Welcome New Director/Curator
The Mann Art Gallery has appointed Jesse Campbell as its new
"Jesse Campbell was with us from November 2012 to March 2013 as
Assistant Curator under the Young Canada Works grant program. If you
were lucky enough to attend the Art History classes she conducted at the
Mann Art Gallery, you will have great respect for her knowledge,
organizational skills, and interpersonal abilities," said Annette
Henbid, Chair of the Mann Art Gallery Board.
After fulfilling her term with the Mann Art Gallery in 2013, Jesse
worked as Assistant Curator at the newly opened Robert Bateman Centre in
Victoria BC. She has also held teaching and research appointments at,
respectively, the University of Saskatchewan and the Barber Institute of
Fine Arts in Birmingham, England. At the latter she was awarded a grant
from the National Portrait Gallery to conduct research on British
portraiture. She has published on representations of domestic interiors,
portraiture, and personal art collecting. Jesse received her Master of
Arts in Art History at Universiteit Utrecht (The Netherlands) in 2012
and her Bachelor of Arts in Art History at the University of
Saskatchewan in 2010.
Born and raised in Saskatoon, Jesse is thrilled to return to her home
province. She looks forward to building upon the gallery's dynamic
exhibition and programming schedule and strengthening its ties with the
North Central Saskatchewan community.
Due to a shortage in staff the Mann Art
Gallery will be closed on Saturdays and Sundays
effective immediately. We will remain open from 10:00 AM - 5:00
Monday - Friday. If you are coming from out of town on the weekend
and would like to see the gallery, please make arrangements ahead of
time - we may be able to accommodate.

Home Routes Concert Series Announced
The Mann Art Gallery is pleased to
announce that we will be carrying on the tradition of the Home Routes
'House' concerts during the 2014 - 15 season with six award winning
musicians from across the country as well as the United States.

operates 14 house concert touring circuits across Canada, from YT to PE. House
concerts are a North American tradition
that developed within the folk-roots milieu to introduce artists to
wider audiences. During the 1950’s “folk boom” a significant number of
young people began to choose “folk singing” as their profession. With
the number of talented performers by far exceeding the number of places
to play, house concerts remain a significant part of the music scene.
Home Routes brings
small communities professional artists of exceptional talent who would
otherwise perform only in theatres, concert halls and folk festivals in
urban markets. With almost no physical separation between artist and
audience, a house concert is an intimate experience for everyone.
Casual, comfortable and unpretentious, house concerts are fun and very
often, inspirational events that create lasting memories.

The MAG hosts receptions for exhibiting artists
whenever possible. Events such as these allow visitors to meet artists
and learn more about their work. The artists give a brief talk about
their art practice and answer questions from those present. The gallery
provides free refreshments. Artist Receptions last about 2 hours, but it
is not necessary to stay the whole time. There is no dress code and
everyone is invited to attend. Children are also welcome to come with
their families. The next reception will take place in June / July
for the Myles MacDonald and George Glenn exhibition
The Watchmen. Exact dates to be announced. For
more information on our current exhibitions click HERE.
