Violins: A Passion Revealed

Held Over Until December 17th

 
People are still coming to see the violin exhibition, so we're keeping it open until Wednesday, December 17 for one final week! 
 
Celebrating the handcrafted violins of Yorkton luthier James Alexander Huziak (1906-1996) over 40 instruments are on exhibit, along with specialty tools and forms used in the art, science and craft of making a violin.
 
James Huziak made his first violin in the 1930s, drawn by his love of the instrument and the music it made. He continued to pursue his passion, gradually building more and more until his retirement in 1970, when be began to produce consistently. Throughout the 1970s and 80s, right up until he passed away in 1996, Huziak crafted up to three instruments a year, consistently striving to make the ideal musical instrument.
 
It's a remarkable body of work, and a rare opportunity to see this many violins by a single maker, gathered together for what could be the last time before they're dispersed by the family.
 
The opening reception 2pm, Saturday Oct. 4 was celebrated by 300 people! Hope you can make it to see the exhibition.
 

 


 

Surreal Saskatchewan

 
November 1 to December 17, 2014
 
Surreal Saskatchewan might be the best touring exhibition from the OSAC Arts on the Move program that we've hosted at the Godfrey Dean Art Gallery. Paintings by seven diverse and intriguiging Saskatchewan artists that range from Prairie Gothic to slightly abstract, from dreams to fanciful landscapes. Curated by Belinda Harrow from the permanent collection of the Saskatchewan Arts Board.
 
This exhibition also has a really great education package for school tour groups, let us know if you're interested. We've had a steady stream of enthusiastic students who enjoy the scavenger hunts that are tailored for different age groups.
