The Art Gallery of Alberta is one of the oldest art galleries in Canada, and is celebrating its 90th birthday with the exhibit 90x90 featuring 90 pieces by 90 different Albertan artists created between 1924-2014. 

I was lucky enough to preview the exhibit this afternoon and was completely blown away by the work on display. The show is an eclectic mix of sculpture, installation pieces, painting, portraiture, and everything in between — an incredibly diverse showing of the fantastic creative talent that lives in Canada.

Here are a few shots of some of the pieces. If you are in the area, the exhibit runs until September 14, 2014. (If you've missed it, enjoy these photos!)
