Enriching the Arts

Take a look at what happened at our AGM!

April 19, 2015 at the Southern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium

ASA logo- alberta culture days2The Alberta Society of Artists would like to thank everyone who attended our Annual General Meeting this year! Over 50 members of the Alberta Society of Artists attended the AGM or submitted a proxy. The AGM was held in the Southern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium, across from the Alberta College of Art and Design (ACAD). Scroll down to the bottom of the blog to see some photos from the event! All photos were taken by ASA member Joseph Potts.

ASA members gathered at the Jube at 1:00PM, when the meeting began. The meeting lasted until 4:30PM and during that time the attending ASA members watched presentations covering what the Society has been doing in the past year – including a presentation from ASA Educational Chair Tammy Watt about the ASA’s commitment to fine arts education and a presentation from ASA Membership Chair Ilse Anysas-Salkauskas regarding membership renewals and new ASA members.

The ASA also welcomed four new full members in 2015. The names of our new members are:

Denis Gadbois
John Hoyt
Melanie Morstad
Chester Lees

Check out their websites and keep an eye out for their work in future ASA exhibitions.

After the conclusion of the AGM, ASA members who had purchased dinner tickets gathered for the ASA dinner and speaker event! The buffet dinner contained an array of food and beverages for everyone to enjoy. After the dinner the speaker event occurred. Our speaker for this event was Chris Willard, the Head of Painting at ACAD, and the subject of his presentation was “Art is a lie – a lie that tells the truth.”

Thank you for attending and we hope to see you again next year!
