Art Gallery of Swift Current


Art for Sale

March 3 - April 22, 2018

This exhibition features artists represented by the Gallery / art placement of Saskatoon and Slate Fine Art Gallery of Regina.

Commercial galleries and artwork sales are important to sustaining the arts ecology in our time. Commercial galleries serve the public by providing access to artwork for private ownership and use in a home or business space. A commercial gallery serves the artist by presenting their artwork publicly. They nurture an audience and buyers for the artist’s work, helping to sustain an artist’s practice and building credibility for their art expression.

In the public Art Gallery of Swift Current exhibition titled “Art for Sale”, we examine two major Saskatchewan commercial galleries including the Gallery / art placement of Saskatoon – now celebrating its 40th year of service – and Slate Fine Art Gallery of Regina, established only few years ago. This exhibition will introduce us to the major artists, newly established artists, and emerging artists of Saskatchewan represented by these galleries. See fine artworks which are for sale. Learn how to buy an artwork and why we should. And also learn to better appreciate the quality of fine artwork and the professionalism offered by commercial galleries.

Public Reception 7 p.m. and Art Talk 7:30 p.m. on Friday March 16

Commercial Gallery Owners and Artists will be speaking.
