Since the Yorkton community has some of the best tattoo studios and artists in the province, the exhibition featured the work of Dennis and Adam from Driller’s Tattoos and Skin City in Yorkton during the presentation of Tattoo, an OSAC touring exhibition curated by Nikole Peters.??
Yorkton residents with tattoos were invited to have them photographed here at the gallery, and the resulting images were projected along with a selection of prints, concurrent with the touring exhibition.
The exhibition opened on February 15th with a special Valentine's Day tattoo, with both Dennis and Adam tattooing live in the gallery.

Regina ceramic artist Ruth Chambers created an installation intended to intervene and interact with the small gallery in the Godfrey Dean in a playful, decorative and architecturally transformative way.
Conservatory is comprised of a group of columns made from cast and hand-built porcelain paper-clay slip, and pieces of branches and vines. The ceramic pieces are constructed out of highly delicate, lattice-like line “drawings” that are wrapped around forms before they become rigid.
