SUMMERSIDE, P.E.I. —

Getting all the respect of chalk favourite, Woodmere Ideal Art cruised through every fraction on his way to victory in the Sunday afternoon feature at Red Shores at the Summerside Raceway.
Norris Rogers sent the heavily favoured Woodmere Ideal Art sharply off the wings from Post 4 and led through fractions of :28, :57 and 1:26 before fighting off a late challenge from Heart And Soul (Mark Bradley) to win by half a length in 1:55.3.
Third went to Soccer Hanover (Adam Merner). Owned by the Ultimate Stable of New Brunswick, Sifroi Melanson trains the winning son of Articulator.
Ken Murphy was the hottest reinsman of the day with five trips to the Prince County winner’s circle on the 10-dash card.
The first of the Harrington driver’s quintet was in the opener with a maiden-breaking score for Sweet Silvia in 2:00.4 for trainer Frank Hansen. The Eric Doucette-trained Rymar Jimbo was Murphy’s next victory in 1:59 followed by a win with Cinder Angelina in 2:00 from the Jaycob Sweet barn in Race 5.
Race 6 saw Murphy win with Dividend Day in 2:00.1 for trainer Fred Paynter while the afternoon finale was a Murphy score of 1:57.4 aboard Pictonian Storm for trainer Wade Sorrie.

Southern Alberta Art Gallery Is Honoured With A Blackfoot Naming Ceremony

Published

 on

(Lethbridge) – A Blackfoot Naming Ceremony was held at the Southern Alberta Art Gallery (SAAG) on Friday, October 23, 2020.

The event began with a Treaty and Metis land acknowledgment. “We would like to acknowledge that the Southern Alberta Art Gallery is located on Treaty 7, as well as Métis Region 3, the traditional territory of the Blackfoot Confederacy, a historic collective name of the four bands that make up the Blackfoot or Blackfeet people: Siksika (Blackfoot), Kainai (Blood), Northern Piegan (Piikani), and Southern Piegan (Blackfeet, Montana). We also acknowledge the Stoney Nakota, Tsuu’tina, Inuit and Métis peoples of this area.”

The ceremony was then led by Elder Bruce Wolf Child and First Nations Education, Language & Cultural Consultant and Elder Mary Fox, and the SAAG was greatly honoured to receive the Blackfoot name Maansiksikaitsitapiitsinikssin.

“The SAAG Board of Directors and Staff are extremely grateful that the gallery was gifted with a Blackfoot name by local Kainai Elders, and we are committed to our journey of living into this name,” stated SAAG Executive Director Kristy Trinier. “We are honoured to share the Blackfoot name and its meaning with our community.”

The name Maansiksikaitsitapiitsinikssin connects the Blackfoot language words: maan it is new, siksikaitsitapii (of) our Blackfoot people, tsinikssin relating stories through the process of images and writings.

Bryce Singer, Niipáítapiiyssin (Life), 2019. Mixed media, limited edition print.

On the occasion of receiving Maansiksikaitsitapiitsinikssin, local Kainai artist Bryce Singer was commissioned to create a limited series of commemorative artwork prints.

 

Maansiksikaitsitapiitsinikssin can be interpreted as the new making of images, related to the telling of the Blackfoot peoples’ stories.

The name is well suited to SAAG and its leaders are honoured by the ceremony.

Maansiksikaitsitapiitsinikssin describes contemporary art as the new process of making images and writings, related to the telling of ancient stories by Blackfoot people within Blackfoot territory: a continuation across time in the sharing of knowledge, culture, and history across southern Alberta.

“In prioritizing the health and safety of our community,” explained Trinier, “the Blackfoot Naming Ceremony took place with limited invitation-only capacity and precautionary measures, to prevent the transmission of COVID-19.

“We plan to have a celebration with the greater community in the future when it is safe to do so.”

Red Deer city council opts to leave public art selection to a commission – Red Deer Advocate

Published

 on


Red Deer city council quadrupled the size of municipal projects that would trigger the one-per-cent budget spending on public art — raising the threshold from $250,000 to $1 million.

But most councillors refused to takeover decision-making authority on public art installations from the public art commission.

This last suggestion was floated by Coun. Vesna Higham, who mentioned two controversial Calgary public artworks that were largely derided by taxpayers as a waste of money. One of them was a large metal hoop, costing $400,000.

Higham said she didn’t feel right allowing non-elected officials on a commission to have the authority to spend taxpayer money. People elect city council for that purpose, added Higham, who wanted an art committee to make recommendations to council, who would have final authority.

But other councillors refused to wade into the thorny area of second-guessing what a group made up of art experts, as well as general citizens, decides.

Coun. Tanya Handley said art is subjective. Contradicting a committee’s opinion would not only be awkward but would indicate little respect for the group members’ time or expertise, she added.

Three years ago, council decided to upgrade a former art committee to the present art commission specifically to give it the authority to adjudicate art without having to get council’s approval.

Two un-elected citizens are appointed to serve on the Municipal Planning Commission, entrusted with making major development decisions — so why not trust un-elected citizens with the selection of public art, a councillor noted.

Coun. Lawrence Lee said having an art selection commission has worked well, with few people taking issue with installations such as the bronze statues of young hockey players and a referee in front of Servus Arena. “We have to trust in the process.”

Coun. Dianne Wyntjes did not favour raising the threshold for when one per cent of a municipal construction project’s budget would need to be put aside for public art. It used to be when projects hit $250,000. Administration had recommended this be raised to $500,000.

But most councillors eventually voted to raise the threshold to $1 million after hearing that only once in the last decade had a project worth less than $1 million triggered a public art component.

While the regional economic slump was one rationalization given for this change, Lee also reasoned that a certain amount of money would be needed to pay the artist for a quality artwork that was substantive and meaningful.

Wyntjes believes that public art adds so much to a community’s public spaces that it’s one of the most important legacies for any city council.
