Confluence is the result of Saskatchewan artist, Susan Shantz’, artistic and scientific exploration into the water sources that sustain our province: from the glaciers in the Rocky Mountains of Alberta water flows across the prairies in the South and North Saskatchewan Rivers, joining to create an enormous delta near the Manitoba border. Drawing on field trips to sites along the river, she uses a variety media (from textiles to videography) to consider the currents that connect us in this prairie water basin.
