Every year, the Esplanade Art Gallery presents ten to twelve exhibitions of contemporary and historical art by local, provincial, national and international artists that are enriched and animated by a wide range of public programs for all ages, including talks, workshops, tours and classes.

Sep 16-Nov 4 Resurrection: Kevin McKenzie. Cree/Métis artist McKenzie presents two powerful sculptural installations with handmade cast buffalo skulls illuminated by neon and LED lights. For McKenzie, the sublime effect evokes Christian iconography, and combined with Indigenous spiritual motifs, challenges viewers with questions about identity, post colonialism, technology, Christianity, cultural commodification, and alienation.

Sep 16-Nov 4 Wendy Struck: Unity of Opposites. Struck is well-known in Medicine Hat for her beautiful outdoor murals on downtown buildings, and in "Unity of Opposites" she presents three large murals, each poetically conveying a charged private moment, frozen in time. Wendy will paint the largest on site while the gallery is open, interacting with visitors in a painting performance. Along with smaller, detailed sculptural assemblages, her works illuminate ideas of time, presence and absence and public versus private worlds.
