Assistant Curator, Jas Lally offers an evening behind the scenes guided tour of the current exhibition 'A Sublime Vernacular by Levine Flexhaug'.

Levine Flexhaug
'A Sublime Vernacular: The Landscape Paintings'
June 30 to September 24, 2017
B.C. Binning Gallery

A Sublime Vernacular: The Landscape Paintings of Levine Flexhaug offers the first overview of the extraordinary career of Levine Flexhaug (1918 — 1974), born in the Treelon area near Climax, Saskatchewan. It brings together approximately 450 of the artist's paintings as well as several of his mural-sized works.

An itinerant painter, he sold thousands of variations of essentially the same landscape painting in national parks, resorts, department stores and bars across western Canada from the late 1930s through the early 1960s. Whatever its variation, a Flexhaug image represents a Western icon, a silent unspoiled Eden that encapsulates the conventions of sublime landscape painting in a kind of painter's shorthand. For the Contemporary Art Gallery it continues a strand in our programming where we present work by artists who for a variety of reasons, operated outside of the strict mainstream of the art world.
