Diverse works from four Central Alberta artists will be included in the 2015 Alberta biennial of contemporary art, presented by the Art Gallery of Alberta in Edmonton.

Sculptor and painter Jason Frizzell and multi-media/installation artist Robin Lambert (both visual arts instructors at Red Deer College), Red Deer-raised photographer Nicole Kelly Westman of Red Deer, and Sundre sculptor Jude Griebel are among 42 Alberta artists whose works were chosen for the Future Station exhibit. It will run from Jan. 24 to May 3 of next year.

Some themes of the biennial exhibit are: how psychology effects creativity and response to art, how natural forces shape art, and working with detritus and austerity.

Show curator Kristy Trinier said visitors will be given a glimpse into “the dynamic future of art in our province” through the show.

She believes Alberta’s physical and psychological environment “seeps into your lexicon as an artist and manifests in the work.”

She aims to “articulate” this in the exhibition that will take up three spaces at the gallery, as well as some offsite installations.

The Art Gallery of Alberta has been presenting the biennial of contemporary art since 1996.
