Landscape painter Paul Constable spends much of his summers painting on location in northern Saskatchewan. His oil paintings diarize seasonal changes and influences on the prairies as he searches the underlying forms that delineate the prairie landscape.
Rolf Krohnís wide array of landscape paintings depict dramatic scenes from North of 60, where summer days and dramatic skies descend into muskeg lakes. As well, his work conveys the subtle beauty and fragility of the grasslands in the south of the province.
James Korpanís metal sculptures are well known and treasured by collectors from all over. Built from reclaimed implements that once worked the land, he repurposes the iron into fine representations of horses, raptors as well as rarely seen new figurative works.
Guest Silk Artisan and Painter, Bonny Macnabís roots are centered in the landscape she loves to paint. Living and working from her country log home /studio, she produces hand dyed silk panels and scarves that embrace her customers with scenes of Saskatchewan.
