Art Trek, now in its third year is featuring nine artist studios and collectives, and will take place on June 13th and 14th!

You are invited to visit The Studio on 20th, a light-filled working and exhibition space for ten Saskatoon painters. Stall Gallery Basement Studio C is the working studio of the co-owners of the Stall Gallery on 20th Street and two doors away, the MIX Artists’ Collective has found a temporary exhibition space at Green Ark Collected Home on 20th. The 330 Design Group is a collective of sculptors located up the street in a delightful grotto of a former church basement. A short distance away in the Exhibition area, Atelier 2302 offers classes and workshops to the public and specializes in classical drawing and painting techniques. Just off Broadway, exciting works can be expected from the Artists’ Workshop at the Grace-Westminster Church and the Textile Arts Group (TAG), a collective of fibre artists, is located in the Church’s basement. Closer to the city core, Studio 5 can be found on the fifth floor of the Charter House building and features the work of painters, printmakers and a fabric artist. Finally, Lauriston Street Studios is a collective of artists who paint, sculpt and create glass art in the beautiful City Park area.

This is going to be THE weekend in Saskatoon for art lovers and city explorers! Take the studio tour at your own pace to discover some of Saskatoon’s finest artists, watch them at work in their spaces, talk to them about their art-making processes and experience a wide variety of demonstrations.

With spring, new shows

Today is the first day of spring, which of course brought snow to us. I have been painting away, getting ready for our annual spring show.  Here is the information:


Now it is just over 3 weeks away. I plan to have pretty well all new pieces for the show, so it will be a busy time the next few weeks. I am starting to put up the new pieces in the Gallery of New Works, so keep checking to see what is new. 

There is some news as well. Our Artists' Workshop group has been invited to participate in Saskatoon's first Art Trek, a Studio Discovery Tour of five local practicing art groups. You can follow the development of this undertaking on our Facebook page, Art Trek. Art Trek will take place Friday June 8, from 5 - 10 pm, and Saturday June 9 from 10 am - 5 pm. The five groups taking part for this inagural tour are Saint George Studio, 330 Design Group, MIX Artists' Collective, Artists' Workshop, and The Men Who Paint. There will be over 40 artists demonstrating their practice and works. 

So it looks like an 'artful' spring coming up! I hope you can come by and take part in the various activities.
