The Estevan Art Gallery and Museum (EAGM) invites the community to explore the role of language through works of three Indigenous Saskatchewan artists.
The exhibition, named I do not Have My Words, recently opened at the Gallery 2. The project is curated and organized by the Moose Jaw Museum and Art Gallery with funding assistance from the City of Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan Arts Board, SaskCulture, SaskLotteries and the Canada Council for the Arts. It showcases works of Joi T. Arcand, Catherine Blackburn and Audrey Dreaver.
“Notions of community, time, loss and adaptation are themes that we see existent in both of the exhibitions that we are looking at,” said EAGM director and curator Amber Andersen at the opening of the exhibit and The Quality of your Involvement will be the Measure of Your Reward by Terri Fidelak.
The project, featuring printmaking, sculpture, photography and beaded mixed media works, raises a lot of questions about the reality the artists explore and ideas they put into their art. Each piece looks into language loss and considers how language can be connected to one’s cultural identity.
