Pick Up Sticks, by Bonnie Conly
Opening reception: Thursday, September 22, 7 pm to 9 pm
Exhibition dates: September 15 to October 22, 2016
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.
GALLERY HOURS & INFORMATION
The Hague Gallery is open to the public. However, given the nature of the space, the gallery is not always subject to regular hours of operation. While walk-ins are more than welcome, we recommend for your own convenience that you phone the Creative City Centre office (306-546-5565) beforehand to make sure the gallery will be open when you arrive. If you like to plan ahead, you’re welcome to book a specific date and time to view the gallery. Viewings can be booked over the phone (306-546-5565) or by email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The best time for drop-in visits is typically between the hours of 12pm and 5 pm Monday to Friday, but calling ahead is the only guaranteed way to know the gallery hours for a specific day. The gallery is also open some evenings and weekends when there are other events in the building.
A number of Creative City Centre events, such as music shows and spoken word performances, are held in the Hague Gallery. Please be advised that during these paid events, the gallery is only open with admission to the show. At all other times it is free to view the gallery.
To double down on your art intake by seeing the artwork and a show at the same time, check out our Events page to find out what shows we have coming up!
*The Hague Gallery is located on the 3rd floor of the Creative City Centre at 1843 Hamilton Street in Regina. Unfortunately, there is no elevator, so 2 flights of stairs are the only way up. Fortunately, the art is worth the hike (at least we think so).
