Local artists brought paintings, sketches, photography, jewellery and more to the OCC Hall in Kamsack.
The Kamsack Powerhouse Museum sponsored the 3rd annual Artist’s Day on July 14, with 10 artists in attendance.
“The quality of the art work and the variety of the displays were just wonderful,” said Darlene Brown a Museum board member and organizer of the event. “Although we only had around 52 people come to take in the displays, everyone certainly enjoyed themselves. The OCC Hall was a beautiful space to showcase the artists’ work.”
Lemay Bear had a display of landscapes, sketches and portraits; Alanna Finnie with sketching; Brenda Kondratoff, paintings; Alexis Koroluk, sketches and watercolour; Marilyn Lachambre, photography; Annette Purchase, 5 Elements Photography; Andrew Mathuik, paintings; Dustin Wilson, paintings, and Nancy and Doug Welykholowa whose artwork is featured at the Friends of Madge Lake cottage store Treats and Treasures in Duck Mountain Provincial Park.
“Our hard-working volunteers provided treats and refreshments for all who attended, and I wish to say a big ‘thank you’ to all who helped out to make this third Artist Day the success it was,” Brown said.
Although some were returning artists, Brown was enthusiastic about the newcomers to the show, saying how wonderful it was to feature works by Nancy and Doug Welykholowa of Madge Lake, and Andrew Mathuik of Yorkton.
“We will continue to sponsor the Artist Day, and our committee will be meeting to discuss plans for the next show,” Brown said. “We wish to invite members of the public to contribute any suggestions they may have as to what they would like to see at future shows. Anyone may connect with the Kamsack Museum on our Facebook page, or contact any of the board members to pass along ideas. It is a good opportunity to have our local talent on display and we acknowledge all those who came to support the day.”
