Neal McLeaod - Dreams of my Father's Horses, 2014

Nowhere else in the world will you find a larger or more comprehensive collection of Saskatchewan visual art than in the SK Arts Permanent Collection. This collection includes approximately 3,000 works of 750 artists, and represents the work of our province's artists over the past seven decades. Our goals are to preserve art by contemporary artists in Saskatchewan and ensure the public has access to it.

You will find everything from paintings, drawings, textiles, prints, photographs and sculptures in the collection. This wide variety of styles and media demonstrates some of the diversity and talent of Saskatchewan artists. Artwork from the collection is frequently included in exhibitions throughout the province and country, is loaned to organizations, and is also rented to workplaces through our Art Rental program.

We accept submissions to the collection twice per year. Learn more here.
