Kitchen Table Conversations with Vera & Sue

DATE: Saturday, September 23

TIME: 2-4 PM

LOCATION: Art Gallery of Regina, 2420 Elphinstone St.


REGISTER for 15-minute sessions:

Saltzman and Bland, white settler people living in rural Saskatchewan, are concerned about the disappearance of remnants of wildland and marshes that have been turned to agricultural productivity as family farms give way to industrial farming practices in the province. These small pieces of "wasteland" are valuable habitats for many animal species.

A kitchen table is a non-intimidating place for people to share thoughts and experiences about the landscape we share. While conversations are a powerful but intangible way of reflecting on changing human use of and relationships with the land and loss of species, the artists also engage people with tangible objects and activities to consider these issues.

Repeating the motif of a buffalo silhouette used in their artworks, the artists invite gallery visitors to create a buffalo postcard, which participants can also place in the landscape. The activity uses natural cardstock and a custom stamp and is accessible to all ages and abilities. The artists instruct participants to cut the buffalo from the card, creating a window through which to view the landscape. (An accompanying adult should assist small children.) The empty outline serves as a vivid reminder of a once-plentiful animal now mainly gone from the lands around us.

This event is presented with support from the Neil Balkwill Civic Arts Centre.

providing open access opportunities for amateur and recreational artists; and

facilitating connections between artists and artists and the larger community.

Engaging audiences includes attracting, involving, inspiring and creating community, and a sense of identity and place, through:

free admission to all exhibitions;

affordably-priced and accessible public workshops;

free artist talks and opportunities to connect with professional artists; and

thought-provoking and accessible didactic materials.

Innvovative and collaborative partnerships with community and arts organizations to expand outreach and diversity.
