Audrey Mabee is a visual artist practicing out of Arts Central Gallery in downtown Calgary. She has graciously VOLUNTEERED her time with both Kindergarten classes and allowed her work to be photographed for careful examination by our students. She will be doing a watercolour project with our students on February 27th, 2006.
Audrey Mabee is a practicing artist in Calgary and she founded Artspace Gallery where we will have our Kindergarten art show on May 5th, 2006. Artspace opened in October 2000, with a public launch in April 2001. Enlightened entrepreneur and owner Gerry Kendall first had the vision of an art market on the site, and brought in Audrey Mabee (once acting president of the Alberta College of Art and Design, and before that, part owner of The Croft) to shape the idea. She, in turn, enlisted her son Rob Mabee (formerly of Harrison Galleries) as gallery director. Who would have known that when Mrs. Patsula admired her art in ArtsCentral gallery that she would be intimately connected with the location of our Kindergarten art gallery show? Artspace is located on the second level of Crossroads Market (1235 - 26 Ave. S.E.). Hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. from Tuesday to Friday.
