On at the small gallery at Wanuskewin Heritage Park in Saskatoon is a show based on plein air painting by a group of Saskatoon artists who spent two days out at the Park last summer and fall. The show is on until the end of January, and on Saturday Jan 18 a special ‘show day’ will be held. If you can’t get out there that day, check with the regular hours on their site.

Autumn is definitely upon us. With our first snow of the season, we start to turn inwards.

This autumn, the Escape Artists have decided to take a hiatus for their usual ‘Art by the Hearth’ show. For various reasons, we decided that the time wasn’t right for this fall.

However, various members of the group will be participating in local shows during November, so you will have a chance to see some of their work at these events. Here is a list of dates and places for those shows:

‘Handmade for the Holidays’ at Framer’s Edge, 245 3rd Avenue South (5th Floor) Saskatoon .

This Saturday, the show is at Persephone Theatre, and next week, at Victoria School as part of the Broadway Street Fair. So come out on for some summer’s end art shows!

On Thursday, Bonnie and Lorraine drove up to Edmonton to put up our group show at the Muttart Conservatory. It was great fun to do a road trip like that. The show looks great in its location in the main hall. From the hall, people go to each of the four glass pyramids. Each pyramid houses a different environment with plants appropriate to that climate. It is a lovely place to visit.

Photos of the show in place are here on our flickr site (or click below). The show is on until August 13, so if you are passing through Edmonton, please stop by for a visit.

We are very pleased that we are the first to show in the Hilton Garden Inn Lounge in Saskatoon. The manager has decided that they are going to showcase local artists in the Lounge. Our group member, Jeannette Lussier will be the liaison between the hotel and artists/groups for future shows.

This space is well lit, both day and evening and will be a great opportunity for local artists to showcase their work to an ever changing group of people. Although the Garden Inn Lounge is open for service in the evenings, people are free to go into the Lounge to view the artworks at any time. Just walk through the Main Floor restaurant, The Great North American Grill, right by the reception desk.

The show is on now, until October 14, 2010. You can see photos by clicking on the flickr link to the right. We hope you drop by!

Our show at the Muttart Conservatory in Edmonton is just two weeks away! It is called ‘No Straight Edges’. Here is our poster that will be outside the show.

We hope that if you are in Edmonton over the summer, you will be able to stop by and see the show. It is there until August 13.
