Martin Bennett: When I Can No Longer Play For Time: Shift/Turn/Shuffle/1992-2019

  • The Gallery / art placement inc. (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Reception: Thursday, July 4, 5-7PM

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.

"I've only ever been a photocopy machine." - Martin Bennett

Martin Bennett is a contemporary artist who works primarily in painting, which he pursues from a philosophical perspective. Over the course of more than 30 years he has developed a significant body of work that contemplates various potential frictions within painting, art-making, and the history of representation. Employing a variety of strategies and techniques including photography, photocopying, drawing, painting, and sanding, his work teeters between seemingly opposite concepts, practices, and forms: photography and painting; images and objects; figuration and abstraction; material and picture; personal and impersonal; originality and banality; home and away; mechanical mediation and the handmade; and the universal and the vernacular. Born in 1970 in Winchester, England, Bennett immigrated to Canada in 1975. He has exhibited his work throughout Canada and abroad since the early 1990s, including solo and group exhibitions in Saskatoon, Calgary, Medicine Hat, Winnipeg, Vancouver, Toronto, Los Angeles, Zurich, and London, UK.

Reception and Artist Talk with Michael Flaherty: Saturday, July 13, 2 – 5 pm

Saskatchewan Craft Council is pleased to present Other Artifacts — an exhibition of fine craft from Newfoundland artists Michael Flaherty, Susan Furneaux, and Philippa Jones.

In this exhibition, Flaherty, Furneaux, and Jones create mythical worlds with fine craft techniques and materials.

Furneaux tells stories with hand-made dolls, inspired by natural history, folklore, and the Newfoundland landscape using natural dye and historic stitching techniques.

Flaherty, working primarily in ceramics, integrates geometric historical ceramic decoration with the functional element of bicycle tires. Like craft, bicycling is, for Flaherty, “rooted in self-sufficiency, ethical awareness, and resistance to the mainstream.”

As a multi-media fine craft artist, Jones’ diverse art practice combines printmaking, interactive installations, and pen and ink. Central to Jones’ work is the exploration of constructed realities and active myth making, seeking to celebrate inquisitiveness and imagination.

JONATHAN FORREST: Material Resonance

  • The Gallery / art placement inc. (map)

Reception: Saturday, May 25, 2PM

Art Placement is pleased to present Jonathan Forrest’s latest exhibition, Material Resonance. The diverse yet cohesive selection of works in this exhibition are the latest creations of an artist whose practice is defined by both an intense focus, clarity, and concentration, as well as a wandering inquisitiveness.

Active since the mid 1980s, Forrest's approach to abstraction over the past three decades charts a steady yet meandering evolution. Uncomfortable settling into one series or stylistic pigeonhole for too long, he regularly adjusts his course, shifting towards new lines of inquiry. In sequence, a logical, incremental progression comes into focus, a path of one thing leading to another, with the occasional leap for good measure.

Saskatchewan Craft Council is pleased to present Dimensions 2019! This year, 219 works were submitted for jurying by 135 artists, including 40 emerging artists. Jurors Felicia Gay and Kye-Yeon Son chose 35 pieces for the exhibition. 
 
Dimensions is a biennial, juried, touring exhibition of contemporary craft organized by the Saskatchewan Craft Council for over 40 years. It is one of the few juried exhibitions where the jurors can select from the physical pieces, rather than photographs of the works, which allows for a nuanced and considerate selection. Dimensions encourages Saskatchewan artists to push themselves creatively and technically. Selected works are unique, incorporating individual expression that transcend technique; works have content as well as achieving technical and creative excellence.

Dimensions offers $12,500 worth of awards this year. Join us at the Awards Gala on Friday, May 31st at the Broadway Theatre as we celebrate Saskatchewan contemporary craft! A Public Reception follows at the Saskatchewan Craft Council Gallery, where you can view the entire exhibition in person. Get tickets.

Cline and Marshall have maintained an ongoing dialogue within Regina's art community for many years, but this is their first collaborative project and exhibition. Featuring a total of 14 paintings, one from each artist for every day of the week, the works are based on photographs taken by Cline and Marshall on the same day at the exact same time, in two very different geographic locations: Tuscany and the interior of British Columbia. The structure of the project bridges Cline's interests in geography, narrative, and the history of travel painting, with Marshall's ongoing investigations into time-based documentation.

