Paintings, prints, sculptures are showing until July 8

Kinship: Images of Family and Community is a display of artwork from the Red Deer Museum + Art Gallery’s vast Indigenous and Inuit art collection.

Thanks to a bequest by donor Dr. Kathleen Swallow in the 1980s, the attraction holds an impressive collection of Indigenous and Inuit art. Works from this bequest, as well as from the museum’s broader art collection, are being exhibited along the theme of celebrating family and community relationships.

These paintings, prints and sculptures tell stories of parenthood, childhood and friendship.

The exhibit is showing at the Red Deer museum until July 8. An opening reception will be held Friday, June 7, from 5 to 8 p.m.
