Joe Fafard Ford, 1976 clay, glaze, acrylic, wood 40.5 x 43.8 x 38.3 cm The Saskatchewan Arts Board Permanent Collection 1977-302
See murals by Jack Sures, Marilyn Levine’s leather boots and bags, David Gilhooly's frog mythologies, Joe Fafard's small-town prairie portraits and Victor Cicansky's outhouse temples in Regina Clay: Worlds in the Making. This exhibition was first presented at the MacKenzie Art Gallery and is now preserved on the Virtual Museums of Canada portal. It includes over 130 works by fourteen artists, and examines how—in the late 1960s—clay came into its own as a sculptural medium in Regina and garnered international attention.
This is the first major retrospective of Bob Boyer, a nationally and internationally renowned artist, art historian, curator and educator. Boyer’s influence is far-reaching and interwoven among the communities of art, education and culture. This touring exhibition and the accompanying publication are a celebration of the art, life and critical contribution of this influential artist. Sixty paintings in diverse media trace his career from 1968 to 2004.

Tactile Desires: The Work of Jack Sures
This exhibition is the first retrospective of one of Canada’s most significant ceramists—a multi-faceted figure whose exuberant and sensuous work traverses the categories of craft, fine art and public monument. In addition to offering a comprehensive look at his work from the early 1960s to the present, this retrospective will address his important role and influence as an educator and mentor.
Organized by the MacKenzie Art Gallery and the Tom Thomson Art Gallery. This project has been made possible in part through a contribution from the Museums Assistance Program, Department of Canadian Heritage.
