2024 Dr. John Archer Library Award Winner

Congratulations to the latest winner of our annual Dr. John Archer Library Award, Lindsay Demchuk, who’s winning essay was about her final project for ARTH 324: Canadian Identity and Cultural Identity. “I am very interested in Regina-based art history,” Demchuk writes, “especially the “Regina Clay” ceramic folk art movement. My electronic exhibition included a return to the “Canada Trajectoires ‘73” exhibition, which was held in Paris in 1973 and involved a number of ceramists connected to Regina Clay. I obtained the French-language exhibition catalogue through the Archer Library. The catalogue significantly informed my report, entitled ‘Regina 1973: Trajectories in Clay’.”
