To welcome in the new year 2023, the Thomas A. Edge Archives is launching our newest installment of the Art Collection Guest Curator Series. This wonderful exhibit has been curated by Dr. Henry Tsang, an Assistant Professor in the RAIC Centre for Architecture here at Athabasca University, and is titled: The Vernacular Architecture of Canadian Towns: People and Habitat in Rural and Regional Communities.

In this exhibit Henry celebrates the small-town vernacular architecture of Canada through artworks from the AU Art Collection, revealing clues about how communities live, work and play and adapt to our Canadian climate and environment through the structures they create.
