Welcome New Director/Curator

The Mann Art Gallery has appointed Jesse Campbell as its new Director/Curator.

"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.

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.

For current concerts, visit: www.homeroutes.ca

For current information, contact us!  306-763-7080

Home Routes 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.

Annual General Meeting
The Mann Art Gallery will be holding our 2015 Annual General Meeting on Tuesday, March 31st, 2015 at 7:00pm in accordance with Saskatchewan's Not For Profit Act (1995).

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.
