A special partnership with the Saskatchewan German Council. Toured through OSAC’s Arts on the Move program.

Scherenschnitte (scissor cuts) is an art form where silhouettes are cut from one piece of special black paper with scissors or knives with no ‘hangers’- unattached pieces. Scissor cutting has a long history in German folk art; immigrants brought Scherenschnitte to North America in the 17th Century. Reflecting the Canadian artists in Scissor Cuts/ Scherenschnitte, this collection of works ranges from traditional German Scherenschnitte represented by Waltraude Stehwien, a German immigrant, to papercut evolved into sculpture by Jess Richter- second generation born in Canada.

For more information on where the exhibit will be next, please visit the Organization of Saskatchewan’s Arts Council’s website.

Office Holiday Hours

Please be aware that our office will be closed starting on December 25, 2019 all the way through to January 5, 2020. Regular office hours will resume on January 6, 2020.

The cultural center acts primarily as a meeting place, venue and as a central contact point for the Germans from Russia. It advises and supports cultural professionals of the target group and documents their history.

With ever-changing exhibitions, readings and lectures, the centre would like to give an insight into the history and culture of the Germans from Russia, to raise awareness of the fate of this now very large ethnic group.

For more information on their goals and activities, please visit their website.
