Violins: A Passion Revealed
October 4 to December 6, 2014
 
Celebrating the handcrafted violins of Yorkton luthier James Alexander Huziak (1906-1996). Nearly 50 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.
