In Light of Things presents a vibrant collection of cyanotype prints created by participants in the Aging Well with Art project. This group of works explores the individual and communal nature of memory, mapping various moments in time. Through material selection, composition, and UV printing processes, participants create unique images that capture personal recollections.

The work in this exhibition was created by participants in a travelling art workshop presented as a part of Alberta’s Aging Well in Community initiative, supporting projects where community members of all ability levels were connected to the creative process. This project was developed and presented by Indefinite Arts Centre in partnership with numerous Senior’s groups, clubs and associations throughout Calgary including:

  • Open Door Seniors Fellowship
  • Falconridge Castleridge Seniors Club
  • West Hillhust Go-Getters Seniors Club
  • Kerby Centre
  • Huntington Pioneers Association
  • Kensington Commons (50+ group)
  • Hillhurst Sunnyside Seniors Association
  • South Fishcreek 50+ Seniors

Indefinite Arts Centre would like to acknowledge the Government of Alberta through the Ministry of Seniors and Housing for their critical support in allowing us to explore and deliver the Aging Well with Art workshops throughout Calgary. This project would also not have been possible without the willing partners and host organizations that opened their doors to us.
