Men Who Paint show August 9th – 1 to 4pm

The Men Who Paint

The five members of “Men Who Paint” all come from varied backgrounds but have their love of Saskatchewan landscape and painting as their common bond. Cam Forrester, Greg Hargarten, Ken Van Rees, Paul Trottier, Roger Trottier first met at the former Emma Lake Kenderdine Art Campus. Paul was the campus director as well as studying with many of the guest faculty and the balance of the members were attendees at the workshops.

Inspired by the work and adventurous spirit of the early Canadian painters the Men Who Paint began painting together in 2007. Their preference for painting outside brings a feeling of urgency and excitement to their landscapes. The combined artistic experience of the group offers a unique diversity and their collective dynamic thrives on each individual’s passion for finding expression through interpretation of not only their Saskatchewan home but landscapes across Canada.

The individuals have each been awarded several distinctions for their work throughout Western Canada and collectively have published a pictorial book “Halfway to Heaven”. The beautiful publication chronicles their art trek to Inuvik and the northern territories.

The Black Spruce Gallery is pleased to present a group show of “Men Who Paint” August 9 – 1 to 4 pm. The five members will be in attendance Sat August 9 from 1 to 4 pm.

If you are interested in attending our Aug 10 presentation by the Simairs, please contact the gallery at 306 229 1471.

Local residents and internationally acclaimed ceramic artists, Rod & Denyse Simair have represented Canada in major exhibitions in Europe and throughout North America. They are recipients of the highest international honour, awarded exclusively to Crystalline, le Gran Prix du Jury in France. Theirs is a true marriage of individual specialization, merging to create breathtaking crystalline porcelain sculptures.

Rod focuses exclusively on the wheel, masterfully throwing exquisite porcelain designs that combine a strength of form balanced with delicacy. The piece is then presented to Denyse, who, through years of research, experimentation and artistic interpretation, masterfully applies the glazes to create crystalline artistry.

It is rare that two artists are so intertwined and the result is award winning work collected throughout the world. Many of the sculptures you will see are years in the making with months of research, multiple prototypes and numerous firings.
