The Dalnavert Museum Ghost Investigation on Oct. 13 will take participants on a ghost-hunting expedition through the famously haunted building. Ticket prices vary.

Attention | Intention | Emergence
A collaboration between Winnipeg-based artist Monique Fillion and Regina painter Carl Schlademan, Attention | Intention | Emergence creates a conversation between two painters using similar approaches to create wildly different artwork. While both stress visible, painterly brushstrokes, Fillion's abstractions are in sharp contrast to Schlademan’s lush depictions of nature. Admission is free.
