All are welcome to join renowned Plains Cree artist and University of Saskatchewan alumna Ruth Cuthand (BFA'83, MFA'92) as she beads at Gordon Oakes Red Bear Student Centre on Wednesday afternoons. 

Cuthand has been a mentor to many young artists, both Indigenous and non-Indigenous.

In 2016, she was named as one of the College of Arts and Science’s Alumni of Influence.
