The Darkened Sky Art Exhibit
June 12 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Consisting of fifteen artists, The Darkened Sky highlights the beauty of darkness through a spectrum of artistic mediums. Works range from craft to fine art, and there is a wide variety styles from representational to abstract to folk art. Over half of the artists are First Nations or Métis, weaving together unique cultural perspectives and familiar methods of art-making.
The seemingly unrelated works are woven together through twilight and shadows. Some works are straightforward and easy to understand, while others are heavy with symbolism or personal references. Some works directly reference the night sky, and others hint at a darkness within the artist that comes across through a combination of subject and title only. Collaboratively, all works in The Darkened Sky give you an undeniable sense of connection to the process of making, to the land under our feet, and to culture, through the lens of a dark night on the prairie.
