 MARTIN BENNETT: When I Can No Longer Play For Time: Shift/Turn/Shuffle/1992-2019
Reception: Thursday, July 4, 5-7PM
July 4 - August 8
>> click here for more information
Art Placement is pleased to present “When I Can No Longer Play For Time: Shift/Turn/Shuffle/1992-2019”, Martin Bennett’s debut solo exhibition at the gallery. Bennett studied painting at the Alberta College of Art and Design in the late 1980s and early 1990s, establishing himself as a prominent artist in the Calgary scene. He has resided in Saskatoon for the last 12 years, though he divides much of his studio time between Canada and England. Art Placement is delighted to present this mid-career survey of Bennett’s work, highlighting major series drawn from several decades of his production as well as a selection of new paintings; mature works that are visually striking and introspective, expanding thematically, aesthetically, and conceptually upon the numerous threads woven throughout his past work.

Reception: Saturday, December 1, 2PM
December 1 - January 10
>> click here for more information
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.



 LOUISE COOK - A Painted Diary, Works 1985-2018
Reception: Saturday, October 20, 2PM
October 20 - November 29
>> click here for more information
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.
