YORKTON - Now display until May 23, 2022 at the Community pARTners Gallery located in the Yorkton Public Library is Edie Marshall: Moving Landscapes. 

The show is touring through OSAC’s Arts on the Move program. 

Marshall is an established Saskatchewan landscape painter of sensitivity and skill, notes an OSAC release.  

“Over her career she has explored different ways to interpret landscape, movement, and the passage of time. It is immediately apparent in her paintings that Marshall is not a tourist on the prairies, but someone who has a long term, intimate relationship to this place. Her particular talent lies in her ability to evoke multi-sensory experiences for the viewer, allowing them to be fully immersed in the landscapes of our prairie home,” it states. 

Marshall’s paintings beautifully capture the experience of time; like in a time-lapse photograph, one can trace the movement of plants, grasses, trees, and creatures, as they sway and travel through the picture plane.  

“The organic textures of the under paintings, and her graceful use of gesture, bring life and energy to the works. Her technique relies on “plein air” sketching, making multiple drawings from many perspectives in a setting. These bits and pieces are then stitched together by way of paintings, into a cohesive whole. The result is a well-organized kaleidoscope of a singular landscape. These works are not snapshots taken in passing and then faithfully rendered (though, she has utilized this process in earlier works), but a series of moments eloquently strung together into a narrative in which she recalls her travels for the viewer,” states an exhibition essay titled Landscape in Motion by Madeleine Greenway, in the release. 

Marshall is a Saskatchewan painter who is interested in the environment, the history and culture of the land. Most of her work is about the prairies where she finds an unlimited and often overlooked source of colours and shapes, ideas and images. Marshall paints large energetic canvases and small intimate ones as a way to describe the vastness and energy of the land with its diverse and unique ecosystems.  

Marshall received her Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Saskatchewan in 2004 with Great Distinction. She has work in public collections at the University of Saskatchewan and St. Thomas More Gallery in Saskatoon. Her work has been exhibited internationally and can be found in private collections in Canada, the United States, Mexico, Europe and Australia. 

Marshall worked as the Program Coordinator at the Art Gallery of Regina and at CARFAC SASK. She is an advocate for visual arts and artists and has served on the CARFAC Saskatchewan and National Boards, the board of directors for the Art Gallery of Regina and the Saskatchewan Arts Board. She taught painting at the Neil Balkwill Civic Art Centre for three years and continues to teach workshops in Regina and Moose Jaw.  

Marshall currently lives in Riverhurst, Saskatchewan where she has her studio practice.
