 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.

 KELLY GOERZEN - Familiar and Unfamiliar
Reception: Saturday, November 4, 2:00pm
November 4 to November 30
>> click here for images
Art Placement is delighted to present the latest solo exhibition by Saskatoon artist Kelly Goerzen, whose painterly realism has been beloved by collectors near and far for decades. Initially working exclusively in watercolour, Goerzen now paints primarily in acrylic with an impressionistic style that maintains the looseness and vitality of her earlier work in watercolour. In addition to natural landscapes, she has also become well known for her paintings of Saskatoon’s urban environment, presenting narrative vignettes of life in the city with brilliant colour, nearly photographic realism, and unconventional compositions.

October 18 to October 28

Concurrent with the presentation of Douglas Bentham's installation, "The Tablets", at the Gordon Snelgrove Gallery on the University of Saskatchewan campus, Art Placement is pleased to present four new sculptural works from a developing series. Densely arranged fragments of recycled brass are woven together in these latest compositions with Bentham's characteristic elegance and aesthetic balance. The found components present a menagerie of plant and animal forms, swirling within their newly constructed, self-contained ecosystems.
