Organized by the Wood Mountain Historical Society for inclusion in the "Legends of Our Times" exhibition organized by the Canadian Museum of Civilization

This exhibition tells the story of First Nations involvement in rodeo and ranching culture. "Whatever we did, wherever we went, we took our horses with us. When our Lakota Sioux grandfathers and grandmothers came to Canada in 1877, after the Battle of the Little Bighorn, they brought hundreds of horses with them. They were a horse people."

Brenda Pelkey - Spaces of Tranformation
November 4 to December 26, 2004

Co-organized by the Moose Jaw Museum & Art Gallery, the Medicine Hat Museum
and Art Gallery, and the Thames Gallery,Chatham,Ontario

Saskatoon photographer Brenda Pelkey's most recent series of photographs are of the depopulated interiors of bars and hospitals. "Itis rather more likely that these equal and oppositely-charged spaces - bars and hospitals - are inhabitable ambiguities, the sites of unpredictable morality plays, the endings of which are never
clear, are shrouded in the inexplicable, the undeterminable, the fearfully unknowable."
