Temporary Exhibitions

With a variety of temporary exhibits on display throughout the year, there is always something new to see at the Sam Waller Museum. Hosting five to six temporary exhibits annually, our Susan MacCharles Gallery is the place in The Pas to see museum and visual arts displays. We host an annual local art show, student art show, in-house museum exhibits, and a variety of traveling exhibits from museums in other parts of the province and the country. We also partner with the local The Pas Arts Council to bring a stunning range of visual arts exhibits to the community.

  • Trying So Hard to be So Hard / Hard Kids - ON NOW!

    Karen Astrid Clark is interested in the social comment that artwork offers. Concern for people and the environment of her northern home are increasingly part of her art's subject matter. An important value in her art is celebrating the rugged edgy northern beauty and extending the invitation to others to join in regarding it with reverance.

    Each portrait in the show presents a face of "Hard". The expressions speak of defense that is successful or not so successful at hiding emotions within. The audience will be surprised by the intensity of expressions achieved with dye, wax and fabric and moved to reach for meaning as they imagine the related back-stories.

    The exhibit will be displayed in the Susan MacCharles Gallery at the Sam Waller Museum from January 8 to March 23.
