Coffee’s On at the Gallery

Wednesday, September 13, 2017, 9 – 10:30 am
Main Gallery, Centre for the Arts, W600

Admission is free. All are welcome.

The University of Lethbridge Art Gallery invites everyone to join us in the Main Gallery (W600) from 9 – 10:30 am on the first Wednesday after a new show opens to enjoy coffee and conversation while taking in the latest exhibition.

The Drawing Bar

Thursday, September 14, 2017, 7 – 9 pm
Main Gallery, Centre for the Arts, W600

Admission is free. All are welcome.

Materials are provided or bring your own.

All experience levels welcome.

The U of L Art Gallery’s “Drawing Bar” is public programming for “grown-ups”. As the title suggests, one Thursday night per month, there is a cash bar to go along with drawing activities. Each event will have a loose theme to give a starting point, but people can also simply come for some social art making. The gallery will provide basic materials for new comers, or those who are less picky, and staff and volunteers will be on hand if assistance is wanted. Artists and the more choosy drawing fans can also bring their own clean drawing materials – the event is in the gallery during exhibitions so pastels, charcoal, or other dust generating media are not compatible with the exhibited art. Knitters are also welcome if they prefer an evening event (and the closer parking that is available at night).

Knit ‘n’ Knatter / Crochet ‘n’ Chatter

Monday, September 18, 2017, 12 – 1 pm
Main Gallery, Centre for the Arts, W600

Admission is free. All are welcome.

Open to all, experienced crafty folk can bring their own projects or new comers can come and try making a granny square with the assistance of gallery staff and volunteers.  The program will provide an opportunity for an informal social event to view the exhibitions, swap knitting tips, and enjoy the public space of the gallery. As a day time event, we know that it is easier for on-campus people to attend, but everyone is welcome.
