About the Artists:

Monique Martin is a multi-disciplinary artist from Saskatoon, Canada. She has exhibited her artwork in more than 242 significant solos, invited and juried group exhibitions in ten countries. More than 50 of these were solo exhibitions in public galleries. Renowned international curators have selected her artwork for various exhibitions worldwide. Her works are held in more than forty-four public and private collections in ten different countries.

Her work often uses significant symbols or comments on contemporary social issues. Monique creates bodies of work rather than individual pieces and focuses on specific concepts, she undertakes extensive research prior to creating her work, often incorporating historically significant symbols and images to express her ideas. Her works push the boundaries of standard printmaking: enormous scale printmaking, installation-based printmaking and working with three dimensions in printmaking.

Monique was Artist-in-Residence for Disneyland Paris, Paris, France (2013), the Shakespeare on the Saskatchewan Festival (2013), the Saskatchewan Children’s Festival (2012), Bytown Museum, Ottawa, Canada (2010), Spalding, United Kingdom (2008), Nice, France (2006), Vallauris, France (2006), Mount Vernon, USA (2004), Wynyard, Tasmania, Australia (2003) and Coaticook, QC, Canada (2001).

 

Cheryl Andrist and Marilynn Malo are the joint winners of the Estevan Arts Council’s 2019 Evelyn Johnson Memorial Adjudicated Exhibition.  They submitted separate works and collaborated on one piece for their exhibition, Fabricated Nature.

Cheryl Andrist is a Saskatchewan artist, based out of Estevan, SK. She received her BFA in 2004 from the University of Regina, where she majored in printmaking. She has exhibited at the Fifth Parallel Gallery and her artwork was included in an OSAC touring exhibition. She was the 2004 winner of the BMO 1st Art Competition and in 2009 won the proposal from the City of Estevan to install a public sculpture.

Marilynn Malo is a Saskatchewan artist, based out of Wolseley, SK. She has exhibited in several shows across the province and has a piece of artwork in the Saskatchewan Arts Board permanent collection. She served as a board member on the Saskatchewan Arts Board for several years. She was also the owner of Malo Gallery and Gifts in Indian Head.
