An Index of Saskatchewan Fauna & Other Curiosities

Caitlin MullanThis exhibition arose out of a collaboration between Jennifer Matotek, Director/Curator at the Dunlop Art Gallery; and John Snell, Manager of Public Programs at the Royal Saskatchewan Museum.

What they did is offer Regina printmaker Caitlin Mullan, a founding member of the local collective Articulate Ink,  an opportunity to view art, artifacts and related “curiosities” from their respective permanent collections.

Using those objects as inspiration, Mullan then created two installations that explore their meaning and significance in relation to each other and the province where they were created/found.

The exhibition will be accompanied by a hand-printed field guide (cover image at left) that will assist people in viewing the work much like the field guide a naturalist might rely on while on a wilderness walk.

An Index of Saskatchewan Fauna & Other Curiosities will be on display at Central Library and the Royal Saskatchewan Museum until Jan. 15.
