No, this post has nothing to do with today’s federal election. While the campaign may have been dirty, at least as far as attack ads and the Harper Conservatives dog whistle/dead cat politicking go, at 78 days in length (the longest campaign since 1872, apparently) it was anything but quick.

Instead, this post is about a new artist talk series that the Dunlop Art Gallery is launching Tuesday night at Creative City Centre (1843 Hamilton) at 8 p.m. I’m not sure what future plans call for, but for the debut edition the gallery has lined up seven MFA students at the University of Regina to give short presentations on their work.

Presenters include: Rania Al Harthi, Sarah Ferguson, Brian Hoad, Jayden Pfeifer, Jess Richter, Olivia Rozema and Negar Shakoor. So it should offer a good chance to get up to speed on what some of the emerging arts talent in Regina is up to. Again, the talk goes Tuesday at 8 p.m. at Creative City Centre.
