Ledge Gallery: RandM Collective
It's a Jungle Out There?!
EPCOR CENTRE’s Ledge Gallery (+15 level of Centre Court)
Dates: November 3, 2014 - November 30, 2014
Artist Reception: Thursday, November 13 from 5 – 8 pm, Upper Centre Court
EPCOR CENTRE is excited to be hosting RandM Collective in the Ledge Gallery It's A Jungle Out There?!, a collaborative project that will result in the creation of a new children’s storybook featuring some of the best of Calgary’s illustrators.
“Children’s books can easily be overlooked as an artform and rarely examined within a gallery context,” says Mike Kerr, co-founder of RandM Collective. “As artists, we can sometimes underestimate what a wonderful media and potential illustrating for children might be.”
It's A Jungle Out There?! brings together a select group of illustrators from Alberta including: Lincoln Agnew, Joy Ang, Byron Eggenschwiler, Maya Gohill, Josh Holinaty, Jacqui Lee, Aaron Leighton, Karen Klassen, Michael Mateyko, Kyle Metcalf, Sandy Nichols, Kim Smith, Lauren Tamaki, and Jacqueline Hudon-Verrelli. The general public will also be invited into the space to draw their own interpretations of the story. The project includes an exhibition of the work, a sketching party, and a roundtable discussion with the artists.
RandM Collective's mission is to promote and celebrate all things illustrative through exhibitions and events in collaboration with artists that utilize the art of illustration. Over the last few years RandM Collective has held group and solo shows as well as collaborative sketch projects. It’s A Jungle Out There?! is a collaborative Picture Book Project featuring award winning and internationally recognized illustrators from Alberta including Lincoln Agnew, Joy Ang, Byron Eggenschwiler, Maya Gohill, Josh Holinaty, Jacqui Lee, Aaron Leighton, Renata Liwska, Mike Kerr, Karen Klassen, Michael Mateyko, Kyle Metcalf, Sandy Nichols, Kim Smith, Lauren Tamaki, and Jacqueline Hudon-Verrelli.
