The University of Calgary Press has just published a new book on historical Albertan trailblazer Marion Nicoll, titled “Marion Nicoll: Silence and Alchemy” by Ann Davis, Elizabeth Herbert, Jennifer Salahub, and Christine Sowiak.

About the Book

Marion Nicoll (1909 1985) is a widely acknowledged and important founder of Alberta art and certainly one of a dedicated few that brought abstraction into practice in the province. Her life and career is a story of determination, of dedication to her vision regardless of professional or personal challenges. Nicoll became the first woman instructor hired at the Provincial Institute of Art and Technology (now the Alberta College of Art and Design) and although limited to teaching craft and design, she became a significant mentor for generations of artists. Contributions by Ann Davis, Elizabeth Herbert, and Jennifer Salahub. (www.uofcpress.com)
