After Dark/After Hours: May 10 @ 8pm
Join us on Friday, May 10th at 8pm for our next installment of After Dark/After Hours. This concert series will feature The Dustin Ritter Band. The Dustin Ritter Band from Regina, Saskatchewan "play fast-paced high-energy indie rock. This four-piece offers audiences guitar driven rock layered under sincere (and often amusing) lyrics... their unique chord voicing and complex rhythmic elements make the The Dustin Ritter Band worth hearing" (Alex Macpherson, VERB). The original line up formed in the summer of 2009 and quickly wrote their debut full length album Dead Airwaves which was recorded in the fall of that year. John Bidochka from CBC Radio One has described the DRB's debut as "Upbeat and whimsical songs with a catchy, yet cool delivery. The Dustin Ritter Band is certainly a band to watch for in the coming years. Keep some room on your iPod, you will need it as these guys continue to deliver”. With influences iike The Band, Neil Young, The Wooden Sky, Tom Petty, QOTSA and RHCP the DRB’s melodic rock sound crosses over many musical styles including rock, roots, reggae, punk, folk and funk. Their musical versatility allows the band to play any type of venue and entertain a wide variety of audiences. The DRB toured Western Canada in the winter of 2011 and are currently planning a Canadian tour for the winter of 2014 in support of their follow up album Drunk and Drowning. The DRB is Dustin Ritter (guitar/vocals), Cyprian Henry (drums), Jon Fearnside (bass/vocals), and Orin Paquette (lead guitar/vocals). The After Dark portion of the evening will feature the band acoustic in the gallery. The After Hours portion will feature them plugged-in in Eddie's lounge. Tickets for this event are $10 at the door, with all proceeds going to the artists. All ages are welcome to attend, and refreshments will be served.

The EAGM hosts receptions for exhibiting artists whenever possible. Events such as these allow visitors to meet artists and learn more about their work. The artists give a brief talk or walkthrough of their art practice and answer questions from the crowd. The gallery provides refreshments throughout the event. Artist Receptions last approx. 2 hours, and are "come and go" style. There is no dress code and everyone is invited to attend. Children are also welcome to come with their families. Scheduled artist talks are typically congruent with the receptions and begin approximately 1/2 hour into the reception.

Please make note that the EAGM has introduced NEW hours, which took effect in February 2012. Check out our contact page for more information! Also undergoing some changes is our Membership campaign, which will be reflected on our website in the upcoming weeks. Please check back soon.
