Thank you to everyone who came out and made our recent show such an enjoyable success. We had reasonable weather, mulled cider, lots of good art work, many visitors, and a good time. We wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year – 2011!


Our second annual ‘Art by the Hearth’ will be held December 4 and 5 this year.

The show will be from 11 am to 5pm on December 4, and from noon to 4:30 pm on December 5.

At our show there will be a wide variety of art works, including paintings, sculpture, reproductions, cards and calendars.

The show will be held again at 1125 13th Street East. We hope you can come and enjoy the show!

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.

2010 will see the Escape Artists having their first group show outside the province. From June 25 to August 13, the Escape Artists will have a show at the Muttart Conservatory in Edmonton. The show will be displayed in the newly renovated foyer of the Conservatory. We hope that if you are travelling through Edmonton this summer, that you will stop in and see the show. Once the show is up, we will have photos on our flickr page for you to see.

Above is a shot of the before show chaos.

Thank you to the many people who came by our fall show this past weekend. On our opening night, we had about 100 people stop by to enjoy the art, the music, and the atmosphere. A good time was had by all! Thanks to all who made it happen.

You can see photos from the show by clicking on the flickr link on the lower left side of this page. That will take you to our flickr photo site.

Sunday afternoon was also well attended, in spite of the fact that the Roughriders’ game was on that afternoon. And they won!

Our next artistic venture that is on the calendar will be the show at the Muttart Conservatory in June 2010. We will keep you updated on any other activities as well.
