The Noon Hour Slides program at the Moose Jaw Museum & Art Gallery (MJMAG) is seeking fresh input for its batch of spring presentations, and museum staff have said that anyone with someone interesting to say and show can apply to be part of it.

Noon Hour Slides takes place in the fall and spring, on Wednesdays from 12:15 to 1 p.m. Presenters get 45 minutes to talk about their photos to gatherings in the MJMAG Theatre, with a Zoom link for anyone joining virtually.

Autumn's presentations are:

  • September 20 - Vincent Houghtaling - Iceland
  • September 27 - Gayle Jones - Norway
  • October 4 - Karla Rasmussen - San Francisco
  • October 11 - Dave Wentworth - Amazon Rainforest
  • October 18 - Christy Schweiger - Belize Part 2

All presentations are video archived and can be watched on the MJMAG YouTube channel at, or on the MJMAG website at The MJMAG website is also where the Zoom links can be accessed.

According to Vincent Houghtaling, administrative assistant at the MJMAG, most presentations have between 100 to 200 photos. Presenters are often so happy to talk about their photos and what they learned on their adventure that the 45 minutes flies by.

"When I did my Iceland presentation, I actually only got about halfway through, I had so much to say," Houghtaling chuckled. When asked about the process of applying to present, he said that they have a regular line-up of people who document their travels through photos, and they would welcome new presenters and topics.

"We do have people presenting their travels from, you know, further away, or around the world, but we've also had presenters talk just about Moose Jaw, or close to Moose Jaw, whether that's historical buildings, wildlife, other subjects. If it's interesting and people have something to say about it, we'd like to hear it," Houghtaling said.

This year's 'batch' of Noon Hour Slides presentation are set (Houghtaling prefers to avoid scheduling them during the more extreme winter months), but he said he's seeking presenters for the spring. Presentations will likely start up again sometime in March.

If you have an adventure you'd like to tell people about on the big screen at the MJMAG Theatre, email Vincent Houghtaling to make your pitch, at
