About the Estevan Arts Council
We are governed by a 12-member board appointed by Estevan City Council. It was formed in 1967 by a City bylaw. Board meetings are held on the first Wednesday of each month, except July and August. The Council is funded by grants, subscribers, patrons, fees, and donations. Estevan Arts Council is an affiliate of the Organization of Saskatchewan Arts Councils. However, we are always looking for volunteer members to serve on our board, committees or as paid instructors for visual arts classes.
The Estevan Concert series, powered by Stars for Saskatchewan, is proud to promote arts and culture by bringing excellent entertainment to the City of Estevan. Funded by the Organization of Saskatchewan Arts Councils (OSAC), SaskCulture, Saskatchewan Lotteries, and the Saskatchewan Arts Board, the Estevan Concert Series is committed to providing the most enjoyable concert experience for everyone.

This year’s art show winner, Byron Fichter. Fichter submitted work was landscape photography with a focus on abandonment and decay. “It is just really interesting to photograph stuff that is here now in a very dilapidated state but I always ask, how long is it going to last? I think it is important to record that history,” said Byron Fichter.
