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.

“They’re all pictures of myself or my family,” said Lanning, who manages three galleries in Weyburn. “I treat the pottery almost like a canvas. And then I paint upon it and then I do slip trailing as well. The blackout lines are done with clay slip which is basically like a clay sass that’s used primarily to glue pieces of pottery when they’re being built together.”
