 Summer Show
Reception: N/A
June 23 - July 11
>> click here for more information
Art Placement presents an eclectic group show for the start of summer. Featuring recent and re-worked paintings by Louise Cook that explore the theme of the figure in the landscape; impactful new medium- and large-scale abstract constructions by Robert Christie; elegant and understated mixed media works by Jordan Danchilla; two delightful landscapes--one in oil and the other in watercolour--by Dorothy Knowles, highlighting the diversity of media and style throughout her oeuvre; gorgeous and gestural abstracted landscapes by Nancy Lowry; vibrant and painterly scenes of Emma Lake by Rebecca Perehudoff; colourful stylized landscapes from Pat Service; and the first works in a brand new series of nocturnes by Ian Rawlinson that beautifully capture the play of the fading evening light, with rippling water refracting colour into abstract patterns, and Rawlinson's sensitive and adventurous handling of materials, techniques, and surfaces.

 

Upcoming Exhibitions

 

 

 LESLIE POTTER - RETROUVER: Future Landscapes & Artefacts
Reception: N/A
July 15 - August 29
>> click here for more information
Art Placement is pleased to present the first major exhibition of Leslie Potter’s work at the gallery since 2013. Best known for his largescale outdoor sculptures, which can be found throughout the city, this latest exhibition presents a lesser known side of Potter’s material practice. Exploring collage as a method and an aesthetic, the show brings together a selection of two- and three-dimensional works in a variety of media, all ongoing over the last several years. Intimate and introspective, each work is a meditation on Potter’s identity as an artist as well as larger social and environmental issues. Leslie Potter has been exhibiting his work since the early 1970s, including public commissions for the City of Saskatoon, City of Prince Albert, Town of Outlook, and the University of Saskatchewan. His work can also be found in numerous private and public collections locally and nationally.

 Group Show
Reception: N/A
May 20 - June 20
>> click here for more information
Art Placement is pleased to present a late spring group show featuring select works by gallery artists with a focus on vibrant colour, strong lines, and bold, graphic shapes. We are delighted to include a collection of recently arrived paintings by William Perehudoff, never before exhibited. The four works span more than three decades of Perehudoff's production, from the late 1970s to the early 2000s, including a rare work from 2003, the last year he was active in the studio, and likely one of the last major works on canvas that he painted. Other highlights of the exhibition include paintings on paper by Dawna Rose, a mixed media collage by Jordan Danchilla, paintings by Martin Bennett, a recent, large-scale egg tempera panel by Lorenzo Dupuis, a brand new selection of contemporary abstractions by Steph Krawchuk, recent painting-constructions by Robert Christie, a suite of drawings by Douglas Bentham, and Ruth Cuthand's 'Don't Breathe, Don't Drink' series, exhibited for the first time in Saskatoon.

 

 

 Spring Arrivals
Reception: N/A
April 18 - May 9
>> click here for more information
Beauty, inspiration, creativity, and joy are needed now more than ever. We aren't able to welcome you into the gallery at this time, but that doesn't mean we can't continue to bring art into your life in other ways. We're still here. We're still available. And we're still conducting business. We're just doing it a little bit differently: connecting and sharing online; over the phone and from a distance; and arranging pick-ups and deliveries with a smile. For the time being, our regular exhibition program will be put on pause. In its place we will run a series of shortened exhibitions view-able online, and in our front window galleries. If you're out for a stroll in downtown Saskatoon, swing by our storefront to take a peek. Something new every few weeks. If you're staying in, click through to view and enjoy the works from the comfort of your home. If you have questions or need any assistance, just let us know how we can help.

 JANE HARINGTON - Belonging
Reception: Saturday, March 7, 2PM
March 7 - April 16
>> click here for more information
Art Placement is pleased to present Jane Harington’s first solo exhibition at the gallery. Harington is a Saskatoon-based painter known for her luscious and painterly style. She works in oils combining thick paint and fluid brush work with vibrant colour. Inspired by the natural world, Harington moves beyond the appearances of things to instead focus on the sensations and emotions associated with objects and places. Born on the Falkland Islands, Harington has lived in Zambia, Zimbabwe, South Africa, and England before she moved to Canada with her family in 1991. Her art education began in Saskatoon where she studied under several local artists before completing a Bachelor of Fine Arts at the University of Saskatchewan in 2004. Her work has been shown in group and solo shows in cities across the province, and is included in private collections in Canada, the United States, Britain, and South Africa, as well as the collection of the University of Saskatchewan.

 LORENZO DUPUIS: Strands
Reception: Saturday, December 7, 2PM - 5PM
December 7 - January 16
>> click here for more information
Art Placement is pleased to present this latest exhibition by Lorenzo Dupuis, showcasing his most recent work in egg tempera. For more than a decade, Dupuis has explored egg tempera, interpreting the ancient medium through a modernist lens and abstract aesthetic vocabulary. Bringing together a range of recent works, the title of the exhibition can be read in multiple ways. In one sense, the nature of the medium itself necessitates short, quick strokes, creating a surface of overlapping and interlacing hatch marks that reference threads and woven textiles. In another sense, strands also refers to the variety of stylistic approaches Dupuis has pursued, ranging from representational realism to subtle, all-over fields, and high contrast geometric abstractions. These diverse approaches, all ongoing simultaneously, are the strands that weave together to form the tapestry of his recent production.
