She will evaluate on Nov. 3 with the artists from noon to 4 p.m. She will also offer a workshop on Nov. 4, with the topic to be announced at a later date. A public reception will happen on Nov. 3 from 4-7 p.m.

Norlen received a bachelor of fine arts degree with honours from the University of Manitoba in 1987, and a master’s of fine arts from Yale University in 1989.

Selected solo exhibitions include Eccentricity at the Estevan Art Gallery & Museum. She has also been exhibited in Canada, the U.S., South Korea, the Netherlands, the U.K. and Brazil.

“My work is autobiographical, recording sensory experience, incorporating storytelling and personal narration, utilizing a documentary approach, culminating in a visual diary,” Norlen said. “It is derivative of observations, recollections and interpretations of experience, travel and theoretical cultural research. My research involves obsessively collecting, visually, mentally documenting, and finally, building sketches, drawings and sculptures.”

Norlen is currently teaching at the University of Saskatchewan.

Brochures and entry forms for the art show are available at the Estevan Arts Council office. For more information, please visit the organization’s website or contact the office.

The deadline for registration is Oct. 19.
