About the exhibition
The Snelgrove Salon is the exhibition portion of a larger research creation project with the aim of implementing a sustainable practice for the continued preservation, maintenance, and growth of the University of Saskatchewan’s Art and Art History Collection. This past summer, the Art and Art History Collection began its shift to a digital platform through the Gordon Snelgrove’s online database. An ongoing project, The Snelgrove Salon: Part I is the first iteration of a multi-part, salon-style exhibition, documentation, and oral history project that celebrates the collection as it transitions to its new digital form.

More information is available on the USask Art Galleries and Collection website.
