Four seasons in the cemeteries
A year has passed since Candace Makowichuk became the first artist-in-residence for City of Edmonton Cemeteries. In that time, she’s watched the seasons change and explored Edmonton’s history – and how it is preserved. “I’ve learned a lot about maintenance,” laughs Makowichuk, noting that she will miss talking with the caretakers and visiting with the administrative staff at each cemetery. “But I’m going to miss the rigor most of all.” As with many of our City of Edmonton artists in residence, Makowichuk found that the full-time position gave her the opportunity to dedicate her time and energy solely to a single project. The results of that project, a series of photographs, will be exhibited at City Hall on May 8th.

On May 8th, from noon to 2:00 pm, Makowichuk invites the public to the opening an exhibit of her work as artist-in-residence. The work will be on display at City Hall until May 21, 2018.
