Stories have been the primary means of sharing experiences, histories and helping people understand the human condition and ourselves since the dawn of civilization.

Today, stories persist in new forms as a primary means of entertaining people, helping them escape and better understand the complexities of modern life.

Long Tale is an exhibition about love—of books, of storytelling and their many contemporary forms.

From children’s books to graphic novels to award-winning animation, celebrated alumni and faculty of the new Alberta University of the Arts share their long and important history of storytelling excellence.

Formerly Alberta College of Art and Design, the University offers a unique programming mix in image based storytelling. As a result, we have many nationally and internationally recognized alumni in illustration, character design and animation.

Our reason for being—the power of story, the sequential arts and helping people escape to another place in their minds.

Participating Artists include:

Carolyn Fisher, Jacqueline Hudon, Tyler Jenkins, Mike Kerr & Renata Liwska, Karen Klassen, Scott Kowalchuk, Kevin Kurytnik & Carol Beecher, Ed Kwong, Jacqui Lee, Tim Mack, Julie Morstad, Sandy Nichols, Riley Rossmo, Kyle Simmers, Genevieve Simms, Kim Smith, Fiona Staples, Jillian Tamaki, Sam Weber, Dave Whamond, and Nicole Wolf.

This exhibition features the work of Alberta University of the Arts alumni and faculty and will be on display and open to the public from March 2nd until June 2019 during ATB business hours.
