The Art of Investing in Saskatchewan

Since 2008, SaskWorks’ Fund manager PFM Capital Inc. has independently commissioned and loaned artwork from various distinguished Saskatchewan artists to SaskWorks for its marketing campaign use.

The artists and artwork featured represent the talent and opportunity rising here in Saskatchewan. From the familiar prairie landscapes to the humble urban back alleys, these works of art are a reflection of the unique diversity this province has to offer. SaskWorks Venture Fund’s continued growth is a tribute to the economic opportunity and strength of this province and its people.

Wilf Perreault

Wilf Perreault

Painting a familiar landscape found within Saskatchewan’s cities, Wilf Perreault’s acrylic, oil and water-colour paintings lend a new understanding and beauty to the commonplace. He is in a class of artists known primarily for their attention to a single subject – in Perreault’s case, the humble urban back alley. Perreault was born in Albertville, SK and received his education at the University of Saskatchewan (BA Honours in Art, 1970). In 1998, he was chosen to represent Canada in Les Jeux de la Francophonie in Maroc, Africa – a juried exhibition of work by artists from 42 countries – where he was awarded the silver medal.

Gordon Lewis

Gordon Lewis

Born in Regina, Saskatchewan, Gordon Lewis studied art at the University of Regina under renowned Canadian artists Ted Godwin, Jack Cowin and Jack Sures. He graduated with a Bachelors degree in art and economics. After a 27-year career with Environment Canada, Gordon retired in 2002 and began painting full-time. Primarily a landscape painter, Gordon’s work reflects his prairie roots. He remarks, “Landscape inspires and informs the images I paint, which is natural considering my years spent working with Environment Canada and my continuing love of outdoor pursuits. The interaction between the ever-changing sky and the landscape of Saskatchewan’s vast area provide a constant source of fascination and inspiration for my paintings.”

Lindsey Love

Lindsey Love

Lindsey Love grew up in Bassano, Alberta, a small farming town, where her mother’s love of art inspired her to pursue painting. After earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts at the Alberta College of Art and Design, Lindsey moved to Rosthern, Saskatchewan to devote a summer exclusively to her art. There she met her husband, Chet; the couple eventually relocated to Saskatoon where they currently live with their son, James. Lindsey attributes her aesthetic to having grown up on the prairies, favouring subject matter that has minimal, spacious and peaceful qualities. Endlessly inspired by Saskatchewan landscapes, she strives to draw attention to the beauty and transcendence of the ordinary.
