Nicholas de Grandmaison at Government House – Edmonton, Alberta

“Black White Man”

Janice Ryan of the Edmonton Journal recently wrote an article on the art collection  at Government House in Edmonton, Alberta.  This collection of both historic and contemporary art by both Canadian and International artists was started in 1969 and has grown through both donations and available acquisition funding.  The collection now has 215 pieces.  Included in the collection is a portrait of “Black White Man” done by Nicholas de Grandmaison.

The current exhibition “Vanishing Point:  A Rural Perspective” exhibits the work of four Alberta Artists – William Kurelek, H.G. Glyde, Annora Brown and Doris Zaharichuk.

Government House is open to the public every Sunday and holiday Monday.

Here is a link to the full article and photos of work in the collection.
