Maybe there is hope for culture in Saskatchewan


While Paul Werner doesn't hold much hope out for art in Saskatchewan, it appears that in Regina, they have figured out a way to do things better than in New York. In New York, the cliche goes, that you email 'impo'tent' people jpegs of paintings to entice them to buy them. You need to 'know' the right person in order to have the privilige of buying a piece of art. And then they throw a fancy, and expensive, party to flaunt everything.

In Regina, people line up outside the door of the art gallery before it opens, and then buy a painting when ushered in. No muss, no fuss, no jpegs, no party.
