Carol Wylie: They Didn't Know We Were Seeds
Main Gallery, April 16 — May 29, 2021
The Mann Art Gallery presents They Didn't Know We Were Seeds by Saskatoon-based artist Carol Wylie. This exhibition consists of eighteen portraits of Jewish holocaust and residential school survivors. In Jewish tradition, eighteen represents the word 'chai' which means life. Themes including trauma, ongoing recovery, shared pain, and the indomitable human spirit, are central in Wylie's work. With numbers of holocaust survivors dwindling, and the same eventual loss of residential school survivors, these portraits remain and continue to reflect the strength and courage of these individuals.

10th Annual High School Juried Art Show
Project Space and Education Studio, April 9 — May 29, 2021
Virtual Reception and Awards: April 23 @ 7PM live-streamed on the Mann Facebook Page
For the past nine years, the Mann Art Gallery has presented art by local high school students in the Project and Education Studio Galleries of our beautiful space. This year, during the typical High School Juried Art Show period (April-May 2021), we are determined to showcase and celebrate the artistic achievements and creative vision of talented students in a new, hybrid format—both an in-person and virtual exhibition! We are excited to host your work not only in the gallery for visitors to appreciate, but also online, where artwork has the potential to reach viewers around the world. Students have the option of only submitting a digital image of a work, or the physical work itself; all artworks will be viewed online.
