May 6, 2013
Spring Exhibitions: On View March 22 – June 2, 2013
Jason Baerg: Returning <http://www.mendel.ca/2013/jason-baerg-returning>
This dynamic, multi-media exhibition features two recent works by Toronto-based Métis artist Jason Baerg. The Relations series of circular paintings explores cosmic themes, and reflects the artist’s interests in both abstraction and computer-generated elements. The laser-cut, shaped canvases in Nomadic Bounce draw upon personal narrative.
The Home Show <http://www.mendel.ca/2013/the-home-show>
What does it mean to curate? What does access to the permanent collection mean? How does personal taste and experience inform a selection process? Associate Curator Sandra Fraser asked Mendel Art Gallery staff members and others to choose from the gallery’s permanent collection works that spoke to them of “home.” The result is an eclectic and surprising show.
I Know You By Heart: Portrait Miniatures <http://www.mendel.ca/2013/i-know-you-by-heart>
Miniature portraits were commissioned from the late 18th to early 20th centuries, to preserve memories of loved ones in portable, private form. I Know You By Heart is an exhibition of exquisite miniatures from the collection of Library and Archives Canada. The subjects are primarily Canadian, including some well-known historical figures.
School Art <http://www.mendel.ca/2013/school-art>
(concluding May 26)
Showcasing paintings, drawings, photographs, sculptures and other art by more than 200 students from kindergarten to Grade 12, School Art has delighted gallery visitors for 41 years. This annual juried exhibition is organized in partnership with Saskatoon Public Schools and Greater Saskatoon Catholic Schools, and is sponsored by PotashCorp.
Bart Gazzola and Barbara Reimer: Green Man Portraits <http://www.mendel.ca/2013/bart-gazzola-and-barbara-reimer>
In 2010, Barbara Reimer received a Saskatchewan Arts Board grant to begin the Finding a Green Photo project. She travelled to Nicaragua to photograph landscapes, sites, and garbage. Reimer, developing images using a coffee-based solution, continues to examine the relationship of process versus content in photography. Her mentor is Bart Gazzola.
