Tuesday, December 17th, 2019
KATIE OHE January 25 – May 3

OPENING: Friday 24 January, 6–10PM

Esker Foundation is pleased to present an in-depth look at Katie Ohe’s sculptural practice and her unparalleled approach to material, form, space, and movement. This eponymous exhibition—her largest and most comprehensive solo exhibition to date—traces the development of work through six decades of Ohe’s remarkable sculptural practice. Over the years Katie Ohe has been a catalyzing force in Calgary’s art community as an artist, mentor, teacher, supporter, and builder. One of Alberta’s most important artistic figures, she has made a significant contribution to the development of contemporary art in the province and her innovative approaches to material, form, movement, and participation have been a meaningful influence for generations.
