Painting of a dining room

The Provincial Archives of Alberta is proud to present its newest gallery exhibit, A Living Space by Gillian Willans.

In this wonderful new exhibit, artistic inspiration has turned archival photographic images into painted scenes and emotive drawings of the domestic realm.  These poignant paintings capture spaces of the past which were entirely sourced from the PAA collection.  Visit the PAA to see how archival records can inspire art!
