Carmen Robertson, Sherry Farrell Racette
University of Regina Press, 2009 - Art - 80 pages
In 2005, as part of the province s centennial celebrations, the Saskatchewan Arts Board contracted Sherry Farrell Racette and Carmen Robertson to curate an exhibition which would bring together a diverse group of contemporary artists working in traditional Indigenous media, all of whom had been recipients of the then nascent Traditional Artist Grant program. WhenClearing A Pathopened in November of that year, few could have predicted the strength of its work. More than three years later, the exhibition continues to flourish and tour. This catalogue includes introductory essays by the curators, along with photographs of the exhibition pieces and artist statements from 21 participating artists."
