Upcoming Exhibitions

 

   

Artwork by Mindy Yan MillerLegacy: A Swift Current History of Visual Art

January 10 to March 1, 2015

Five full-size round-bales sprawl across the gallery floor as if dumped there from a production machine. The large volumes of harvested product bundled for efficient handling are not the hay we might expect. “Feed” may at once refer to sustenance for livestock, or the digital output register of the stock market or the “fashion feed” of the contemporary glamour industry.
Organized by AGSC in partnership with the MJM&AG, Curator Heather Smith

 

Artwork by David TuttleDavid Tuttle: Pattern Forming

March 7 to April 26, 2015

Swift Current artist David Tuttle doesn’t fit the common pattern for art production. Rather than following a single path of art making throughout his career David, over the past 20 years moves simultaneously between five very different series of art media and themes. This solo exhibition lets us explore each theme enjoying the differences and perhaps finding the connections.
Organized by AGSC, Curator Kim Houghtaling.

Jeffery J. Spalding: Ghosts and AngelsJeffery J. Spalding: Ghosts and Angels

November 7, 2015 to January 3, 2016

Through the use of chance and happenstance Canadian Artist, Jeffery Spalding has created exciting and unexpected expressive abstractions. Working with Novak Graphics, Spalding uses the off cast printmaking materials and found colours gathered from the works of other artists in a very specific printing process designed to ensure the development of almost random composition making. The results have a very dynamic fifties abstraction meets Pop art vibe.
Organized by Art Gallery of Swift Current with the support of Novak Graphics, Admiral Saskatchewan.
