Local art, featuring local scenery, by local artists.
An art reception was held yesterday at the gallery in the Weyburn Credit Union to celebrate the original, locally-inspired art currently on exhibit there, which features the winning pieces chosen for their 2019 art calendar.
Uniquely Weyburn is just one way to describe the exhibit.
“We’re so ultra-local, it’s appropriate that we have ultra-local art on our office walls,” said Vice President of Marketing, Tana Torkelson.
The exhibit will be on display throughout January and February, but Torkelson said each piece will become part of the Credit Union's permanent art collection.
"All of the prints that are on display here are going to be reproduced on acrylic board and they’ll be permanently displayed throughout our offices in the building and different public areas,” she said.
She added while feedback has been great, there are no plans as of yet for another calendar contest.
