Oxen to Oil
November 3 – November 30, 2015
                 17 Roughneck.jpg

          Agriculture was the foundation for Saskatchewan’s development – however, as iconic grain elevators are torn down, pump jacks have taken their place as a new fixture of the prairie landscape. Spanning communities across the province, Oxen to Oil is a testimony to this moment of transition. Through photography, Valerie Zink explores the sometimes contradictory relationship between agriculture and the oil economy to portray the complexities that resource-based communities experience. 

Creatures from Sky to Sea
Saturday, January 2 - 
Saturday, January 23

               Containing the works of two artists, Creatures from Sky to Sea was made possible by the Organization of Saskatchewan Art Councils (OSAC). Joseph Anderson and Lisa Robinson have developed a series of fabric sculptures that allude to mythological creatures from sky to sea. Both playful and sinister, the artists use second-hand fabric and/or deconstructed clothing as a way to make links between their fictional animals and the human body.

From Clay to Canvas
Tuesday, January 12 - Saturday, February 20

              From Clay to Canvas is an artistic expression of Rosemarie Stadnyk’s love for landscape and the environment. Her childhood on the prairies was a world of blue violets, buttercup meadows, brilliant sunsets, and rich golden harvests. Her art plays with patterns of light and colour that were influenced by trees, corn fields, and flower gardens. 

               The poetry of the landscape is part of her paintings. Hills, valleys, meadows and skies become lines, colours, and textures that swirl across the canvas. By layering textural elements of gels, pastes, and colour she creates paintings that jump off the canvas.

Optical Illusions
Friday, March 4 - Saturday, April 16

Our eyes see the world around us and our brain interprets this information to provide a perception of reality. Though our visual system is a masterpiece of many years of evolution, we can still be fooled by simple things such as suggestion and over-stimulation. Optical Illusions will explore the science behind how our eyes perceive confusing images and why our brain is known to play tricks on us. Find out why we see things differently from others and how light, colour, contrast, and shape work together to create an illusion. Visitors will be able to view familiar optical illusions and discover new and unique visual activities.
