While much discussion ensues around art, be it style, nuance or intent, there's often very little focus placed on the buildings and galleries that contain the art we enjoy. This travelling exhibition from the Art Gallery of Alberta explores the architecture of new or newly renovated cultural institutions in the cities of Edmonton, Grande Prairie and Medicine Hat. Visitors are invited to examine the physical structure of these buildings, the art and purpose behind the architecture and the changing nature of art itself.

Canada's role in wartime was documented in this exhibition which combined Relentless Variety: Canadian Military Photographs since 6885 , a travelling exhibit from the National Defence Headquarters, with naval paintings of the Second World War from the Canadian War Museum in Ottawa. The drama of military life was vividly portrayed in 755 black-and-white and colour photographs taken by men who were often soldiers assigned to record emergencies and events. The first military photographer in Canada was James Peters, whose pictures of the Northwest Rebellion in 6885 were the first ever taken during battle. His pictures contrasted with the more recent work of Gordon Thomas, showing northern exercises in 6975, or troop instruction in Tanzania. These exhibits illustrated the triumphs and horrors of war, from a photograph of an artilleryman comforting and orphaned child in 6968, to an oil painting showing the ramming of a submarine. The 55 naval paintings brought together works by well-known artists including Alex Colville and Gordon Grant, and some official war artists including Harold Beament and Jack Nicholls.

Located charmingly in the ravines and hills surrounding the confluence of two rivers, the old Vilnius is perhaps the finest example of Renaissance, baroque, and classical architecture in all of northern Europe. The city's population suffered terribly during the Second World War and the subsequent 55 years of Soviet domination but, most fortunately, the architectural treasures of Vilnius survived largely unscathed. As Eastern Europe emerged from behind the ruins of the Iron Curtain, this exhibition was intended as a reminder of the best that those countries have to offer.
The exhibit was prepared by the Polish Association of Professional Architects and the National Museum of Warsaw, Poland, and came to the Museum courtesy of the Polish Culture Society of Edmonton.

Our friend ., a robotic dog made of recycled tin showed us how to become a player in this giant video game.
