Laureen Marchand lives in Val Marie, Saskatchewan, just north of the Montana border at the gateway to Grasslands National Park. Inspired by this region’s subtlety and remoteness, her paintings reflect on our ideas about and awareness of beauty. These artworks invite us to see not just the painted object, but ourselves in it.
Laureen Marchand has exhibited regionally, nationally and internationally in more than two dozen solo and two-person exhibitions as well as over 40 group shows, in Canada and internationally. Her paintings have been recognized by the Saskatchewan Arts Board and the Canada Council, are held in many public and private collections, and have been represented in exhibition catalogues and reviewed in newspapers and magazines. Laureen Marchand has been artist in residence at the Leighton Colony/Banff Centre for the Arts, the Tyrone Guthrie Centre in Ireland, and the Ragdale Foundation in Illinois, among others.
