On now at Godfrey Dean Art Gallery - Vera Saltzman: O Human Child. July 2 to Aug. 23, 2019. Vera Saltzman’s exhibition O Human Child features 18 black and white portraits of Saskatchewan children photographed in their own environments: in small towns and rural communities, on ranches, First Nations Territory, and farms. An award-winning photographer, Saltzman set out to understand her new prairie home and ask how things have changed since W.O. Mitchell wrote “Who Has See The Wind”, his iconic 1947 Canadian novel. These 18 unflinching portraits remind us of the complexity and emotional depth of childhood. 49 Smith St E., Yorkton, SK, 11 a.m. - 5 p.m. Mon. to Fri., 1-4 p.m. Sat. Admission is always free!
