 LOUISE COOK - A Painted Diary, Works 1985-2018
Reception: Saturday, October 20, 2PM
October 20 - November 29
>> click here for images
Art Placement is delighted to present the exhibition, A Painted Diary, surveying more than three decades of Louise Cook’s landscape painting. Cook’s work debuted in Saskatoon at the Mendel Art Gallery in 1973 and she has exhibited with Art Placement since 1985. Contributing to Saskatchewan’s strong tradition of landscape painting, Cook’s unique vision of the ever-changing prairies and boreal forests of the province remains rooted in direct observation, capturing the essence of place as it is experienced firsthand. Throughout the decades, she has had the opportunity to paint numerous far-flung corners of Saskatchewan’s wilderness, while also returning regularly to a handful of favourite locales. As such, the exhibition offers both a snapshot of the diversity of the province’s terrain, as well as intense focus on familiar locations with careful attention to the subtleties of time and place.

 

Upcoming Exhibitions

 

 

 CLINT HUNKER - About a Lake
Reception: Saturday, December 1, 2PM
December 1 - January 10
>> click here for images
Art Placement is pleased to present the exhibition, About a Lake, showcasing the latest suite of landscape paintings and drawings by Clint Hunker. Since the age of 16, Hunker has painted and drawn the Saskatchewan landscape. Following in the footsteps of notable prairie artists like Reta Cowley and Augustus Kenderdine among others, he is a field painter who works predominantly on site with nature serving as both his inspiration and studio. His paintings, in the tradition of the great impressionist masters, are characterized by their focus on light, the subtleties of colour, and loose yet precisely placed brushstrokes. Quiet and contemplative, each painting is a meditation on solitude, silence, and beauty within the prairie landscape.

Art Placement is pleased to present this exhibition of Robert Christie’s most recent paintings and painted constructions. For nearly fifty years, Christie has steadfastly explored a range of possibilities within the arena of abstract painting. Throughout these five decades and continuing to this day, his studio remains a testing ground for visual experimentation and aesthetic exploration, with an unwavering and unifying interest in colour, surface, form, and composition. The diverse selection of recent works are at once minimal and complex; clean and modern with reduced forms and monochromatic colour, combined with surfaces that are intensely worked, richly layered, and luxuriously textured.

 figureground
Reception: coffeehouse: Saturday, June 23, 2PM - 4PM
June 23 - August 2
>> click here for images
Figurative art abounds throughout the art historical record, remaining central within the Western canon until at least the beginning of the twentieth century. Even today there are numerous artists working with the human form. In Saskatoon, a city with an artistic legacy largely defined by other genres and movements, a small but vital community of painters nevertheless continues to nurture the figurative tradition. Their work converses with historical precedents, contemporary developments, and the particular conditions and histories of the local context. The result is a unique snapshot of an enduring yet continuously evolving tradition. Featuring works by Joseph Anderson, Kristin Bjornerud, Riisa Gundesen, Iris Hauser, Ernest Lindner, Dane Moore, Dawna Rose, Betsy Rosenwald, Lorna Russell, Paul Sisetski, Dmytro Stryjek, and Carol Wylie.

 ART for SALE at The Art Gallery of Swift Current
Reception: Friday, March 16, 7PM
March 3 - April 22
>> click here for images
Commercial galleries and artwork sales are important to sustaining the arts ecology in our time. Commercial galleries serve the public by providing access to artwork for private ownership and use in a home or business space. A commercial gallery serves the artist by presenting their artwork publicly. They nurture an audience and buyers for the artist’s work, helping to sustain an artist’s practice and building credibility for their art expression. The Art Gallery of Swift Current's exhibition, “Art for Sale”, examines two major Saskatchewan commercial galleries: The Gallery / Art Placement of Saskatoon – now celebrating its 40th year – and Slate Fine Art Gallery of Regina, established only a few years ago. This exhibition will introduce us to the major artists, newly established artists, and emerging artists of Saskatchewan represented by these galleries. See fine artworks which are for sale, learn how to buy an artwork and why we should, and come to better appreciate the quality of fine artwork and professionalism offered by commercial galleries.
