Back to School Patio: September 4 at 5 pm

The Art of Patio

Back to School: Join us for a special September patio on Thursday September 4.

This summer, Latitude 53 invites members and guests to return to downtown Edmonton's best-loved patio. For eleven weeks, we'll celebrate community with our Patio series and offer visitors a once-a-year opportunity to look into the studios of local artists in Incubator.

Starting June 12, look forward to weekly cocktails, special guest hosts from our community, snacks from some of Edmonton's best spots, beer from Alley Kat, and more in the sun every Thursday from 5–9. And this year, Incubator marks Latitude 53's 40th anniversary by looking back into the past and ahead into the future of Edmonton's art community, pairing established and emerging artists and designers to create five two-week projects:

  • 24 June–5 July: Eleanor Lazare & Zach Ayotte

  • 7-19 July: Robyn Stuart & Matt Whitson

  • 22 July–2 August: Hailley Honcharik & Robert Iveson

  • 5-16 August: Chris Camp & Royden Mills

  • 18 August–6 September: Erin Elizabeth Ross & Jesse Sherburne

From June 12–21, anticipating the start of Incubator, find Kyler Zeleny's photographs of Alberta landscapes in the Community Gallery, to mark the launch of his new book, Out West.
