Boom

January 1 to February 23, 2018

boom

Boom seeks to explore through visual media the effects an economic boom has on communities. Rather than critiquing the industries that determine a rapid economic upturn, this exhibition focuses on the human component, the workers and community members themselves. Complex and nuanced, the experience of participating in a boom is not often a straightforward narrative. Higher salaries and available work are driving factors for a rapid population growth. However, with a massive increase in population comes the negative effect of a decrease in quality of life, from lack of housing to failing infrastructure, not to mention possible geographical isolation and the disruption of local culture. Yet, there are positives, increased profits for businesses, increase in jobs, meeting people from diverse cultures, immigration, etc. This exhibition seeks to explore both sides from the standpoint of the people involved a boom.
Organized and toured through OSAC’s Arts on the Move program, curated by Amber Andersen, featuring the works of Valerie Zink and Rick Pelletier.

Education Package

There's an Artist in the Garden

April 1 to May 23, 2018

artist in garden

In an exciting new partnership OSAC’s Arts on the Move program is pleased to present a touring exhibition from the Permanent Collection of the Saskatchewan Arts Board. Curated by OSAC’s Visual & Media Arts Coordinator Zoe Schneider, this exhibition examines the role botany, flora, and gardening play in the work of an artist. Featuring works by Lorne Beug, Donna Kriekle, Russel Yuristy, Richard Holden, Stan Day, Jefferson Little, Phyllis Godwin, George Glenn, June Jacobs, Agnes Gallus, and Brenda Francis Pelkey, this exhibition presents a diverse selection of media including photography, drawing, painting, and fibre. We will examine the correlations found between gardeners and artists- attention to colour, perspective, composition and material, dedication of time, planning and patience.
This exhibition is organized and toured through OSAC’s Arts on the Move program with the help of the staff of the Saskatchewan Arts Board’s Permanent Collection, and is curated by Zoe Schneider, Visual & Media Arts Coordinator, OSAC.
