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.
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,
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.
Poetic Space - Adam Hellmund
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
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.
