Gallery@501 exhibit features local artist Paddy Lamb

Gallery@501 is pleased to present Repeated Visits to the Museum of Life by local artist, Paddy Lamb. This exhibit opens March 5 and will be on display at Gallery@501 until April 26. The public is invited to attend the exhibit’s opening reception on Thursday, March 5 at 7 p.m. at Gallery@501 (#120, 501 Festival Avenue, Sherwood Park).

Born in Ireland, Paddy Lamb moved to Canada in 1985 and is a graduate of the University of Alberta. His work is strongly influenced by history, memory and social culture, offering a personal narrative concerning human migration and attachment to the land. Repeated Visits to the Museum of Life features landscape-based art installations that reflect different eras of cultural heritage and challenge a traditional definition of commemoration or monument.
