The 35th annual James Weir People’s Choice exhibit is now available for viewing and voting at the Allie Griffin Art Gallery. This year, there are 34 pieces on display.

“There’s an amazing variety,” said City Curator Regan Lanning. “We have clay, pottery pieces, we have some carved wood, we have fabric art, there’s oil paintings, watercolour, acrylic, there’s embroidery... If you can imagine it, it’s probably in the show.”

Voting can be done in person until February 15th. Weyburn Arts Council’s ‘no-names’ policy tradition continues again this year for the third year in a row.

“All that is available for you to know is the title of the piece, the medium that was used to create it and the number, you put the numbers down on your top three choices,” she explained.

Voting this year will also be available online.

“In the next couple of days we will be sharing that on our Facebook page as well as our Instagram, and there will also be a sign, up in the gallery, as well,” said Lanning.

She added tours are available for clubs and groups of any kind. Booking can be done by contacting Alice at the Signal Hill Arts Centre.
