Exhibition Announcement

The Embassy of Canada is pleased to present an exhibition featuring prints by Liz Ingram in its Prince Takamado Gallery.

The exhibition, which features 24 artworks produced over the last thirty years, celebrates the wonder of water and investigates issues relating to the fragility of life and the environment. Through various media including the printed image, paper and ink, glass, light, and shimmering pixels and fabric, Ingram attempts to re-awaken our awareness of our oneness with nature, and the elemental aspect of water to all life forms.

The exhibition will also feature one work by Tetsuya Noda and one by Ryoji Ikeda, two Japanese artists with whom Ingram has been closely associated.

Ingram was born in Argentina and grew up in New Delhi, Mumbai and Toronto. For forty years she has been teaching at the University of Alberta in Edmonton, and is currently Distinguished University Professor in printmaking and drawing/intermedia. Her artworks have been exhibited in numerous solo and duo exhibitions, and over 250 group exhibitions in North and South America, Europe, the Middle East and Asia. In 2009 she was elected into the Royal Society of Canada for her contributions to Canadian culture. Her large publicly commissioned works can be found at Edmonton International Airport, Southern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium in Calgary, and Fort McMurray International Airport.
