Regina Gallery Impresses in Toronto and Montreal

Updated: Jan 21, 2019

Slate Fine Art Gallery in Regina enjoyed a successful business trip to Toronto and Montreal recently, made possible by a Market and Export Development Grant.

In Montréal, Slate enjoyed its first appearance at Papier Art Fair, and in Toronto, it was a fourth appearance at Art Toronto. Both ventures delivered sales success, developed professional connections and deepened the gallery's profile on a national level.

Papier Art Fair in Montréal has a unique focus on artwork created on or from paper. Slate's participation resulted in strong sales for Saskatchewan artists Vera Saltzman and Gabriela Garcia-Luna who both work in the medium of photography. The gallery's presence at the art fair opened up a new market for these artists.

After missing a 2017 appearance at Art Toronto, Slate found its return this year to be well received, with many visitors and artists remarking on its absence the previous year. Artists who were presented at Art Toronto for the first time all saw successful sales (Gabriela Garcia-Luna, photographic work; Peter Tucker, painting; Katherine Boyer, beadwork and soft sculpture) and artwork from two Saskatchewan artists entered the collection of the University of Guelph.
