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.*

The audio track may be aired on CBC Saskatchewan, and the video will be posted on the Creative City Centre’s YouTube Channel. It will be available for each artist to use as they see fit, to promote their careers, upcoming performances, single releases, grant applications or whatever they need.

Season 2 – Week #24: An Empty Room with Nick Faye – “Kansas”

With Nick Faye’s performance of his song “Kansas”, season 2 of the Empty Room series comes to a close.  Nick Faye & The Deputies are a band from the deepest depths of the Canadian Prairies (Regina, SK). They make music that sticks to your ribs, like a big plate of perogies and sour cream. They will be heading into the studio in November to record their third full length album.  For more information go to: www.nickfayedeputies.com.

With all 24 videos from this season now on YouTube, you can watch these 12 talented Saskatchewan artists perform anytime you want!  There is so much talent in our home province and we’re grateful to SaskMusic and CBC Radio for helping us share some of that talent with all of you through this series.

You’ve seen the videos of these 12 talented artists, but let’s not forget about the talented man behind the scenes – artistic director for the series Brent Nielsen!  We’d like to give a big thanks to Brent for all the hard work he has put into the series over the last two years.  As camera man, sound tech, editor, and creator of the series, Brent really does it all!

Thank you to everyone who has been following the series and supporting Saskatchewan music!

Season 2 – Week #23: An Empty Room with Ryan Boldt – “Fallen Leaves”

This Thanksgiving we are thankful to have Ryan Boldt’s performance of “Fallen Leaves” as the newest edition to our Empty Room series!  Born and raised on the prairies, Ryan Boldt released 5 albums over 10 years with his band The Deep Dark Woods.  Inspired by the traditional music of America and England, he is currently working on his second solo album “Yarrow”, which will be released soon with a tour to follow.  For more information, go to www.ryanboldt.com.  If you missed Ryan’s first video “San Juan Hill”, head on over to YouTube to check it out.
