UP on the Square: Benjamin Oswald
Opening Reception: June 3, 12 - 2 pm, exhibit runs: June 3 - 17.
Location: TIX on the Square

Find a selection of work from Benjamin Oswald's residency, the unveiling of the City Marigold collection and many other surprises at TIX between June 3 - 17. Many of the pieces on display were created with glazes developed with one of his recent EAC grants. Select items will be available for purchase.

Benjamin Oswald has shown and sold in multiple spaces in Edmonton and beyond, including at Latitude 53, AGA, TIX, the Artworks and Studio 21 Gallery in Halifax. Through a project with TIX, Benjamin was commissioned by the City of Edmonton to create a special collection which references our civic flower, the marigold. He recently returned home from a residency in Denmark, where he experimented with new forms, glazes and forms.


Green Shack Shows

Green Shack Shows

This summer, the Edmonton Arts Council thrilled to once again partner with the City of Edmonton to present "Green Shack Shows."  Throughout July and August, free concerts and performances will happen five days a week at Green Shacks across the city with one performance in the morning, and another in the afternoon. 

Last year we featured amazing family-friendly entertainment such as Sangea Academy, Jojo's Magic Circus, SocaFit & Friends, Dallas Arcand Jr., Kaybridge Puppets, The Great Balonzo, and Kompany! Family Theatre.

Stay tuned for more information about this year's programming!


Downtown Edmonton continues to transform, building a better and more family-friendly gathering place for citizens and visitors. Sir Winston Churchill Square and the Civic Precinct will be impacted by Valley Line LRT construction. Access to businesses on the Square will be maintained during construction. For your safety, please obey posted signs.

For up-to-date information on the Valley Line LRT project progress and impacts, please visit www.transedlrt.ca

Sir Winston Churchill Square is easily accessible by bus and LRT. Visit www.takeETS.com for route and schedule information.
