Upcoming Exhibits

Discovery Art Show D.B..jpg 
Discovery Art Show

September 10 - November 26

Celebrating local art and creativity with a display of works by Lloydminster and regional artists.

Submit up to two pieces of your art for the exhibition between Monday, August 15 and Wednesday, September 7.

Hello In There / Hello Out There
October 1 - 22

This exhibition is a curated compilation of artwork created by senior citizens in retirement homes and care facilities in Saskatchewan throughout 2014. The project was specifically designed to address critical issues commonly faced by older adults in our province: feeling included, heard, important, valued and respected as individuals. The exhibit is a powerful collection of memories and artwork that is important to share extensively, stimulating dialogue and honouring this valuable, but often neglected, segment of our society.

 2016-10-20 Catherine Blackburn.jpg My History, My Tradition | Catherine Blackburn & Katherine Boyer
November 1 - 23

My History, My Tradition features the painting and beading works of Catherine Blackburn and the beadings of Katherine Boyer. Both artists examine their heritage and traditions using beading as a material and reference point.

Blackburn combines traditional beadwork and bead patterns in painting to create portraits of family members. She states “I am strongly influenced by beadwork patterns on traditional Dene clothing. My painted work reinterprets these patterns and reintroduces them through floral painted patterns on canvas. Beaded portraiture has allowed for the culmination of all three themes in my work: tradition, family and culture. I enjoy that beadwork has allowed for the union of my contemporary art design and traditional Dene art practice.

Canada: Day 1
December 17 - March 11

Explore first steps, First Impressions and First Experiences as a Newcomer to Canada.

The immigration experience is marked by firsts. The first day in a new country takes shape with an individual's first steps, first impressions and first experiences. Come explore immigrants' diverse personal Day 1 experiences, from Confederation to present day. Visit the bilingual exhibition Canada: Day 1 from December 17 to March 11 at the Lloydminster Cultural & Science Centre.

Newcomers' unique and shared experiences - across time and cultures - are highlighted in a thoughtful way through oral histories, archival images, original artworks, objects and your participation. Explore Day 1 through the themes of Transitions, Arrival, Encounters, Finding Your Way and Reflections. You will be transported back to your first day in Canada, or inspired to imagine yourself in a newcomer's shoes.

Your Canada: Day 1 experience goes beyond the exhibition. Through community outreach programs and learning opportunities in local schools, Canada: Day 1 is sure to spark ongoing conversations and further reflections on collective Canadian identity.

Canada: Day 1 is a travelling exhibition produced by the Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21 as a legacy project of our nation's 150th anniversary in 2017 and supported by RBC Foundation.
