The Drift
NOV 17, 2023 – JAN 20, 2024

The Drift features three bodies of work by Medicine Hat-based artists Wes Bell, Susan Sakamoto and Wendy Struck that centering around the theme of psychogeography and the question of how we relate to and explore the places we inhabit. As a practice, psychogeography conducts a minute examination of the effects of place and space on the psyche. The exhibition aims to introduce new psychological perspectives on the surrounding landscape.

Medicine Hat Artist Feature 
AUGUST 2023

The Medicine Hat Artist Feature brings together an eccentric grouping of wonderful artists, each at varying stages of their careers and with unique backgrounds and interests that have led them to their artistic work. We hope this project will bring some merriment to everyone who encounters it, and perhaps inspire some of you to start a creative project of your own this summer.

Stepping into shades of sky blue, Inside Skies welcomes audiences into a meditative state.
