nevermore - Mann Art Gallery, Prince Albert
April 3, 2014 to May 25, 2014
Carri McKinnon & Corinne Trebick-Gibson
April 4 – May 25, 2014
Reception:  Friday, April 4, 2014 | 7:00pm


 
Curated by: Griffith Aaron Baker
 
Carri McKinnon, silken, sad, uncertain, rustling, 2010 | 18" x 18" | Mixed Media on Panel
 
The exhibition, ‘nevermore’ is influenced by the writings of Edgar Allan Poe, however do not illustrate Poe’s writing in any way.  Instead McKinnon and Trebick-Gibson’s pieces are based on potential imagined visual imagery with concentration on allusions to broader themes of mythology, history, memory, and the unknown.  A sense of atmosphere, mystery and mood paired with meticulous surface preparation and mixed media allow the viewer to experience the psychology of timelessness in improbable environments.  These places do not exist in reality and are not defined by time. Instead they are the remnants of emotion, desire and uncertainty.
 
Carri McKinnon (Regina, SK)
Carri spent her teen and university years in Thunder Bay, Ontario and moved to Saskatchewan in 1991.  For the past ten years her ‘day job’ has been to teach Arts to students in grades six to twelve in the public school system, first in Oxbow and now in Regina.  When not creating her own art or teaching Carri spends time acting in live theatre and belly dancing, among other artistic interests.
Carri has participated in OSAC and Visions Art Guild group exhibitions, and has had solo shows in Regina, Estevan and a touring show with OSAC.
 
Corrine Trebick-Gibson (Estevan, SK)
Largely a self-taught artist, Corinne Trebick-Gibson grew up on a  farm near Canora, Saskatchewan.  She has been working as an Emergency Medical Technician in Estevan, SK since 1991.
She has continued to refine her art training over the years by attending numerous art retreats and workshop sessions with instruction by professional artist facilitators.  Although her primary medium is oil paint, she often incorporates encaustic, charcoal and other media.

The Exhibition
Relative-Connections is an exploration of collaborative art production between artists couples.  Some artists couple's individual artworks mirror and evolve off of one another, linking through aesthetics, subject matter and/or material.  Other artist couples have independent practices that share little to no commonalities.  Relative-Connections inquires on the outcome of couples who have taken on the challenge of creating a communal artwork that incorporates characteristics from their independent practices.  This quirky exhibition is as diverse as the individuals and couples who have created the works and includes everything from traditional pottery to video installation.

Gordon snelgrove

March 3 – 7, 2014
Reception: Friday, March 7, 7 – 10pm


Derek Wenning calls himself a storyteller. Using the conventions of comics, animation and
fantasy action art, Wenning works like a Surrealist. He writes: “I let the work develop as if it
were not mine, but as if I was discovering it myself for the first time.” “Stories of
existentialism, interior and exterior journey [and] self-exploration” are the grist for his mill.

Danielle Siemens uses acrylic and charcoal for their speed of application. And indeed, speed
is the ambiguous leitmotif for this body of drawings and paintings. While one “running
figure,” conveys joy, another evokes dread. More than this, Siemens is interested in how these
scenes of action position viewers and expose their own relative stasis.

Cynthia Blanchette’s painting is a provocation to re-channel the conventions of beauty. Is
the “male figure less appealing?” she asks as she ponders feminine stereotypes. “[I want to]
create space within the sociological imagination for strong, ambitious, and aggressive female
artists, and to throw chaos to the ideal of the muse.”

Belle Plain

February's After Dark

Belle Plaine joins Estevan Comprehensive School's Face in the Space for a night of Jazz and Pop!

Belle Plaine's first full-length album, Notes from a Waitress is a throwback to the vocal jazz of the 1960's. Think Peggy Lee and Julie London; smart lyrics paired with a smokin' band.

If Patsy Cline and Blossom Dearie had a lovechild she would sing like Belle Plaine. Belle's voice is old-timey and jazzy. It has twang, crystal bells and swing. You listen to this voice, and all of a sudden your cheatin' heart has a very dry martini in hand, and you're hearing something both timeless and brand new. Kelly Jo Burke of CBC's SoundXchange

Face in the Space is a jazz ensemble composed of students, led by teacher Kyle Whitehead. This group is sure to entertain you whilst showcasing their talent! You won't want to miss supporting these up-and-coming musicians.

Friday, February 28th. Doors open at 8pm and tickets are $10.

After Dark is sponsored by Southern Plains Co-operative Ltd.

Celebrating 65 Years at the WDM - WDM - Saskatoon, 2935 Lorne Avenue, Saskatoon, SK
January 9, 2014 to April 30, 2014

The Saskatchewan Western Development Museum celebrates 65 years in 2014

To help celebrate the 65th anniversary of the Western Development Museum, we encourage people to visit their local WDM this year.  Those celebrating their 65th birthday in 2014 will receive free admission on their birth date, as well as a birthday present from the Museum!  On April 6, 2014 (the Sunday after the actual anniversary date of April 2nd), admission to the four WDMs will be only 65 cents.

So much has changed in the world since the Western Development Museum began serving as the keeper of Saskatchewan's collective heritage 65 years ago.  When it was officially created in 1949 by provincial legislation, the WDM was inspired in part by the need to preserve large numbers of abandoned farm machinery before it was scavenged for scrap metal recycling after the Second World War.  Can you imagine how different the Museum would look if it was being founded today?
 
Like most organizations, the WDM is affected by both global and regional trends, as well as by changes within our own organization.  External trends include globalization, changing demographics (aging population, influx of newcomers to Saskatchewan, growing First Nations and Metis populations), and new technologies.
 
With the pace of change accelerating, how will the WDM look even a decade from now? For one thing, the Museum is changing its focus for collecting artifacts. The WDM is now seeking items that reflect the culture, social life, innovation, and economy of post-Second World War Saskatchewan, particularly during the 1950s, 1960s, and beyond.
 
"People are visiting and supporting WDM in droves, and our staff and volunteers are working really hard to keep the Museum vibrant and exciting," said Joan Champ, Executive Director.  "As a result, our attendance has increased; we have opened exciting new permanent and travelling exhibits throughout the system; we have forged some terrific new partnerships; and more and more new Canadians are visiting the four WDMs."
 
The WDM has so many achievements to celebrate and so much to look forward to.  Thanks to all our visitors for supporting the Western Development Museum in the past, present, and future!
