Art Talk on Friday March 16th – Reception 7 to 10 p.m. – Talk at 7:30 p.m.
Commercial Gallery Owners and Artists will be speaking.
Admission is Free.
This exhibition features artists represented by The Gallery / Art Placement of Saskatoon and The Slate Fine Art Gallery of Regina.
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.
In the public Art Gallery of Swift Current exhibition titled “Art for Sale”, we examine two major Saskatchewan commercial galleries including The Gallery / Art Placement of Saskatoon – now celebrating its 40th year of service – and The 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 and learn how to buy an artwork and why we should and also better appreciate the quality of fine artwork and professionalism offered by commercial galleries.
Please note the Gallery will be closed Wednesday afternoons due to the Minds in Motion program, from February 7 to March 28, 2018.
