April 19 – Quick & Dirty: Trade Secrets!

Tuesday April 19 , 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm, Free!  All ages welcome. Cash bar for those with valid ID. QD 4 poster

This April, Regina’s Artist Trading Cards (ATC) Collective celebrates its 13th anniversary. This installment of Quick & Dirty will feature several short, sweet, and completely unboring artist talks by its members.
Who gives their art awaySounds crazy, right? Maybe one time; but for 13 years? Meet the Regina-based members of a global art movement that got its start when a couple of Fluxus Mail-art trash poets met over beers one night in Calgary, and dreamed up an epic, international art performance that is still going.

Local artists Sylvia Ziemann, Nicolle Nugent, Margaret Bessai, Sharon Eisbrenner and Gerda Osteneck invite you to an evening of lightning-speed talks, true confessions about an addictive open-studio practice—and these artists aren’t all talk: Stick around for a drink, and make some art cards with them! Never made an ATC? We supply the basic materials–bring your favourite art stuff– All ages welcome.

Presented in partnership with Dunlop Art Gallery & Creative City Centre. [Read more…]

Erik Mehlsen (aka Del Suelo)

Erik Mehlsen (aka Del Suelo)

2:00pm – 4:00 pm
By donation ($10 suggested)*
Facilitated by Erik Mehlsen (a.k.a. Del Suelo)

Are you a guitarist who has been playing for a while, but doesn’t know anything about theory or improvisation? Or maybe you have some theory up your sleeve but are in need of some guitarists to practice with? Maybe you like the company of cool people enjoying some music on a relaxed Sunday afternoon.
At the Sunday guitar hangout, musician and author Erik Mehlsen(aka Del Suelo) will cover some basic music theory and explain how it applies to creativity on the guitar. Following this 30 minute lesson, guitarists will be encouraged to stick around and jam with each other, trading tips and insights on what they’ve just learned. The intention of the workshop is to build a community of guitarists and provide a space for those wishing to improve their craft.  If there is a high level of interest, this may become a monthly event.
*Your donations will go to paying the workshop & jam facilitator for his time as well as the venue fees.
