 CAMERON FORBES and SANDRA LEDINGHAM - Shifting Glance
Reception: Thursday, September 7, 7:00pm
September 7 to October 5
>> click here for images
Art Placement is pleased to present the work of Cameron Forbes and Sandra Ledingham in a two-person exhibition that explores the connections and relationships between their distinct practices. Initially, Forbes and Ledingham were brought together on a very basic level: as studio mates in a shared space located along the northern fringe of downtown Saskatoon. As often happens, proximity initiated a dialogue through which shared sensibilities and common themes emerged.

>> 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.

Art Placement is pleased to present Rodney Konopaki and Rhonda Neufeld’s latest site-specific exhibition at the gallery. Inspired by urban and natural landscapes in and around the city of Saskatoon, the duo’s latest works expand upon their ongoing explorations into place. In works that bridge visual representation and physical experience, the artists propose multiple and unexpected strategies for visually recording time, space, and geography. Currently based in British Columbia, but with various prairie connections, Konopaki and Neufeld undertook a self-directed residency in Saskatoon in the summer of 2016, collecting the raw materials that would inform their studio explorations.

 STEPH KRAWCHUK
Reception: Saturday, April 22nd, 2:00pm
April 22nd to May 18th
>> click here for images
Just in time for spring, Art Placement is pleased to feature bright and colorful abstract works by Steph Krawchuk. Well known for her stylized cityscapes, portraits, and still-life paintings, Krawchuk’s recent turn towards all-out abstraction is a bit of a departure. Though her work has always played with the fundamental elements of line, shape, and colour, these recent works are now liberated from any recognizable subject matter or representational constraint. Despite the lack of identifiable subjects, Krawchuk does continue to draw inspiration from her immediate environment, distilling her impressions into abstract compositions, rather than literal translations. Working and re-working each canvas in the studio, Krawchuk’s paint accumulates in luscious, textural surfaces, with clean, precise colour. Defying any strict stylistic lineage, her paintings are consistently fresh and unexpected.

 

 

 Fine Arts Faculty from the University of Saskatchewan
Reception: Saturday, March 25th, 2:00pm
March 25th to April 20th
>> click here for images
Art Placement is pleased to host an exhibition highlighting the work of the Faculty in the Department of Art and Art History at the University of Saskatchewan. Faculty in the Art Department have been influential in Saskatoon’s artistic community since art classes were first offered on campus. To this day, they remain a critical nexus around which much of the city’s artistic identity revolves and evolves, inspiring the next generation of artists, while connecting and collaborating with colleagues across the country and around the world. As this exhibition highlights, the current Faculty make work that is diverse in media as well as approach; they cross disciplinary boundaries with ease, and incorporate new technologies into work in both traditional and emergent media. Individually, they have exhibited nationally and internationally, and their works have been collected by prestigious institutions across Canada. It is a special treat for us to present their works together for the first time since 2010. Featuring new and recent work by Jennifer Crane, Graham Fowler, Allyson Glenn, John Graham, Mary Longman, Alison Norlen, Tim Nowlin, and Susan Shantz.

 

 

 Prairie Abstraction, Modern & Contemporary
Reception: Saturday, February 25th, 2:00pm
February 25th to March 23rd
>> click here for images
Art Placement presents its latest survey of modern and contemporary prairie abstraction, offering one glimpse of the past, present, and future of abstract art in Saskatchewan. Fresh works from established practitioners rub shoulders with the latest offerings from a select pool of emerging talents. As we might expect, aesthetics and intentions are varied, though common ground inevitably emerges.

 

 

 Reta Cowley, Clint Hunker, Lorna Russell
Reception: Saturday, February 4th, 2:00pm
January 28th to February 23rd
>> click here for images
Art Placement is pleased to present an exhibition featuring the work of three beloved landscape painters from Saskatoon: Reta Cowley (1910-2004), Clint Hunker, and Lorna Russell. These artists are well known for their unique approaches to landscape painting; however, shared sensibilities also illuminate a dialogue between each of their distinct styles. In addition to their artistic accomplishments, Cowley, Hunker and Russell have also been influential as educators, and their paintings speak to a studied understanding of the Picturesque and Modern traditions of European art. With technical virtuosity and masterful use of colour, echoes of Cézanne and Monet abound. Yet, these three artists are also products of their prairie environment, favouring particular locations, which they have revisited year after year and throughout the seasons. Reveling in the nuance of seasonal changes and capricious weather conditions, each artist blends observation and sentiment in paintings that are intimate and personal.
