This exhibition is organized and toured through OSAC’s Arts on the Move program with the help of the staff of the Saskatchewan Arts Board’s Permanent Collection, and is curated by Zoë Schneider, Visual & Media Arts Coordinator, OSAC.

In an exciting new partnership OSAC’s Arts on the Move program is pleased to present a touring exhibition from the Permanent Collection of the Saskatchewan Arts Board. Curated by OSAC’s Visual & Media Arts Coordinator Zoë Schneider, this exhibition examines the role botany, flora, and gardening play in the work of an artist. Featuring works by Lorne Beug, Donna Kriekle, Russel Yuristy, Richard Holden, Stan Day, Jefferson Little, Phyllis Godwin, George Glenn, June Jacobs, Agnes Gallus, and Brenda Francis Pelkey, this exhibition presents a diverse selection of media including photography, drawing, painting, and fibre. We will examine the correlations found between gardeners and artists- attention to colour, perspective, composition and material, dedication of time, planning and patience.
