Women of Clay for International Women's Day

In honour of International Women's Day 2024, SK Arts partnered with Minister Laura Ross and the Ministry of Parks, Culture and Sport to exhibit a fitting and enthralling series of artwork by Saskatchewan women in an exhibit called 40+ Years in the MakingWomen and Clay at the Cumberland Art Gallery in Regina. The exhibit was inspired by Deborah Potter’s sculpture, 40+ Years in the Making: Women and Clay, which was also installed at the Mosaic Tower Hill Centre III by the City of Regina last fall.

Cultural intersection, family at the forefront for Saskatoon artist JingLu Zhao

JingLu moved to Canada in 2013 with her family and since focused on caring for her three children. Then the pandemic hit, and like many other people and creatives, she found herself stir-crazy. So, she picked up a paintbrush and put the two MFAs she had earned to work. A Chinese native, JingLu felt a special connection in the Saskatoon landscape that reminded her of her homeland. From photos of breathtaking landscapes to oil paintings on canvases, the love of art pulled her back in, and she began pursuing her art full-time in 2021.
