  • The GALLERY / art placement 238 3 Avenue South Saskatoon, SK, S7K 1L9 Canada (map)

Reception: To Be Announced
June 23 - August 2

Figurative art abounds throughout the art historical record, remaining central within the Western canon until at least the beginning of the twentieth century. Even today there are numerous artists working with the human form. In Saskatoon, a city with an artistic legacy largely defined by other genres and movements, a small but vital community of painters nevertheless continues to nurture the figurative tradition. Their work converses with historical precedents, contemporary developments, and the particular conditions and histories of the local context. The result is a unique snapshot of an enduring yet continuously evolving tradition.
