The Weyburn Arts Council will welcome patrons of the arts tomorrow evening to an event showcasing art that, even in the chill of winter, can help to warm anyone who is missing summertime.

The opening reception event will offer a chance to mingle with the artists of an exhibition that is currently installed at Signal Hill Arts Centre for July and August, entitled, “Saskatchewan Summer”.

“We have pottery pieces, photography, painting, it’s a multi-medium, it’ll be a super fun show,” Regan Lanning, City Curator. “Come on out, check out some interesting summer-related art.”

The reception begins at 7 p.m. in the Second Floor Gallery at SAHC.

“This is a curated show,” she said. “I asked artists to send me art that kind of depicted those moments that we have in the summer that keep us going in the dead of winter.”

“We remember, ‘oh, that bonfire, that was fun’, when it’s minus 40 and blowing,” she added. “We all have those moments that keep us here, that keep us from emigrating to Thailand or something.”

“Winters are hard,” she said. “So this is a celebration of Saskatchewan Summer, because there really is nothing like a Saskatchewan Summer.”

Local artists participating include Marilyn Nelson, Shelley Van De Sype, Denise Bakken, Tana Cugnet and Carol Reeve.
