The Artwork of Robert Newton Hurley

Location: 3 Campus Drive, Murray Library Link

Dates: August 2 - October 28th, 2016

Curator: Amy Putnam

This exhibit showcases the vast collection of materials that the University Archives and Special Collections own on the talented Saskatchewan artist, Robert Newton Hurley. Hurley is known for his colourful landscapes depicting the beauty of the prairies, and while the collection does feature a few wonderful examples of these, this exhibit focuses on the lesser known works. Here you will find his pen and pencil sketches of landscapes, people, flora and fauna; colourful abstract pieces, which he called "Hurleyniks"; as well as photos and other biographical memorobilia. Learn more about this british born, but Saskatchewan made artist, and check out the Robert Newton Hurley exhibit this fall.
