This year the Mann Art Gallery

Join us as we learn about famous
artists from around the world and right here in Saskatchewan in the
mornings at the Mann Art Gallery (9 - 12:00 pm). Painters,
sculptors, architects, and traditional artists, too. Each day we are
introduced to a different artists' vision and we'll learn about their
favourite techniques: Frida Kahlo, Wassily Kandinsky, Joe Fafard,
George Glenn...and YOU! Then, at 12:00 pm, kids will be escorted to the
Arts Centre where they will be “Little Chefs” making their own lunch,
and enjoying acting and drama activities until 3:00 pm.
It's Art + Cooking + Drama = Creative Daze.
Children are asked to bring a snack for 10:30 am
break, and to wear your "messy" clothes!

made at the PA Arts Centre (1010 Central Ave, 306-953-4811.)
The Art of Framing Art
with Heather Cline
Saturday February 27th
2:00 - 5:00 PM
The Mann Art Gallery
Free for MAG members
$35.00 for non-members
This workshop will start with a
brief historical tour of framing style and methods, with a spotlight on
some contemporary framing strategies. We will then get down to
some practical considerations, including: framing aesthetics, archival
concerns, weighing economy and expertise, and finally some simple
how-to. The session will include a demonstration for a simple method for
framing small scale works on paper, panel and canvas/panel works.
Participants will have lots of opportunity to ask questions regarding
their own framing dilemmas.
About the instructor: Mixed media
Artist Heather Cline MFA spent the first three years after completing
her BFA at the University of Saskatchewan working as a professional
picture framer at Art Placement in Saskatoon. She also had the
opportunity to work as a part time gallery preparator with the excellent
staff at the Mendel Art Gallery. These experiences combined with a
strange need to work in multiple media, from painting to wood carving to
works that incorporate audio/video elements, has resulted in life-long
obsession with effective art framing and gallery display.
