Jane’s Walk celebrates the ideas and legacy of urbanist Jane Jacobs by getting people out exploring their neighbourhoods and meeting their neighbours. Free walking tours held on the first weekend of May each year are led by locals who want to create a space for residents to talk about what matters to them in the places they live and work.

Sures: A Sensual Touch a film by Linda Corbett
: Eyeris Inc., 2011.
This film is approx. 26 minutes long
Sensual, seductive, juicy,
voluptuous, magic. These are some of the words people use to describe Jack Sures’
work in clay. It’s an intimate relationship that has lasted over five decades.
In JACK SURES_a sensual touch,
filmmaker Linda Corbettpresents
the magnificent public mural work of this internationally renowned Canadian
artist. Born in the small prairie town of Melita, Manitoba, by the 1960’s Jack
had studied in the U.S.A., travelled in Europe and worked at Chelsea Pottery in
London, England and on the Tel Katzir Kibbutz in Israel.
“The first time I touched clay
you could feel this organic, living mass ready to grow into something.” - Jack
The deepest influences on his work have been
Japanese aesthetics, Surrealism and the work of Hieronymus Bosch, but as part
of the Regina Clay Movement, his early art flirted with California Funk
imagery. As the film examines his murals for the Sturdy-Stone Centre, the
Canadian Museum of Civilization, the Mino ‘89 / International Ceramics
Competition and other locations we grow to appreciate how Jack Sures’ art
engages us outside the gallery in an art experience that celebrates the tactile
connections to nature in our everyday lives.
“He is as
plastic as the material he is using.” - Timothy Long
