stories of the great southwest_ep1

This short feature examines the role of public and private art galleries and how they co-exist. Filmed during a ground breaking event hosted by 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 The Slate Fine Art Gallery of Regina, established only a few years ago.

This film introduces audiences to major artists, newly established artists, and emerging artists of Saskatchewan represented by these galleries. See fine artworks which are for sale and learn how to buy an artwork and why we should and also better appreciate the quality of fine artwork and professionalism offered by commercial galleries.
