Kent Tate and Sharon Olson: Uncommon Landscapes
March 1 to April 15, 2017 
 
Kent Tate and Sharon Olson approach landscape using non-traditional methods. In this exhibition, five abstract paintings accompany three television monitors. Olson’s textural, meandering paintings are developed using google map images as inspiration, while Tate’s films feature time lapse landscape (including images from Saskatchewan’s Grasslands National Park), animals and a serene soundtrack made by remixing NASA satellite recordings.

"I have always felt the need to have a quiet place near to where I live so I could just spend time sitting and day dreaming. One area for me was the Ravenscrag Formation just west of Eastend, Saskatchewan." - Kent Tate
 
This exhibition provides an atmospheric meditation on landscape. Calm, reverential and engrossing; the viewer is invited to ponder the manner in which we perceive our surroundings and become immersed within the landscapes presented by these artists.
 
Organized and toured through OSAC’s Arts on the Move program
