“It is a unique event,” said Don Stein, Executive Director of the Godfrey Dean Gallery.

“The visual works you see here in textile form are directly inspired by the poem, and thusly paired. The visuals come from the artist’s interpretation of the poet’s text.”

FAN artists come exclusively from the Western provinces of Canada, with the distinct variety of outlook  covering the cultural range of Saskatchewan, Alberta, and Manitoba.

The Yorkton presentation of the Ekphrastic exhibition was curated by Donald Stein and Edith Skeard, assisted by Nickita Longman of Winnipeg.
