Join us for the first visual art exhibition of our 2016-2017 season, as we present a series of 20 works by Saskatoon artist Bonnie Conly.
With a Bachelor of Education degree (1983), a BA (1997) and an Honours Degree in Art Studio and Art History (2011) all from the University of Saskatchewan, Conly’s work involves a variety of mediums and approaches, including painting, photography, drawing, sculpture, video and sound installation. The works presented in this exhibition are a series of drawings of water towers primarily using water soluble ink on Arches paper.
Recently, Conly has participated in artist residencies in Saskatchewan and Nova Scotia, studied sculpture with Leslie Potter at the Emma Lake retreat, and undertaken a CARFAC mentorship with artist Alison Norlen. In 2015 Conly was Artist in Residence at Grasslands National Park.
