$13 for Misled by Nature: Contemporary Art and the Baroque Exhibit for Two (Up to $26.26 Value)

A partner effort by the National Gallery of Canada and the Art Gallery of Alberta, Misled by Nature: Contemporary Art and the Baroque presents work by seven contemporary artists who explore the aesthetics of historical Baroque style. Sometimes called neo-baroque, the form draws upon characteristics such as material excess, theatricality, and bravado in pieces from sculpture to installations. Buyers also receive admission to the rest of the gallery's exhibits. Misled by Nature: Contemporary Art and the Baroque runs through Sunday, January 6.

The Art Gallery of Alberta's rates vary based on age, membership, and group size.

Art Gallery of Alberta

Angular windows surround a 190-metre ribbon of steel that pays homage to the North Saskatchewan River and aurora borealis; the three-floor, 85,000-square-foot Art Gallery of Alberta is itself a work of art. And though Los Angeles–based architect Randall Stout's design gives the gallery a distinctly contemporary feel, the AGA ranks among the oldest cultural institutions in Alberta, showcasing artwork since 1924.

Connecting people, art, and ideas, AGA organizes programming such as talks, films, and tours, as well as youth and adult art classes. The gallery also encompasses the Terrace Café and Zinc Restaurant, where Executive Chef David Omar prepares dishes with local artisan ingredients.
