Sandra MacColl's Royal Stanley Pottery Collection
April 25 to May 18, 2016
Sandra MacColl (1943 - 2015) was an important figure in the Yorkton arts and culture community. She volunteered her time and energy extensively and played leading roles in the vitality or creation of many local and regional initiatives. A partial list includes countless hours at the Godfrey Dean Cultural Centre building, Yorkton Public Library, Sunflower Fine Art and Craft Festival, Yorkton Arts Council, and the Godfrey Dean Art Gallery.
Among her many talents, Sandra was a well known antique dealer and collector. Her love of Royal Stanley Jacobean pottery gradually led her to amass what is perhaps the largest collection of Royal Stanley work held by an individual anywhere in the world.
To honour Sandra's memory, the Godfrey Dean is pleased to exhibit the entire collection. The gallery is glowing.

Five Stages
Brianne Urzada (formerly Brianne Pister) and Kiriako Iatridis
April 25 to May 18, 2016
Brianne Pister grew up on a farm near Rhein and attended high school in Yorkton. Shortly after completing a BA in Regina and getting married to Eric Urzada she was diagnosed with stage three cancer. She underwent six rounds of chemotheraphy. It was successful and Brianne has been in remission for several years, enjoying life with her husband and baby.
In the middle of the chemo treatments, Brianne worked with Regina photography Kiriako Iatridis to create a powerful set of images to try and capture the complex range of emotions that come with the grief of cancer and mortality, or indeed any situation of trauma or tragedy: denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance. The images were used to raise funds in Regina for cancer patients, survivors and families.
Opening Reception
Please join us at 2pm on Sunday, May 1st for the opening.
