EXHIBITION OPENING

A large and appreciative audience was on hand at the MacKenzie Art Gallery for the official opening of the exhibition Regina Clay: Worlds in the Making on Friday, November 18, 2005. Opening formalities featured several warm tributes to the fourteen artists of Regina Clay, eleven of whom were present. Master of ceremonies for the evening was Kate Davis, Director of the MacKenzie Art Gallery. Acknowledging the special place these artists have in people’s hearts and minds were two government officials: the Honourable Joanne Crofford, Minister of Community Resources and Employment for the Province of Saskatchewan and Councillor Fred Clipsham for the City of Regina. With some humour, exhibition curator Timothy Long recounted the unusual origins of the exhibition and thanked the many individuals who contributed to its success. Two Regina Clay artists then spoke, Margaret Keelan and Beth Hone; they offered moving tributes to the two artists who passed away during the course of the preparation of the exhibition: Marilyn Levine and Lorraine Malach. Concluding the formalities and acknowledging the sponsors for the exhibition was Jane Thurgood Sagal, President of the MacKenzie Board of Trustees.
