  • Kay Parley Artist Talk part Two

    Wednesday, June 27, 2018

    Inside the Civic Museum series presents An Evening with Kay Parley
    Wednesday, June 27, 7 pm
    Civic Museum of Regina 1231 Broad Street
    Seating is Limited
    FREE Event

    Kay Parley began drawing before the age of four, but it wasn’t until high school that she took any formal type of training. Although she studied to be a commercial artist, her love of the fieldstone homes and buildings from her childhood home in Moffat called her.

    With a nudge from her father, who thought they deserved to be preserved, she painted her first one in 1941. When the community of Moffat, south of Wolseley, planned an anniversary celebration, she embarked on her celebrated series of paintings. She also began writing a community history, They Cast a Long Shadow: The History of Moffat, Saskatchewan, which inspired sketches of the stone buildings to illustrate the book. She continued sketching stone buildings from all over the province.

    Demonstration of how quickly the Spanish Flu spread. One group of audience members was declared infected and stood up. Since they had earlier shaken hands with their ‘neighbour’, those folks were also infected... God rest their souls.

  • College Avenue Campus Restoration - 2018 Lecture Series

    Tuesday, February 6, 2018

    The Artesian 2627 13th Avenue

    Join Heritage Consultant Donald Luxton for an illustrated talk on the historic College Avenue Campus, including its history, decline and current renewal. The history of the site dates back to the establishment of Regina College in 1911, the subsequent construction of Darke Hall and the establishment of the University of Regina. Long neglected, this significant Collegiate Gothic campus is undergoing a comprehensive five-year rehabilitation that will result in a complete renewal, including its historic interior spaces. This talk will cover all aspects of the project including the work completed to date, and that anticipated over the next three years.

    Donald Luxton is the principal of a leading western Canadian heritage and cultural resource management firm, and over the last thirty years his wide-ranging career has included the development of municipal planning programs, the restoration of numerous heritage buildings and the development of many significant cultural facilities. Donald’s expertise, interest and accomplishments as an author, educator and practitioner have been recognized and acknowledged through numerous awards, including the Heritage Canada Achievement Award in 2003 and a number of literary prizes including a BC Book Prize in 2004.

    He is currently acting as the Heritage Consultant for the College Avenue Renewal.
