July Events 2021 insta.png

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.

  • gallery visitors wear medical masks

Online Discussion: How Artists and Biologists See Plants Differently

This online discussion forum compares how artists represent plants and compares them with specimens from the George F. Ledingham Herbarium's collection.

Four artists (Heather Shillinglaw, Laurel Terlesky, Rachel Broussard, Alyssa Ellis) for whom the complex biology of plants is a subject will show and discuss examples of their work. Artists will discuss why they value the plants they depict in their artworks, how their method of representation reveals unseen or unknown qualities of their botanical subjects and their perspectives on the role of the artist.

DATES

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.

Publication free to read online or download.

Aganetha Talk.png

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.

KC Adams (Winnipeg), Carole Epp (Saskatoon) and Brenda Wolf (Regina) share their ceramics practices in conversation.
