Douglas Bentham: The Tablets

Opening reception: Friday, Oct. 20, 7:0010:00 pm
Gordon Snelgrove Gallery, Murray Building

With an international reputation spanning more than four decades, Saskatoon-based sculptor Douglas Bentham’s (BA'68, MFA'89)newest exhibition The Tablets is the artist’s first “installation” piece. Comprised of 27 sculptural works installed in symmetrical rows, The Tablets exhibition presents a collection of metal assemblages of richly textured bronze and brass panels infused with fractured text, numbers and dates. The presentation of these tablet-like constructions contributes to a layered, overarching narrative of time, history, mortality and the general fragility of the human condition.

Organized by Art Gallery of Swift Current and the Moose Jaw Museum and Art Gallery

Curated by Kim Houghtaling, AGSC and Jennifer McRorie, MJM&AG
