SNAP opens the 2016 exhibitions season with important new works by Alberta Artist Tanya Harnett. The Lebret Residential Petroglyphs was originally curated and presented by Todd Schaber at the Art Gallery of Grande Prairie for the Alberta Foundation for the Arts Traveling Exhibition Program. This series of photographic prints help confront and explore the devastating impacts of the Canadian Residential School System. Documenting and presenting images of the remaining brick gates from the Lebret Residential School, Harnett’s photos act as memorial and reminder and signal the work of healing and reconciliation yet to come. In the wake of The Truth and Reconciliation Commissions recommendations Harnett will be developing a new project in the SNAP Community Gallery. The new work will reference Joane Cardinal-Schubert’s The Lesson and investigate the rhetoric of an apology.

Opening Reception: Friday, January 8, 7–9 pm. Artist’s talk: Thursday, January 14, 6 pm.

SNAP is happy to provide this programming at no cost to participants.

We hope you will consider making a donation to keep programs accessible in the future.
