Lynn Malin: This celebrated Edmonton artist moves with ease between abstract expressionist still life and pure, mixed-media abstraction — and her new exhibition Fresh certainly shows this range off. Her still-life paintings have a bit of a Van Gogh vibe: earthy yet bright; recognizable objects, but shaped with enough palpable emotion that they seem remembered through a filter of emotion rather than looked at directly. The newer works are black and white on Lexan, greyscale almost-maps, perhaps prairie flyovers. Feel to interpret them on your own, or just appreciate Malin’s confident use of contrast and texture. It’s sweet work, and besides the afternoon opening Saturday, a Ladies Night talk with the artist is happening 7 p.m. Thursday, register at peterrobertsongallery.com.

Lunar eclipse: Weather and cloud dependant, between 7:31 p.m. Sunday and 12:51 a.m. Monday, a red-moon, lunar eclipse will be visible in Edmonton skies as our main satellite passes through Earth’s shadow. Though no special equipment is necessary to view the nearby celestial event, Telus World of Science and the Royal Astronomical Society will have telescopes set up in Coronation Park (11425 142 St.). If you can’t make it there, just watch the skies with an unobstructed view of the southeastern horizon and your favourite David Bowie playlist on repeat.
