A Pea Can Be Chopped Up and Reassembled Into The Sun: Phomohobes, Paul Robles, Gerry Ruecker, Rhayne Vermette
essay by exhibition curator Sandee Moore
What do the magician, the mathematician and the collage artist all have in common? Exhibition curator Sandee Moore connects how these three figures cut up and reassemble bits of the world to create more than what they've started with. She carves up the exhibition into an imagined set of artists' materials - the cut, the rabbit/duck, the frame, infinity, the impossible - and compares the magical generative role of collage to a geometric theorem that proves that cutting and rearranging can increase the volume of matter.

Between Us is a long-term creative relationship – part mentorship, part collaboration – connecting senior artist Aganetha Dyck with selected artists, beekeepers and honeybees in Regina, Yorkton, Swift Current, Estevan and Prince Albert, Saskatchewan.
Between Us refers to the distances and differences between us, especially evident during social isolation due to COVID-19. The project title also refers to the wondrous experiences that bind us together; "us" includes humans and non-human collaborators.
The Art Gallery of Regina has partnered with Black In Sask on a visual arts-focused second installment of their ‘Black In' panel series.
We are thrilled to share the practices of Black artists living in Saskatchewan, the paths they’ve followed in their artistic careers, their personal experiences of blackness, and how these experiences inform their art.

The Art Gallery of Regina invited the public to experience bees as conscious and creative agents with its Culture Days activities. Running from September 24 – October 24, 2021, Culture Days offered fun and engaging new creative and cultural activities – both in-person and digital - suited to all ages and abilities.
The AGR’s Culture Days activities are inspired by our multi-year creative relationship – part mentorship, part collaboration – connecting senior artist Aganetha Dyck with selected artists, beekeepers and honeybees in Regina, Yorkton, Swift Current, Estevan and Prince Albert, Saskatchewan. The artworks resulting from this sustained creative collaboration will be exhibited at the Art Gallery of Regina in 2023, then travel to various partner galleries throughout Saskatchewan and beyond.
Aganetha Dyck, who became an artist while living in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan, has been creating artwork assisted by honeybees and beekeepers for over 20 years. Dyck shares her experiences and examples of artwork created in collaboration with honeybees in this online artist’s talk, in discussion with AGR curator Sandee Moore.
Dyck’s Mennonite heritage and its emphasis on thrift is a source of inspiration for her artwork in which she commonly gives new life to broken and discarded items. Famously, she has reshaped wool sweaters into tiny, shrunken effigies, used family pickling recipes to preserve buttons from the sewing factory that occupied her studio before it was a space for artists and placed hand-crocheted doilies and broken porcelain figurines into beehives to be “mended” by the bees. Dyck’s artworks reframe bees as conscious agents who are creative and multisensorial communicators. While empathy for these insects will not be new to beekeepers, Dyck’s artworks reveal possibilities for the public to dismiss their fear and instead experience empathy and caring for all pollinators.
