The launch

...of Celebrating Saskatchewan Artists was packed. The book was written by Steven Ross Smith and designed by Duncan Campbell. It's gorgeous. I'll provide a link to it when I find one.

Before the launch, we spent some time at the Mendel Art Gallery. The Sisetski exhibition is incredible. In The Mendel Folio (Volume 34.2), Dan Ring, the curator of this exhibition, says "Sisetski sees his work as a message that is both ominous and revelatory, a vision of his deeply held worldview that distills strands of prophetic narratives and occult motivations that resonate with his real life and our time." I wish I could've spent more time with his work. Too bad they didn't print a catalogue for the show.

After the launch, we drove through the dark to Manitou.
