Emily LeMesurier

About Emily LeMesurier

“I am inspired by my everyday life. I am interested in how people, places, and pets make up the landscape that is our lives. Our social reality—our relationship to each other and to our surroundings and how that becomes part of our daily life.

I am interested in images that reference the snap shot – an image maybe taken from a cell phone, something that wasn’t formal- something a friend took. Private moments shared amongst friends, family, and lovers.

I work with images of the everyday, capturing candid, fleeting moments in our lives—moments that we sometimes wish could last forever, that second before they slip away.”

When You Buy a Lottery Ticket in Saskatchewan, Where Does That Money Go?

If you’re going out to get Lotto 649, Lotto Max, or other lottery tickets in Saskatchewan, you’re not only giving yourself an opportunity to win a lot of money. Funds raised are going to support sport, culture, and culture right in your province, including the funding organizations for the Cultural Exchange.

So next time you’re having some responsible fun, know that some of that money finds its way towards supporting the arts in Saskatchewan! For more information, go to the Saskatchewan Lotteries’ page on who benefits from lottery sales.

Recently Announced: the Bros Landreth

Our show announcements are going deeper and deeper into the fall. Recently, we told you the Regina Folk Festival Concert Series is bringing Ron Sexsmith to the Exchange on September 30. Now, we can say that Rawk Entertainment are putting up the Bros Landreth in the Exchange on October 18 along with Donovan Woods.

The Bros Landreth, a couple of whom are, indeed, brothers, released their debut album, Let It Lie, earlier in 2015. It’s a tribute to the Americana rock sounds from their home of Winnipeg, MB and far beyond. Woods, the Sarnia, On born and raised singer-songwriter, has been justly praised for his third album, 2013’s Don’t Get Too Grand.

Advance tickets are on sale at Rebellion Brewing Company, X-Ray Records, and online at TicketEdge.

SNFU Celebrate an Anniversary

If you know anything about SNFU, the seminal Canadian hardcore group, you’ll know they’re all pretty wild. In their nearly 35 years of existence, they’ve never taken it down a notch onstage or off.

So, you might not take the Vancouver group, led by Mr. Chi Pig, as the nostalgic type. Nevertheless, they’re celebrating the 30th anniversary of their debut album, … And No One Else Wanted to Play, with a whole tour in its honour. Each night, they’re playing the record in its entirety.

SNFU are in the Exchange on Monday, July 20 with the Extroverts and the Royal Red Brigade. Doors at 7 p.m. Advance tickets are $15 and are available at X-Ray Records. $20 at the door. All ages and licensed.
