Curated by Jesse Campbell
Still Life, 2008, oil on canvas, Private Collection
July 21st - September 5th, 2015
Felley-Martinson immigrated to Saskatchewan in 1963, having previously
trained in art colleges throughout England and enduring the difficult
years of World War Two. The prairies so shocked and challenged
that she could not paint for one decade after arriving in Prince Albert.
However, as she built her home and artistic circle, a distinct style
emerged. This exhibition shows the full spectrum of her practice,
bringing together paintings, drawings, works on paper, and sketches from
her personal archives, the Mann Art Gallery’s permanent collection, and
numerous private collections.
Felley-Martinson: A Retrospective
examines how one artist dealt with life on the prairies. Most
importantly, it shows that artwork can make us slow down, be still, and
embrace the beauty of our world.
Thursday July 23rd, 7:00 PM

organizational skills, and interpersonal abilities," said Annette
