Pick Of The Day: Haven Of Delight

I’ll be reviewing this exhibition by Toronto artist Ed Pien in an upcoming issue of prairie dog. It’s curated by Eve-Lyne Beaudry, and includes work at both the Dunlop Art Gallery’s Central and Sherwood Village locations.

Tonight there’s an opening reception at 7:30 p.m. at Central Library.

The Central show, which features a labyrinth made out of hand-cut paper, is on until May 6. The companion Sherwood Village show of drawings and cut paper runs until May 21.

Also on tonight, Grassroots Regina is presenting folksinger Maria Dunn with Lizzy Hoyt at the Club. The show’s at 8:30 p.m., and it’s $12 at the door. Here’s video of Dunn performing a song called “We Were Good People“.

And at O’Hanlon’s Pub, there’s a CD release for Slow Down, Molasses with back-up buzz act Jeans Boots.

Finally, Burning Sun Productions are presenting Jazzatchewan at Artesian on 13th. It’s a cabaret-style show that celebrates Saskatchewan’s impressive jazz history which stretches back to the Roaring Twenties. It runs tonight and Saturday night at 7:30 p.m., and Sunday at 2:30 p.m. For ticket information call 522-0080.

  1. Oooh, that Ed Pien show is in Regina now? That was one of the best things I’ve experienced at the Mendel here – his work is absolutely gorgeous and eerie. I may have to make a special trip down to see it again.

  3. Not to sound ignorant, but I can’t find the opening recieption for the Ed Pien show on the gallery’s website. Is it open or invite only? It looks really interesting and i happen to be looking for something to do tonight…

  4. I too was floored by the Pien display when it was at the Mendel. EVERYONE should go to see it.

    Also, Jeanette! You’re buzzing! Congratulations!
