Appropriately titled Northern Landscapes, the exhibit takes place from Aug. 16-30 at the Black Spruce Gallery and features the work of five Canadian landscape painters — Greg Hargarten, Cam Forrester, Paul Trottier, Roger Trottier and Ken Van Rees — collectively known as the Men Who Paint.
“We plan three or four painting excursions every year and we’re based in Saskatoon, so a lot of our excursions are in Saskatchewan,” Hargarten said.
“We really try to paint in that northern boreal forest at least once a year. In the spring this year in fact, in March, we were at P.A. National Park painting and (at) Christopher Lake and Emma Lake, sitting in the snow out there.”
The artists themselves kick off the two-week exhibit on Friday, Aug. 16 with a special reception from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Guests will have the opportunity to meet each painter and discuss the works on display.