  • The Gallery / art placement inc (map)

Reception: Saturday, February 23, 2PM

Art Placement presents 'formalish', an exhibition featuring the work of three emerging, Saskatoon-based abstract painters: Jordan Danchilla, Steph Krawchuk, and Cameron McKay.

Formalism is one of the key terms defining the history of abstraction in Saskatoon. The artists in formalish carry on the local formalist tradition to some extent, while at the same time demonstrating a uniquely contemporary approach to the problem of abstraction. Their work speaks to a diverse range of influences, materials, aesthetics, value systems, and histories, in abstract paintings that are fresh, personal, engaging, and unexpected. Danchilla, Krawchuk, and McKay make their work in relative isolation, but within a global community that is more connected and easily accessible than ever before via technology. They acknowledge abstraction's histories--locally as well as internationally--though their relationships to those histories remain adjacent rather than continuous; casual as opposed to strictly formal. Without staking a conceptual or ideological position in relation to the past, as artists a generation before might have felt was necessary, they instead opt for more lighthearted approaches. With genuine curiosity and playful fascination, their work is refreshing and optimistic, and consistently unburdened by the weight or confines of history.

Bark by Brian Gladwell | Free Ranging by Zane Wilcox

Opening Reception: Thursday, January 24, 5:00 - 8:00 p.m.

Bark presents Brian Gladwell's new approach to his medium of wood. Highly refined surfaces combined with rough exteriors add a new dimension to Gladwell's functional sculpture. The contrast of textures as well as treatment shows the dichotomy through which we often experience the natural world.

Zane Wilcox's development of texture and scale in his stoneware sculpture allows for a creative use of light on the surface. Further enhanced by a clever application of reflective gold and strong colours the surface becomes integral to the experience of his vessels bringing a vibrational quality that would not otherwise exist.

  • Saskatchewan Craft Council (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Reception and Artist Talk: Friday, January 18, 7:00 p.m. until 9:00 p.m. Artist talk begins at 7:30 p.m.

Saskatchewan Craft Council is pleased to present Connections — an exhibition of works from Saskatchewan and South Korean artists. This show was in part organized by the Print Art Research Centre (PARC) in Seoul, Korea.

The exhibition came to fruition due to two chance happenings. In 2014, Saskatoon-based artist Monique Martin created a print at Zea Mays Printmaking in Florence, Massachusetts. The print was then curated into an exhibition at the Seoul Museum of Art in South Korea.

While her print was on display, Martin was preparing to go to Korea for the International Design Conference to present one of her pieces to the Mayor of Suncheon City. On that trip, Martin discovered PARC and became friends with several Korean printmakers.
 
Thanks to these friendships, Martin had an exhibition of her work at PARC in the spring of 2017. While on that trip that she proposed the idea for Connections, a joint printmaking exhibition at the Saskatchewan Craft Council Gallery in Saskatoon.

To help her coordinate Connections, Martin called on Michael Peterson, Director of Saskatoon printmaking studio Void Gallery. Peterson sought out work by Saskatoon printmakers he had worked with at Void and contacted artists through the printmaking studio Articulate Ink in Regina.
 
Artists in this exhibition use historical and contemporary printing processes to create their original pieces. While today a "print" can simply mean a "copy" or "reproduction," printmaking is a tradition dominated by meticulous attention using hand and eye to produce consistency in works of high skill and varying content. Works created through silkscreen, mezzotint, etching and chine-collé, linocut, lithography, waterless lithography, and other techniques will be displayed.
 
Martin is sure the story of Connections will continue. She will be documenting this exhibition and hopes to have it tour to other venues in Canada before going back to Korea for an exhibition there.

Clint Hunker: About a Lake

  • The Gallery / art placement inc (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Reception: Saturday, December 1, 2PM

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.

In this latest series of paintings, Hunker has focused his attention on lakes of the grasslands and prairie regions of the province, a subject often neglected, as he notes:

"Knowing a place is key to my working process for the present. In the past prairie lakes have been looked down upon as weedy or alkali, glorified sloughs, to be blocked, dammed, or shored up to contain precious water. They have none of the romance of northern lakes with their clear water and rocky shorelines. Watching a boulder bare itself as water recedes from May to October, boats and storms all have a beauty and poetry that demonstrates the rhythm of the seasons.
