I’m honoured and excited to be part of this upcoming exhibition at SLATE Gallery in Regina, Saskatchewan. I send a huge thank you to gallery owners Kimberley Fyfe and Gina Fafard for this opportunity. Following is what they’ve written about my work.
Vera Saltzman unpacks the ideas of home, space and memory in her body of carefully produced work. Featuring subjects that often do not garner a second look Saltzman uses location as a canvas and constructs images that employ memory to great effect. The centrality of her subjects such as fishing shacks and small town homes emphasizes the necessity of home in all forms and forces the viewer to reevaluate the existence of these spaces in our world.
Nine limited edition images are included in the show. If you are in Regina, it would be wonderful if you stopped by this beautiful gallery for a visit. It’s a happy coincidence that SLATE Gallery is on Halifax Street in Regina, and for years I called the city of Halifax “Home.”
