In 2020, Dr. John Archer Library and Archives acquired the archival materials of Canadian artist Mary Filer (1920-2016), whose artistic training began in Regina. The collection was donated by David Lemon, a long-time friend of Filer and her family, and his wife, Sylvia L’Ecuyer.

The physical collection contains over 4,500 items documenting Filer’s artwork, demonstrating the development of her artistic processes and style over 50 years. This online exhibit showcases some of the range from this collection, including Filer’s series of watercolours documenting Regina in the 1940s, linocuts and charcoals from the 1950s and 1960s, and abstract works produced in the 1980s.
