Opening Reception: Saturday, May 23, 2020
Family in attendance to share stories and insight into Godwin and his work.
Known as “the Kid”, Godwin was a professor at the University of Regina in the 50s and 60s, and one of five artists to be exhibited at the National Gallery of Canada in the 60s; where the group was called “The Regina Five” and the name stuck. An innovative and inspiration group of artists and professors that put western Canada on the map of action expressionism at the time. Godwin embraced his creativity and experimented and grew from his time in Regina and continued to create throughout his career until his passing in 2013. This exhibition will celebrate a man that embodied his art and continually was creating. The exhibition will span works from his early years in Regina until his later landscape works in the 2000s.
