Scott Nicholson Fine Arts Corporate Installation “The Four Seasons”, Regina Centre Crossing, Regina, SK

"The Four Seasons" is a collection of four violin concerti orchestrated by the Italian composer Antonio Vivaldi, each of which reveals a musical nuance to each season of the calendar year. The concerti were composed around 1721 and were published in Amsterdam in 1725. The concerti are the most recognizable of Vivaldi's compositions. Unconventional for the time period, Vivaldi published the concerti with accompanying poems, defining what characterizes each season his concerti is proposing to inspire. This presents one of the earliest and refined illustrations of what was to be defined as "program music", or, music with a narrative element. 

The Artists of Scott Nicholson Fine Arts have created works that have encapsulated the musical nuances of Vivaldi's orchestration with strong lyrical artistic compositions that interpret the four seasons, the crispness of freshly fallen snow, the summer swaying of the hayfield in the prairie breeze, the vibrant palette of autumn, and the first vestige of spring in the arboreal forest. Each artist has merged the written word, music, and the artistic narrative into revealing concerti of the poetic experience of the arts. 

The artists who have created works for this Regina Centre Crossing Corporate Installation are: Mark Sexton, Regina, SK., Jennifer Ganshorn, Elbow, SK., Dwila Nixon, Regina, SK., Madison Pascal, Regina, SK., Carolyn Joyce, Regina, SK., Shirley Guest, Regina, SK., Darlene Gate, Regina, SK., Brenda Tollefson, Emerald Park, SK., Shelley K. Page, Regina, SK., Marianne Smisko, Regina, SK., Janice Stefan, Regina, SK., Bonnie McBride, Regina, SK., Holly Ripplinger, Regina, SK., Mary-Ann Dubé, Regina, SK., Linda Jean Karst, Regina, SK., Lucy Cobb, Regina, SK., and Dianne Mursell, Regina, SK.

Intersections - Saskatchewan Craft Council

Intersections - Saskatchewan Craft Council

  • Google Calendar ICS

Opening Reception - Friday December 8, 7 - 9 p.m.

The Saskatchewan Craft Council is pleased to present Intersections, an exhibition of work by artist Shelley Miller.

Saskatchewan born, Montreal-based artist Shelley Miller works in public spaces, creating site-specific projects in both ephemeral and permanent materials. In this exhibition, Miller uses the quilt as a visual and conceptual reference, creating geometric formations made up of people from Saskatchewan communities. She photographs the ensuing design from an aerial perspective. Miller’s goal is to form connections:

“I believe it’s the people in a community who make up the true urban fabric of a place… people and the colour of their clothes creates geometric formations, recalling traditional patchwork designs common to each geographical area. The aim of this project is as much about celebrating craft traditions as it is about bringing people together.”

Join us at a public reception on Friday, December 8th from 7 to 9 pm. There is a public artist talk on Saturday, December 9th at 2 pm. All are welcome!

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 15

1:00 p.m. - Counter Monuments
On Canada's 150th anniversary of Confederation, governments, organizations, and individuals across the country have marked the occasion in a variety of ways. For some it is a celebration, but for others it is a reminder of a colonial past and its ongoing legacy. Official monuments memorialize and legitimize official narratives, neglecting - and at their worst, denying - the multitude of perspectives that truly define any historical moment. 
Presenters: Audrey Dreaver, Adam Martin, Sherry Farrell Racette
Moderator: Belinda Harrow
2:15 p.m. - Just in Case: Protecting Your Art Legacy
Just in Case was started by Harold Empey, a retired executive. Harold created a presentation and manual that outlines many questions to consider just in case something happens. In the case of artists, the list becomes more complex. Are you preparing your legacy? If you don’t, someone else will have to make these decisions for you.
Presenter: Harold Empey
Sponsored by the Saskatchewan Craft Council, Professional Practices for Artists
Artist Talks
3:30 p.m. - Cam Forrester (main stage)
4:00 p.m. - Gabriela Garcia-Luna (Slate Fine Art Gallery booth)
4:30 - 6:30 - Happy Hour! Music from E-Major, Drink Specials
7:00 p.m. - Denyse Klette (main stage)
7:30 p.m. - Brent Parkin (Saskatchewan Craft Council booth)
8:00 p.m. - Martha Cole (Assiniboia Gallery booth)

SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 16

11:30 a.m. - Technology and the Future of Art Commerce
Join us for a discussion of the shifting relationships between artists, galleries, and new technologies. Thomas Archer from SaskInteractive will highlight the latest developments in technology that are poised to disrupt the way we make and experience art, as well as market and buy it. 
Moderator: Thomas Archer
Sponsored by SaskInteractive
1:00 p.m. - The Artist's Right to Resale Royalties
Artists should be paid for their work. Period. If you’re a supporter of the arts in Saskatchewan, you probably agree. CARFAC and RAAV have been working for many years to introduce legislation for an Artist’s Resale Right (droit de suite), a royalty paid when an art work is resold through a commercial gallery, auction house, agent, or dealer. Session participants discuss the pros and cons, and the impact of an artist’s resale right on artists, collectors, galleries, auction houses, and the art market in general.
Presenters: Grant McConnell, Joe Fafard, Ryan Mayberry
Moderator: Dr. Terrence Heath
Sponsored in part by CARFAC Sask
2:15 p.m. - On Collecting Art
Collecting art is more than just filling spaces on walls. Collectors are as varied and unique as the works of art that they collect. Some do it for love, and others for money. Some collect with an eye towards posterity, while others make compulsive choices. Whether you’re a first-time buyer or a person who speaks confidently about your “collection”, this discussion is sure to offer something of interest. It offers practical advice and stories of the ones that got away to discussions about individual collecting practices and sneak peeks into some of the province’s most noteworthy private collections. 
Presenters: Kim Jones, Laurie Nenson, Pam Klein
Moderator: Kimberley Fyfe
Sponsored by Saskatchewan Craft Council, Professional Practices for Artists
Artist Talks
3:30 p.m. - Val Moker (main stage)
4:00 p.m. - Victor Cicansky (Slate Fine Art Gallery booth)
4:30 p.m. - Wilf Perreault (main stage)

SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 17

1:00 p.m. - Looking at Art
Saskatchewan artist Joe Fafard once commented to Dr. Heath that the viewer of his art completes the work. Each viewer, however, is a wild card in responding to art work. Viewers' reactions cannot be known prior to their actually seeing the work. The viewer may experience an emotional sensation of one degree or another, while the art work receives many and individual responses from each viewer. In this talk and the following discussion, Dr. Heath explores the experience of “Looking at Art.”
Presenter: Dr. Terrence Heath
Sponsored in part by Prairie Fundraising
2:15 p.m. - Saskatchewan Innovators: Nik Semenoff, Waterless Lithography and other Non-Toxic Printmaking Techniques
Saskatchewan people have always been known for their entrepreneurial and inventive spirit, and Saskatchewan artists are no different. Nik Semenoff, Honorary Professor Emeritus at the University of Saskatchewan, is the inventor of Waterless Lithography, a non-toxic easy to use printmaking technology that achieves the look of traditional stone lithography without compromising health and safety. Chaired by Saskatchewan artist and printmaker Paul Constable, in this session, Semenoff shares the story of how and why he developed this unique and revolutionary process. Following the talk, Semenoff will demonstrate some of his innovative techniques.
Presenters: Nik Semenoff, Paul Constable
Artist Talk
3:30 p.m. - Jay Kimball
