February 9, 2018 – Regina Word Up! All Ages Slam featuring Dash Reimer

  

Friday, February 9, 2018 — Regina Word Up! Poetry Slam featuring Dash Reimer

Doors: 7:30 pm, Slam starts at 8 pm; $10 (+GST) or PWYC

Dash Reimer has performed across three continents and still hasn’t settled down. He is an artist and educator working within both hip hop and spoken word communities. He is part of the organizing team for Write Out Loud, Saskatoon’s youth spoken word series, as well as one half of both Compact Disk (a spoken word duo that has gone on to perform their Fringe Show at the Regina Fringe) and Unrelated (a newly formed blues/folk/hip hop duo). He has opened for Buddy Wakefield, been Saskatoon’s slam champion in 2014, toured South Africa and done very intimate performances for family members when peer pressured at family gatherings. He is more than excited (and a little nervous) to share some words with you.

January 18, 2018 – Very Good Painters opening reception

Very Good Painters: a Hague Gallery exhibition

January 15 – February 25, 2018; Opening reception January 18th, 7 pm

Featuring: Jeff Morton, Simon Fuh, Evan Tyler, Annette Nedilenka, and Nic Wilson

A group exhibition aimed at systematically poking fun at the notion of High Art and the traditional gallery system. A cheeky look at the classic fine art dichotomy, these artists utilize subversive art practices, from drawing with sharpies to re-imagining film slides, to understand their place within contemporary art. By referencing the respected art form of painting, each piece seeks to understand how traditional media fail to capture the artist within our continually evolving, visually-overloaded society.’
 
*Note: Some pieces in this exhibition contain content that some may find challenging.  Viewer discretion is advised.*
