Came from Water, Anna Leonowens Gallery, Nscad University, Halifax, NS - June 2018

Came from Water, Gordon Snelgrove GALLERY, U of S, Saskatoon, SK - July 2018

The oldest creatures of the earth originated in the oceans. We came from water…

Evoking  deep  time  and  a  shared  imagination of  ancient  environments, this  large-scale  visual  spectacle  questioned reality  and conjured  ideas  about  the  secret  worlds  and  histories  that connect  us all. This body of work was a collaboration among prairie artists living on the ancient sea bed of the Western Interior Seaway and maritime artists living next to the North Atlantic Ocean. Similar to transformation processes found in nature, the collective artwork evolved in response to each other and its environments. 

Special thanks to the Saskatchewan Arts Board for their funding and support of this project. 

Featuring artwork by: Aralia Maxwell, Cynthia Blanchette, Alexa Hainsworth, Tamara Rusnak, Chloe Kinsella, and Arianna Richardson.

WOMEN'S WORLD, BRIDGES ART MOVEMENT GALLERY, SASKATOON, SK - MARCH 2016

A celebration of feminism and femininity. A new generation of artists came together to challenge negative, angst ridden stereotypes traditionally associated with feminist art. With a positive and cheeky attitude, the artists created an atmosphere which welcomed discussions on gender and gender equality.

PeepHole, Bam Gallery, Nuit Blanche, Saskatoon, SK – September 2015

BAM's Peephole project offered visitors a different way to interact with the traditional gallery space. Visitors walked into a newly built room painted "intestinal pink" from floor to ceiling. Rather than having works hung on the walls, the art was within the walls. Visitors became curious voyeurs as they interacted with a wide variety of multimedia installations through peepholes cut into the walls.

Featuring artwork by: Aralia Maxwell, Cynthia Blanchette, David Stonhouse, Andie Nicole Palynchuk, Derek Sandbeck, Joanna Speed, Stephanie Kuse, Audra Balion, Jordan Cooper, Cameron McKay, and Colby Richardson.
