the eye of an artist
a visual journey with Bob Regier

What do artists do? How do they see the world?

This exhibit explores the interrelationship of perception and visual modes of communication through the life and work of North Newton artist and designer Bob Regier. Behind the finished works, framed and hung on the gallery wall, lie process, history, and journey.

•learning the language
designing for print
discovering the prairie
engaging the classroom
shaping worship
crafting exhibit spaces
