movie day: She/Her/Herself – Four Generations of Women in Mingei

On March 27, 2019, as part of the celebration of our new ceramics exhibit, “The Persistence of Mingei: Influence through Four Generations of Ceramic Artists,” we hosted a special gathering with women artists featured in the exhibition. Rebecca Sive moderated this informal conversation, focused on each artist’s ceramic practice, their relationship to the Mingei influence, and the role gender has played in their practice and larger context. Panelists included Margaret Bohls, Linda Christianson, Maren Kloppman, Jan McKeachie-Johnston, Linda Sikora, Sandy Simon, and Rhonda Willers.

MAKING IT IN SASKATCHEWAN provides a close personal look at how artists create vibrant, meaningful work throughout this province.

Twelve artists and creatives are featured in the six-episode series. Whether actors, singer-songwriters, writers, photographers, visual artists or designers, all are dedicated to Making It — creating original work, making a go of it in Saskatchewan, and reaching the pinnacle of success in their chosen pursuit.

Huge thanks to Robin Schlaht for his amazing work in this series and for putting up with me!
