Marlena Wyman: Illuminating the Diary of Alda Dale Randall poster

February 2, 2016 – August 20, 2016

The exhibit of artist, former archivist and third generation prairie woman Marlena Wyman is inspired by the 1920 diary of Alberta homesteader Alda Dale Randall, held in the collection of the Provincial Archives of Alberta. In her art practice, Wyman honours early prairie women and sheds light on their contributions that are often hidden in the shadows of the western settlement story. This exhibit will be on display from February 2, 2016 to August 20, 2016.

Exhibition hours are Tuesday to Saturday 9am to 4:30pm and Wednesday until 9pm.
