Opening Reception: Saturday, September 19th, 2-4 pm
Exhibition continues through October 2nd


Following a successful public retrospective exhibition In the Alley at the MacKenzie Art Gallery where it was extended by popular demand, celebrated Regina-based painter Wilf Perreault presents a series of new paintings in Light to Dark at the DUG. Known for his representations of the ubiquitous back alley, this new series of paintings further explores themes of home and the everyday. Perreault explores different atmospheric light qualities of dusk and dawn in various perspectives resulting in moody, quiet suburban scenes that evoke solitude and quiet contemplation.

In the Alley is now currently on view at the Art Gallery of Grande Prairie until November 1st, 2015.

About the Artist:

Wilf Perreault was born in Albertville, Saskatchewan in 1947. He received his education at the University of Saskatchewan (BA Honours in Art 1970), and has gone on to become one of Saskatchewan's most highly regarded visual artists. Painting the familiar landscape in and around the city of Regina where he has lived and worked since 1970, his acrylic, oil and watercolour paintings lend a new understanding and beauty to the commonplace. His work has earned him a large and growing number of exhibitions, commissions and awards in and outside of Saskatchewan. In 1989 he was chosen to represent Canada and was awarded a Silver Medal in Les Jeux de la Francophonie in Maroc, Africa - a juried exhibition of work by artists from 42 countries.

Wilf Perreault's paintings are in the collections of: Mackenzie Art Gallery, Regina; Pemberton Houston, Willoughby; Bank of Montreal; The Mercantile Bank; Goldman Sachs and Co., New York; Osler Hoskins, Toronto; Ernst & Young; Touche Ross & Co.; Canada Council Art Bank, Ottawa; Saskatchewan Arts Board; Petro-Canada Inc.; Potash Corporation of Saskatchewan; Dunlop Art Gallery, Regina; Mendel Art Gallery, Saskatoon; and the Edmonton Art Gallery, Alberta.
