RESET

March 15 – April 30, 2021 at 330g Projects, Saskatoon

Exhibition celebrates painting across generations

Reset, an exhibition of ten emerging and established painters from four Western provinces, will be on view at 330g Projects from March 15 to April 30, 2021. It is an invitation to explore what is happening in artist studios in Saskatoon and across the West. The exhibition celebrates the importance of painting today and why it continues to flourish, despite harsh times.

The ten Reset painters include: Brody Burns (Sask), Robert Christie (Sask), Tod Emel (BC), Colleen Heslin (BC), Stephanie Krawchuk (Sask), Laura Payne (Sask), Ben Reeves (BC), Jesse Stilwell (Alta), Dave Stonhouse (Sask), and Wanda Koop (Man).

Established artists such as Wanda Koop—internationally renowned and one of Canada’s most accomplished painters—are presented here with young artists who are beginning professional careers. The exhibition highlights the connection between generations and genres in an installation that encourages conversation and debate. From prize-winning, innovative textile-based work (Heslin) to dreamlike landscapes at twilight (Reeves), from striking optical patterning (Payne and Stilwell) to 3-dimensional abstractions that redefine space (Christie and Stonhouse), Reset assures us that painting remains a potent force on the cultural scene.
