Current Exhibitions

July 5 – August 31

Welcome to a new digital art exhibition in the medium of augmented reality! The gallery looks a little different than usual, and the spray paint stencil art pieces on the walls are only a fraction of the artwork.

Emerging artist, animator, and digital creator Andrei Feheregyhazi has created four immersive scenes that you can explore with a smart phone or tablet. Follow the instructions—download the app or borrow the gallery’s tablet—and walk through the exhibition to see Bernard the Bird and his friend the walking egg on their epic journey.

Like seeing through a portal or a magic looking glass, your phone or tablet will unlock the mystery of this exhibition.
As interactive art, Andrei Feheregyhazi’s work is inspired by theatre and storytelling, something that he was immersed in from a very early age. Where is Bernard going? How long will it take to get there? This story is told through scenery instead of words, with lighting, motion, and the simple act of walking.

Common throw-away materials like cardboard boxes and spray paint have been carefully crafted and placed to trigger digital animations using one-of-a-kind software programming by the artist himself. In this way, it is a fascinating and unique kind of do-it-yourself handmade art—a mix of puppetry, theatre, printmaking, and animated film, brought to life by the artist’s skill with analogue materials and new digital technologies.
This one-of-a-kind art exhibition is being premiered in Yorkton and was built for our gallery specifically. The project was produced with additional support from ShARed Spaces (Saskatoon), BAM Saskatoon, SK Arts, and the Canada Council for the Arts.

July 8 – August 23

Gallery installation view of exhibition ᑌᐸᑯᐦᑊ/Tepakohp/7
A multi-artist exhibition celebrating the stories and experiences of the many Nations of Indigenous Women living on this land we call Saskatchewan. We share our stories through our art to amplify, inspire and educate about the diverse relationships and transactions we have to this land and each other.

Tepakohp (ᑌᐸᑯᐦᑊ) is the Néhiyaw word for seven and has deep significance for Indigenous communities throughout the world. For example, the Haudenosaunee’s (Iroquois) Seventh Generation Principle is a philosophy where decisions made in the present should result in a sustainable future for seven generations to come.

The exhibition is in honor of the principles of seven and the Indigenous artists that helped shape contemporary Indigenous art in Canada. 

Tepakohp (ᑌᐸᑯᐦᑊ) features 7 Indigenous female artists: Audie Murray, Mary Friesen, Larissa Kitchemonia, Donna the Strange, Stacey Fayant, Brandy Jones, and Melanie Monique Rose. Together they are activated by artists such as Daphne Odjig and held up by the Matriarchs of our community and the teachings received from our ancestors to tell stories through art with hope for future generations.

Presented in partnership with Yorkton Arts Council and the Organization of Saskatchewan Arts Councils.
