The Regina Art Collective (RAC) established in 2015 is a collaborative group of artists that have come together to promote their work outside of the commercial gallery model.

Coming out of the structure of much larger guilds, RAC believes that a smaller collaborative group of practicing artists contributes to each artist’s personal growth in practice and professional development in addition to supporting the exposure of their talents and artistic endeavours.

The Lobby Gallery

Theatre Regina, the Regina Art Collective (RAC), and the Sâkêwêwak Artists’ Collective partnered to transform the reception area of the Regina Performing Arts Centre into an art gallery. The Lobby Gallery officially opened on September 7, 2017, and has been showcasing the works of local artists ever since.

Featured Artist

Nikki Jacquin is a self-taught artist mentored through many of the various arts programs available to her during the early years of her practice. During her 25 years as a practicing artist, she has become well known for her portraiture. Nikki is a natural teacher and her workshops both in the studio and in the field are highly praised by both burgeoning and professional artists. She is a visual explorer and is sustained by traveling to other countries where she paints the busy streets, people, and captures the flavours of the culture.

Nikki’s landscapes, and architectural details that capture her attention along with her paintings of flora and fauna are thoughtful and graceful. She translates her visions with acrylic and oil as well as graphite and watercolour and copper metals. She transforms many of her works into wearable designs.
