Metro Gallery: A Smokin’ 50

The featured exhibit runs April 1-30, 2022 in Metro Gallery in the Garneau Theatre lobby.

 

Artist Statement

A Smokin’ 50 is a series of pop portraits celebrating some of the most influential people of the early 20th century. The thespians and artists chosen for this project were born between 1880 and 1930: within 50 years of each other. Created with palette knives, these artworks depict stars from the golden age of cinema, and some of the most renowned visual artists of that era.

 

Gabriela Rosende is a Chilean born, Canadian artist working from Edmonton. Her artwork is predominantly autobiographical, feminist, intersectional, and project-based. Artworks for this exhibit were created specifically for the location.
