Jack & Ben Sures

Until Dec. 5, Slate Gallery has a display of ceramics by veteran Regina artist and educator Jack Sures. A few years ago, the MacKenzie Gallery organized a retrospective of Sures’ work called Tactile Desires that toured to four other galleries in Canada.

The exhibition is called Eighty-One and it commemorates Sures’ 81st birthday. On Thursday, Nov. 19 his son Ben, who’s worked as a folk musician since the mid-1990s, will be at the gallery to perform in his father’s honour.

You can find out more details on the Slate Gallery website, and here’s video from 2014 of Ben Sures performing with other musicians at a jam in Toronto
