Douglas Bentham: The Tablets

With an international reputation for large scale sculpture spanning more than four decades, The Tablets represents the Saskatoon-based sculptors' first full-fledged gallery installation. The Tablets presents a collection of metal assemblages of richly textured bronze and brass panels constructed from  an array of salvaged materials; an homage to memory and monumentality, language and culture.

The exhibition runs March 2 – May 26, 2019, with an opening event on Saturday, March 2 in Gallery A from 2-4 pm at Touchstones Nelson.

The works are loaned by The Art Gallery of Swift Current on behalf of Mr. John Mann.
