Opens January 18th!
Presented by Brandie Perkins
January 18, 2020 to March 29, 2020
“My art captures my passion for the inherent beauty of nature and the skies. I specialize in colour theory, texture, movement and expressing myself emotionally through the pigmentation, luminosity and saturation of the chosen medium. I have years of experience with acrylics being my medium of choice and have more recently fallen prey to the languid lure of alcohol inks."
Brandie Rae Perkins is a local Saskatchewan artist. She is a self-taught, multi-disciplinary artist with a focus on acrylic painting and alcohol inks. Brandie has had an interest in arts since she was young and has focused on creating and adapting her art through a variety of mediums. Colour theory and heavy textures define her work.
Saturdays Drop-in Children's Program
Government House is offering a drop-in children's activity each Saturday from 1:00 to 2:00 pm.
January's activity is the Conservator 101 Program. NO PROGRAM on Saturday, January 25th as a Jocko's Friends event is taking place (more info: https://govhousesociety.ca/jockos-friends/)
Find out what it is like to work with museum pieces. You get to put on white gloves and touch and work with real artifacts. See if you can guess what these items are and what they were used for?
This activity is free but we do request that a guardian stays with the child. No registration is required.
