The University Archives and Special Collections holds the archival materials of many distinguished and talented artists. Their correspondence, publications, art catalogues, research, and their documents relating to committees or organizations they contributed to can be found in these archives. But also, sometimes they donate their art as well.
Art that they choose to donate or was donated by others can be a valuable research tool and can tell us a lot about the artist's evolution in skill and style, or about the history of art in general. But art can also document the history of the objects and places it depicts.
In this exhibit the curator chose art from within the archives' holdings which reflects the city of Saskatoon, as the artists saw it. Through the lens of time and style, visiters to this exhibit can see Saskatoon through the artist's eyes.
Reflections of landscape and cityscape feature predominantly, though anonymous residents of Saskatoon do make appearances.
Here is a list of the artists included in this exhibit. If you click on their names you will be taken to their archival entry in our database or to a digital project which features them and their work. There you can learn more about the artist and the materials we have in our holdings.
