Local Talent Part 1
I would like to share with you two local groups in Moose Jaw that highlight some of the amazing talents we have tucked away in our city. The Moose Jaw Art Guild and The Moose Jaw Camera Club.
The Moose Jaw Art Guild is a membership based organization that brings artists together to share their love of art and creativity. They use several different mediums, all unique to the artist.
Memberships are very reasonable, $25/year for adults, $15/year for youths (14+). With your membership you get the opportunity to participate in exhibitions, attend skill building workshops, be involved in peer to peer groups and be a part of art excursions to other communities!
We have a wall in our gift shop at Tourism Moose Jaw where we display several of the Art Guilds pieces. Many travellers over the last year have left with a little piece of Moose Jaw to take back home with them.
If you would like the chance to get a better look at what these artists can do, they will be on exhibit at the Moose Jaw Museum and Art Gallery from November 8th to January 6th. The opening reception will be held November 8th from 7:30 to 9 pm.
The Moose Jaw Camera Club’s photos cover our walls at Tourism Moose Jaw. When you walk around the centre you will see our buddy Mac in several different poses and backgrounds, some of the most beautiful Saskatchewan scenery and iconic images of Moose Jaw, like the 4th Avenue Bridge.
Their annual membership is also reasonable at $40/year. This gets you access to club activities, outings and meetings. Their Facebook page, www.facebook.com/groups/moosejawcameraclub is a good starting point. The club is full of knowledgeable photographers that have mastered their art.
I encourage you to come visit us at Tourism Moose Jaw and see what these local photographers and artists can do and with Christmas only a couple months away, you might find the perfect gift for the art lover in your life!
Look for Local Talent Part 2 in the coming weeks!
See you around,
