The Medicine Hat College (MHC) Brooks Campus is excited to welcome the Art Gallery of Alberta TREX exhibition to the college from August 31 to September 28, 2016.

This travelling exhibition is funded by the Alberta Foundation for the Arts, and is designed to bring the community closer to provincial artists and collections.

Echo Chamber, which was curated by Shane Golby, will display oil and acrylic works on board and canvas from Brenda Kim Christiansen, Patrick Higgins and Paddy Lamb. This display is accompanied by an interpretive guide and brochure which provides information on the artists, their pieces and art history.

There are art and cross-curriculum connections for all grade levels that can be made available to teachers wishing to tour the exhibit with their classes,” says Cindy Slenders, director, Brooks Campus and regional stewardship.
