This annual event is bringing together micro brew pubs from Saskatchewan’s three largest cities including Prince Albert’s PABCO brewing company, Saskatoon’s Paddockwood Brewing Company and introducing the nationally acclaimed award-winning Regina warehouse district Bushwakker Brewing Company. Each vendor will be bringing a selection of their current stock to add to previous year’s favourites (Stella Artois, Rolling Rock, Sappero, Crabbie’s Ginger Beer, Red Stripe and Zywiec). New selections from the SLGA include Stiegl Grapefruit Beer, Bin SaskBerry, Little Scrapper IPA, Old Speckled Hen, Guinness and Kronenbourg 1664. North American favourites Pilsner, Coors Light and Molson Canadian will also be available in addition to a wine selection by Copper Moon Shiraz (Red) and Sauvignon Blanc (White) and Arbour Mist (Strawberry and Black Current).

This year’s live main entertainment will feature The Experienced (La Ronge – Rock and Roll), O’Kraut Boys (Prince Albert – Folk), and the Lazy Eights (Prince Albert). Drop in at The Junction where Allan Adam, Elf and the Owl, Liza Brown and Riley Smith will be performing throughout the evening.
The Fry Shack is back this year with beef on bannock, veggie platters and onion rings. There will also be free popcorn and darts in The Cellar.
The Mann Art Gallery is currently raising funds to purchase a Joe Fafard centerpiece public artwork and the first bronze sculpture of our Permanent Collection. This unique artwork depicts a wolf standing six feet tall, nine feet long and weighing in at 1,000 pounds. He will be placed on a stone slab adjacent to the gallery doors at the entrance of the Diefenbaker Bridge.
The Artist - Joe Fafard
Born in Ste. Marthe, Saskatchewan, Joe Fafard received his BFA from the University of Manitoba and his MFA from Pennsylvania State University. After teaching at the University of Regina from 1968 – 1974, he opened his foundry, Julienne Atelier Inc., in Pense, SK.
Joe Fafard is arguably Saskatchewan’s most well-known artist. His achievements include the Order of Canada, the Architectural Institute of Canada Allied Arts Award, the Saskatchewan Order of Merit, the National Prix Montfort, the Lieutenant Governor’s Saskatchewan Centennial Medal for the Arts, a Saskatchewan Arts Board Lifetime Achievement Award, CTV Citizen of the Year and most recently Canada Post has chosen three of his sculptures for the Art Canada Series.

|Derek Wenning, Danielle Siemens and Cynthia Blanchette at the Snelgrove - Gordon Snelgrove Art Gallery, Room 191, Murray Building, U of S|
|February 26, 2014 to March 7, 2014|
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.”

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!
