BLUE


An exhibition of work by Saskatoon youth.
Presented by Mendel Youth Council

On view – April 9 to 24, 2013
Reception & Live Performances: Friday, April 12, 2013 at 7:30 p.m.

BLUE is an exhibition of work curated by Mendel Youth Council and featuring the colour blue. Through this exhibition, it is the Youth Council’s goal to promote young artists in the community by giving them the opportunity to showcase their talent and creativity while communicating their own ideas. This diverse body of work selected for BLUE illustrates the lengths to which a concept, or colour, can be expanded and the many directions in which it can be steered by various artists without losing its essence. As they display the many shades of blue in their works, the participating artists take the opportunity to convey their many-shaded perceptions of the world, in all its majesty.

Scenes from a Dream


Scenes from a Dream
A exhibition of work by Saskatoon youth.
Presented by Mendel Youth Council

March 2 to April 2, 2012

Scenes from a Dream is a collection of work that explores dreams. Twenty-seven young Saskatoon artists have taken on the challenge of looking inward and sharing the mysterious, peculiar and often wonderful visions created by the mind’s eye.

This exhibition was organized by Mendel Youth Council, a group whose members, aged 14 to 18, share a strong interest in visual art and a desire to make their voices heard in the community.

A public reception will be held on Friday, March 9 at 7 p.m.  Admission is free. Everyone is welcome.

Mendel Youth Council is offering opportunities for Saskatoon youth to present their artistic talents in a gallery setting.

Saskatoon youth are encouraged to submit photographic work that tells a story or represents the people, places and things that make teens unique. Photographs can be any colour, retouched or not, digital or film, and of any physical size. There is a limit of 15 photographs per applicant. Photographs that are sub-mitted in electronic form will be considered, but only as a slideshow presentation during the exhibit; already printed photographs will be exhibited traditionally upon acceptance.
