The Artist Run Centre Creative Studios Gallery is honoured to present the works of artist and sessional lecturer for the Department of Art and Art History Susan Velder.
Susan currently resides in St. Walburg and had, for many years, her own studio in that community.
This exhibition is a review of her work from a 50-year retrospect.
“These years have been challenging, rewarding, sometimes disappointing, but always intriguing,” Velder says.
“Speaking with some of the artists at ARC, I was reminded of how ‘needful’ doing art is for many people. That is how it seemed to me, a physical, intellectual, emotional preoccupation. One always hopes that through this activity we are able to connect in some meaningful way with those who ‘came to look.’”
ARC and Velder will be hosting a gallery reception Saturday from 2 to 5 p.m. Please come and meet the artist and view her intriguing works of art. The gallery is located on 100th Street in North Battleford across from the Royal Bank of Canada and next to the Bank of Nova Scotia.
The gallery is open to the general public Fridays and Saturdays from noon to 4 p.m. and by appointment. This exhibition will be on display for April and May.
