Monday to Friday
Godfrey Dean Art Gallery provides people in the Yorkton region, and their visitors, a meaningful engagement with visual arts. The purpose of the gallery is to increase the visual literacy level of all people living in the Yorkton region, to increase their aesthetic appreciation and enjoyment of art, and to provide educational development opportunities for artists. Public programming at Godfrey Dean Art Gallery responds to the cultural diversity of the Yorkton community. As the only professionally-operated public art gallery within a 150 km radius of Yorkton, the Godfrey Dean Gallery curates, exhibits and promotes the work of local, provincial and national contemporary artists. Through workshops and diverse public programming, the gallery strives to fulfill its mandate to educate, entice and challenge our region within the realm of visual literacy.
Always embracing change, Godfrey Dean Art Gallery opens exhibits every six to eight weeks. It also welcomes community organizations and schools, and performers and musicians to contribute to the artistic climate of the gallery. Godfrey Dean Art Gallery itself is an exhibit of imaginative thinking in a contemporary rural society.
