The Art of Uli

Hosted by Nina Haggerty Centre for the Arts

A celebration of our 2021 Artist of the Year, Uli Rossier October 4 – November 6, 2021

For nearly twenty years, Rossier has been an esteemed fixture in Edmonton’s visual arts community. Her intuitive, playful lines evoke the joy of nature and daily life. She typically works in ink and oil pastels and considers her work to be abstract representations of the seasons and her own mood.

Rossier is a prolific painter and has exhibited her work widely, both locally and internationally. Her work has been acquired by the Alberta Foundation for the Arts’ permanent collection and has been featured as large-scale reproductions in the Edmonton Convention Centre and on billboards. Her highly distinctive style has many fans and she always recognizes her own work with delight.

The Nina is honoured to be part of Rossier’s artistic career and to celebrate her as the 2021 Artist of the Year.
