Estevan Art Gallery & Museum - Exhibitions, Events and Summer Activities

Location: 118-4th Street, Estevan, SK

Two brand new exhibitions... and a third on the way!

Shoshana Coodin, Nature's Detail
Beading embroidery is the medium I connect with most. It connects me to my body, my hands, to a history of craftspeople that came before me. It connects me to my grandmother, whose sewing kit and collection of buttons and beads I would explore as a child. It is a medium with a connection to history, nature and time. (Shoshana Coodin, 2014)

Evelyn Johnson, Hooked
Estevan's cultural landscape would look a lot different if it weren't for the dedicated work of Evelyn Johnson. The recipient for numerous accolades for her contributions to the arts, she has spent many years tirelessly promoting culture in the city. She is also an artist, and the EAGM is thrilled to exhibit examples of her rug-hooking practice. The works on display present pastoral landscape scenes, and contemporary, abstract patterning.

Join us on May 23rd at 7pm for the artist reception, where we will also celebrate the opening of Hide, featuring work by David Diviney and Jamie Wright. Jamie will be giving a talk on his work.

Dunlop Art Gallery 2014 Upcoming Exhibitions

Location: Various locations

Wednesday Lupypciw: ALLIES HONOUR YOU

Victoria Park
Saturday, June 14, 2014, 3:30 pm
Curated by Blair Fornwald, Assistant Curator
Presented in partnership with Queen City Pride

is an experimental noise event and "living sculpture" conceived and conducted by Calgary artist, Wednesday Lupypciw. A group of women, each with their own drum kit, will occupy Victoria Park, forming a triangular locus as Lupypciw leads them through three intense sessions of drumming and chanting. ALLIES HONOUR YOU is a public declaration of feminist alliance with queer communities, claiming a space, sonically and psychically much larger than its physical dimensions. Both riotous and utopian, the work celebrates the radical potential of collectivized action, ritual, and rock 'n' roll.

Tragedy Plus Time

Sonny Assu, BGL, Michel de Broin, Jason Cawood, Mark Clintberg, Troy Coulterman, Robyn Cumming, Thirza Cuthand, Keren Cytter, Kim Dorland, Emily Vey Duke and Cooper Battersby, Erica Eyres, Hannah Jickling and Helen Reed, Alison S. M. Kobayashi and Christopher Allen, Divya Mehra, Christine Negus, Craig Francis Power, Joshua and Zakary Sandler, and Walter Scott

Curated by Blair Fornwald, Jennifer Matotek, and Wendy Peart

Central Gallery, Mediatheque, and Sherwood Gallery
July 4 - August 27, 2014

"Comedy is tragedy plus time."

This statement, attributed variously to Steve Allen, Carol Burnett, Lenny Bruce, and Woody Allen articulates the transformative and political dimensions of comedy and humour. Humour acts as a corrective, as a balm, as a way of softening unpleasant truths and assuaging fears. This exhibition brings together Canadian and international emerging, mid-career and senior artists from across artistic disciplines and cultural backgrounds, whose work explores the relationship between the tragic, and the comic. This large-scale exhibition will occupy both Central and Sherwood Galleries, with additional work in Dunlop's Mediatheque and offsite.
