Daisy Chains to Polynucleotide Chains: Collage Activity
Date and time

The building is located on a private drive West of Elphinstone Street, further West from the Senior's Centre. The closest bus stop is Elphinstone Street @ College Avenue.

Inspired by artist Rachel Broussard's lacy collages that speculatively reorganize the phylogenetic tree, children are invited to image new hybrids of plant and animal in this collage activity.
Cut vivid flowers, fish, birds and mammals from scientific textbooks and nature magazines, then paste them together to create festive chains, while speculating on the purpose of colouration, inherited traits, the ways plants and animals interact, and human uses of plants.
This art activity for children who can use scissors (independently or with the assistance of a parent or guardian) is guided by Art Gallery of Regina staff. Children can take home their multi-species chain to decorate their rooms.
This activity is offered in conjunction with the Neil Balkwill Civic Arts Centre.
Art Gallery of Regina
The Art Gallery of Regina is a visionary in contemporary art programming that reflects our time and place within an engaged and diverse community.
Our mission is to support artists and engage audiences through contemporary art programming.
Supporting artists involves supporting artists' vision and voices, from every level of Saskatchewan's cultural ecology, by:
-seeking out and encouraging artists with group and solo exhibition opportunities;
-hosting captivating exhibitions in which gallery visitors can locate their interests and experiences;
-providing professional development opportunities;
-providing supportive experiences for exhibiting artists;
-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.
We practice these values in our planning, decision-making and behaviour:
Contemporary – We exhibit contemporary art that has meaning to our diverse communities, showing work that is relevant to our time and place.
Accountability -- We function with high standards of operations and accountability that support AGR's sustainability.
Community Engagement-- We are inviting, welcoming, and supportive to the public and artists while continually expanding our community both regionally and locally.
