Ways of Living, Ways of Painting: La Ronge and La Loche
The paintings of Myles Hector Charles and Mary Joyce
Marcus Miller, curator

November 17, 2022 —  January 14, 2023

Reception: Thursday, November 17 at 7PM


This exhibition brings together two very different artists, both painting life in northern communities in Saskatchewan. In 1990, Mary Joyce (Edmonton) had the opportunity to live in La Loche for a year where she met people, made friends and painted scenes of work, play and social gatherings. Mary has donated these paintings (the Black Point series) to the Mann Art Gallery, some of which will later be displayed in rotating, long-term loans to the La Loche Friendship Centre. Elder Myles Charles was born in Fox Point on Lac la Ronge, and is a member of the Lac La Ronge Indian Band # 353. Myles attended both the La Ronge and Prince Albert Indian Residential Schools. In the mid-sixties, he enrolled in the Fine Art Program at the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology in Calgary. Like Mary’s paintings, Myles’ scenes of people hunting, fishing, gathering and socializing are beautiful, historical records of life in northern Saskatchewan.

Cory Chad – Emanating
Jesse Campbell, curator

November 17, 2022 —  January 14, 2023

Reception: Thursday, November 17 at 7PM

Embracing exploration in an open-ended process of application, erasure, and response is the foundation of Cory Chad’s work. This exhibition of her recent paintings, drawings, and ceramics does not seek to define subjects or content with precision; rather, these works suggest ideas of change, the passage of time, and life around objects in domestic spaces. What emanates in clay, canvas, and paper on any given day comes from the events – whether mundane or major – of an hour, a week, a year, a lifetime, as they accumulate and unconsciously are recorded in their creation.

Leah M. Dorion: A Colourful Celebration 

a permanent collection exhibition curated by Milo Adair

Education Studio

June 23, 2022 —  TBD

 

Leah Marie Dorion’s work is explosive – full of life and rendered in bright, energetic colours. Filled with symbolism and storytelling, Leah’s art showcases and celebrates Métis life cycles, material culture and especially the central role that women play. The paintings in this exhibition comprise nearly three-quarters of the generous donation the artist made to Mann Art Gallery in 2015. The donation was made with the proviso that it be made available to the public as often as possible. Leah Marie Dorion is an interdisciplinary Métis artist raised in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan. A teacher, painter, filmmaker and published writer, Leah views her Métis heritage as providing her with a unique bridge for knowledge between all people. Leah holds a Bachelor of Education, Bachelor of Arts, and Master of Arts degree. (LD)
