Finding City, Community Arts Organization

I developed the website for Finding City, creating a main page that highlights the organization's programs as well as an interactive mapping project.

Homepage

Mapping Saskatoon

    Interactive project allowing users to post photos they have taken on a Google map of Saskatoon. Images are uploaded through the photo-sharing site Panoramio.

    This project was undertaken in conjunction with SCYAP, allowing the mapping of the traffic control boxes and murals painted through them.

  • Google Map with thumbnails of images uploaded through Finding City, located where they were taken.
  • Filter controls allowing users to choose which photos to view.

For the Deparmtent's website redesign in 2011, I worked with the College of Arts and Science Webmaster to decide upon the site's structure. I took photographs of each studio area and built slideshows of these photographs into the existing site layout. I was also responsible for maintaining a slideshow of department news and events on the home page and for managing profiles of the department's faculty and staff through the College's Web Content Management System, both transferring information from the old site and updating the profiles as necessary. less

Homepage

  • Slideshow highlighting Department news and events, from exhibitions at Gordon Snelgrove Gallery to shows and other events faculty, alumni, and students are involved in outside the University.
  • I took photographs for background images using mediums from each of our studio areas and incorporating the colours of the new site.

Studio Areas

    A page was created for each studio area, with images and information for students about the classes offered in the area.

  • Slideshow of images I took during a sculpture class, interspersed with images from recent BFA and MFA Graduating Exhibitions in sculpture.

Void is a gallery and workspace for creatives. We display monthly exhibitions that are accessible and affordable and host community programming - from workshops to communal making and art nights. Programming is held in The Creative Commons which includes a full printmaking studio as well as an event space bookable for small events and projects.

We are open Wednesdays to Saturdays 10 to 6 and Sundays 10 to 4. Closed holidays.

We are located at 312 Ave B South in Saskatoon.

Void was founded in 2012 by Kris Kershaw, Nelson Fraser, and Michael Peterson.

I received a BFA with a focus in Printmaking from the University of Saskatchewan in 2009. For the past two and a half years I have worked for the Department of Art & Art History at the U of S in a number of roles. I started as the Gallery Assistant at Gordon Snelgrove Gallery, rebuilding the gallery website as well as assisting with exhibition installation and takedown and collection management. I also served as web designer for the Department, helping with the rebuild of the department site. Most recently I have worked in Printmaking, both as the Printmaking Technician and as a Sessional Lecturer. I also teach an annual half-day course on gallery procedures for the U of S Centre for Continuing and Distance Education.

At void's predecessor, Esteem for the Home, I served as Gallery Coordinator, responsible for booking artists, installing shows, and promoting our exhibitions.

In my own practice, I focus mainly on printmaking, especially woodcuts and etchings as of late. I am a founding member of Ink Slab, Saskatoon's only artist-run printmaking studio.

We are always looking for new artists. We show paintings, drawings, prints, photos, and sculpture (ranging from woodwork to textiles to pottery to metal to mixed media). As well, we are open to more experimental exhibition proposals. While we do accept individual submissions, and show a number of individual shows each year, we encourage artists, where possible, to submit exhibition proposals with fellow artists whose work complements each others' either stylistically or who are working together in response to a common idea or theme. We seek to build and strenghthen community through art, and encourage our artists to work to do the same.

If you would be interested in showing your work at void or one of our off-site galleries, please send an email to info@voidgallery.ca that includes the following:

» CV
» 5 - 10 images of your work in JPEG or TIFF format - or a link to images of your work online
» your general price expectations (if you are not sure, that's ok - we are happy to work with you on it)
» Artist Statement (optional)
» Exhibition Proposal (optional)
