Nature Matching System

tattfoo_1322853441_69We’ll perhaps have a review down the road, but on Jan. 22 the Dunlop Art Gallery will be opening a new exhibition called On The Table. The exhibition features work by 14 Canadian and international artists and will be held at the Central and Sherwood Village galleries. It’s curated by Blair Fornwald, Jennifer Matotek and Wendy Peart, and will explore the subject of food.

Before that happens, though, the Dunlop is hosting a drop-in workshop called Nature Matching System which will give people an opportunity to create a small panel for an art work by Brooklyn artist Tattfoo Tan (pictured above) that will be part of On The Table. Fan’s art work will apparently examine the importance of colour to our diet.

The workshop goes on Saturday Jan. 16 from 1-4 p.m. at the Dunlop. And On the Table itself opens on Friday Jan. 22 at Central Library with an artist talk by Amber Phelps Bondaroff at 6 p.m., and a reception at 7 p.m.

A MESSAGE TO OUR READERS The coronavirus pandemic is a moment of reckoning for our community. We’re all hurting. It’s no different at Prairie Dog, where COVID-19 has wiped out advertisements for events, businesses and restaurants as Regina and Saskatchewan hunker down in quarantine. As an ad-supported newspaper already struggling in a destabilized media landscape, this is devastating. We’re hoping you, our loyal readers, can help fill in the gap so Prairie Dog can not only continue to exist but even expand our coverage — both in print and online. Please consider donating, either one-time or, even better, on a monthly basis.

We believe Prairie Dog's unique voice is needed, now more than ever. For 27 years, this newspaper has been a critical part of Regina’s social, cultural and democratic infrastructure. Don’t let us fade away. There’s only one Prairie Dog. If it’s destroyed, it’s never coming back.
