Sue and Winnie
April 4 to May 12, 2017
Artist reception 2pm Sunday, April 23

Vera Saltzman’s Sue and Winnie is a collection of 14 portraits of women over 40 with dolls they cherished in their childhood. The collection won the Silver Award portfolio prize in the 2016 Saskatchewan Prairie Light Photography Festival.

The Daily Mail in the UK reviewed Sue and Winnie when it was printed in portfolio: "Photographer Vera Saltzman explores the transience of life and the inevitability of death through the eyes of the women, who, driven by nostalgia of their lost childhoods, have kept their dolls for decades: sitting on a shelf, buried in a box in a closet, locked in an attic. The toys, some weathered from years of affection, others still in perfect condition, but all a product of their time, signify a past that is familiar yet unsettling."

These works were printed in portfolio but never before exhibited in a gallery setting. 

 

 

Fabulous Fibre at the Godfrey Dean!
Fibre Art Network: On the Wind
April 12 to May 4, 2017
 
The Fibre Art Network collective exhibition "On the Wind" features 33 works by artists across Western Canada. A virtuosic display of fabric technique, skill and imagination.
 
The Fibre Art Network (FAN) is a cooperative of self-defined artists based in Western Canada. The cooperative was organized in 1999 and is committed to promoting fibre as an art form and each other as artists. FAN members come from Western Canada - British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, the Yukon and Northwest Territories - and share their learning and news through a website and newsletter. 
 
Join us at 2pm Sunday April 23 for the artist reception.
