Slow Art Day – Window Art Show


In non pandemic times, our Artists’ Workshop group holds our annual spring show and sale at Grace Westminster Church. Since we haven’t been able to do that this year or last, we have a new way to share our art with you. We would like to invite you to our Slow Art Day Window Art Show.

Beginning on Slow Art Day, April 10, until April 23, our work will be displayed in ‘window art shows’ at City Perks and Sparrow Coffee shops here in Saskatoon.

Some artworks will be displayed facing outward in the windows of the two coffee shops and more will be shown indoors, with ample space for viewing safely. Grab a coffee, have a seat outside, or do a slow walk by and discover the art of nine local artists.

City Perks Coffeehouse is located at 801 7th Avenue North and Sparrow Coffee is at #120-536 2nd Avenue North. They offer curbside pick-up, takeout, and patio seating.


WHY SLOW?

Slow Art Day is an international event held every April to encourage all of us to spend a bit more time looking at art. When you look slowly at a pieces of art you make discoveries. You see things you wouldn’t have noticed in a quick glance. You can reflect on what the art stirs up in you, what it reminds you of, and how it makes you feel.

HOW CAN YOU TAKE PART?

Starting on April 10th, you can: 
  • View the art – at the coffee shops and/or on our Facebook page online
  • Look slowly – at those pieces that catch your attention
  • Consider the questions – three are posted with each piece
  • Share your commentson our Facebook page
  • Purchase a favorite piece – all art is for sale through direct contact with the individual artists
