Stray
November 1 – December 15
Closing reception: Thursday December 15th 7-9pm

Chisholm’s new work is motivated by the material culture of Estevan, a once-flush oil town struggling through bust-times. Much of the evidence of this waning boom was gathered from social media sites, in this case Garage Sale Estevan, where locals offer previously enjoyed goods for sale. Chisholm’s photographic interrogation of this cultural milieu took her through Estevan’s back alleys, vacant industrial areas, and abandoned half-constructed buildings. Appropriately, she turned her own Instagram account into a record of her process.

Through this work, Chisholm attempts to unite two seemingly disparate roles: the artist and the transient worker. Many in both camps rightfully understand themselves as strays, their chosen career paths demanding of them a nomadic existence. Though all this wandering and wondering impedes the option of putting down roots, it offers a more developed understanding of place(s). This may be reward enough, for many working artists, rig workers, and the littlest hobo, “Every stop I make, I’ll make a new friend / Can’t stay for long, just turn around and I’m gone again.”

Diccon Olivier: Beautifully Broken

Diccon_Beautifully Broken
January 4 – February 26, 2016
Reception: Friday January 8, 7-9pm

I attended St. Thomas More College, receiving a Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy in 1989. I took my first art class seven years ago and have not stopped painting since. Much of my work focuses on nature and reflects my childhood growing up on a farm in Northern Saskatchewan. I paint because it quells the urgency of understanding and because I love experimenting and playing with colour. I am a member of Artists Drawn Together, a group that was formed in 2014 in Saskatoon.
