness.
Outside FAB Gallery, Telus Centre, North Entrance Courtyard, University of Alberta Campus
Hellmund’s sculptures explore ideas of perspective, exuberance, hope, movement and space. His hope is that through these forms expressed in three-dimensional space we are able to learn from, be inspired by, and begin to re-examine our existing ideals of spaces and community and how we inhabit them.
Adam Slusar, Reaganomics: Looking Up At The Moon
Site 28: eyes on the SUBLIME - Dan Bagan
McMullen Gallery, University Hospital, 8440 112 Street
This exhibition features Bagan’s pastel drawings, done en plein aire, in locations across central Alberta. The artist strives to produce art that is meaningful to people - to mirror experiences. His landscapes document human history, evidence of economic prosperity, and the sublime.
