Prairie Portraits

Prairie Portraits, an exhibition featuring the work of Joe Fafard, Karen Holden and Vera Saltzman

This exhibition presents one of the oldest and most contested genres in the art world, the Portrait.

While each artist creates in a different media (bronze, oil and photography) they all have approached their subject with the desire to explore the spirit of humanity.

The resulting artwork reflects our sense of "self" in relation to the world as a whole while remarking on the potency of and the possibilities for each human life.

Opening Reception: Thursday, September 12, 5-8 PM

Joe Fafard,  Louis Jobin , 2015, patinated bronze, edition 2 of 5, 27 1/2 x 9 x 7”

Reception and Artist Talk, Friday, September 13 from 7 to 9 pm

Saskatchewan Craft Council is pleased to present Aggregate — an exhibition of ceramic sculpture by New Brunswick artist Darren Emenau.

Emenau’s ceramics reflect the natural and industrial landscapes of New Brunswick. By experimenting with clay and glaze in unconventional ways, Emenau creates forms which simultaneously convey a contemporary and ageless feel. 

Emenau refers to himself as a ‘serial tinkerer,’ experimenting for 20 years with techniques and finishes. Using imported materials and local materials (such as locally dug clay, potash, silica, shale, and granite) in his process, Emenau’s works are remarkable for their saturated colour and lush textural surfaces.

Unpredictability matched with a technical and thoughtful process of making has led to numerous international awards. This is a ceramic exhibition not to be missed.

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.

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.

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.

Dimensions 2019

  • Saskatchewan Craft Council (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

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.
