Dunlop Art Gallery is collaborating with the Saskatchewan Sports Hall of Fame and Museum to produce two parallel exhibitions commemorating the 100th anniversary of the Saskatchewan Roughrider Football Club. The Dunlop's exhibition, Green is the Colour: The Art of Rider Pride will bring together historical and contemporary works of visual art that celebrate the team and explore the culture that has developed around it over the last 100 years. The Saskatchewan Sports Hall of Fame and Museum's exhibition Saskatchewan Roughriders: The Team the Fans Built will provide a historical lens on the foundation and formation of the team from its early beginnings to its most recent achievements.
Artists in the Dunlop's exhibition include: Angela Morgan, Ward Schell, Drew & Joel Hunter, Debbie Wozniak-Bonk, Jefferson Little, Sean William Randall, David Thauberger, Wilf Perreault and commissioned artwork by Graeme Patterson and Brenda Francis Pelkey. A special artwork created by students from Luther College High School, in collaboration with teacher Drew Hunter and artist Jefferson Little, will also be featured in the exhibition. In addition, winning artwork from the Riders Centennial Art Competition will be displayed in the Regina Public Library during the exhibition.
Dunlop Art Gallery has partnered with the Saskatchewan Sports Hall of Fame and Museum to co-publish a catalogue commemorating our two exhibitions.
