Art NOW Series: Dean Smale
October 12, 2018
Noon | University Recital Hall
Free admission, everyone welcome
My work explores aspects of human existence, spiritual crisis, and the anxiety that arises out of one’s own understanding of mortality. Occurrences represent multiple states of being, divergent moments in time, conflicting memories of events, and the relationship between the spiritual and the physical realms and all that it implies from the extramundane to the mundane, and the absurdity of existence.
Smale's exhibition, Occurences, opens at Trianon Gallery (in cooperation with Savill Group Architecture) on September 29, 2018.
Dean Smale earned a MFA from the University of Calgary and currently is the Coordinator of the Visual Communications Program and instructor at Medicine Hat College. He has also instructed visual arts at College of the Rockies, Eastern Oregon University, and Red Deer College. In his professional practice, he has been an artist lecturer at various educational institutes and galleries. He has won various awards, exhibits frequently (solo and group exhibitions), has been published, and his work is in collections in the US and Canada.
