Katherine Braid: Voices from Our Past
September 25, 2014 – January 23, 2016
The Provincial Archives of Alberta is pleased to present Katherine Braid: Voices from Our Past as part of Culture Days 2015. This exhibit will be on display from September 25, 2015 to January 23, 2016.
Inspired by the accounts of early settlers, missionaries and explorers—as well as her own personal history and connection to the Edmonton region—Katherine Braid’s exhibit presents paintings depicting moments taken from those stories. Building on these historical descriptions and other research, Braid creates intimate portraits of Alberta’s past.
Please join us during Archives Week for the opening reception at 7:00pm on October 7, 2015.
Exhibition hours are Tuesday-Saturday from 9:00am-4:30pm and Wednesdays from 9:00am-9:00pm.

The Alberta Legislature: More than Steel, Stone & Glass: 1912-2012
This exhibit celebrates the hundredth anniversary of the Alberta Legislature Building. Rising 176 feet into the prairie sky, the building is faced with granite and sandstone and the interior is finished with over two thousand tons of marble. The grand structure is a symbolic anchor for the province – a reminder of its past and a vision for its future.
