The Ken Segal Gallery
is pleased to present, The Treaty 3 Suite (Outside Promises), by Tim Schouten. This is our second solo exhibition with Schouten. His show, In the Absence of Horses was well received in December 2004. Schouten is represented by Ken Segal Gallery and he has participated in solo and group shows locally and nationally. His work will be included in the survey exhibition Scratching the Surface: The Post-Prairie Landscape at Plug In ICA in 2007.
The Treaty 3 Suite (Outside Promises), a series of 14 encaustic paintings is part of Schoutens ongoing Treaty Suites Project. The project was conceived in 2003 as a series of eleven suites of paintings, each based on photographs taken at the exact locations of the signings of each of the eleven “numbered treaties” between First Nations and Canada.
The work in The Treaty 3 Suite (Outside Promises) is based on photos taken at a number of locations in Manitoba and Ontario within Treaty 3 territory. Treaty 3 was signed on Harrison Creek at the NW Angle of Lake of the Woods in October of 1873. Once the site of a Métis community called Norwest and a Hudson Bay Company trading post on the Dawson Trail, the location has now completely reverted to bush. Adhesions to Treaty 3 were signed the following year at Lac Seul and at Fort Francis. To prepare for this work, Schouten did research in various archives and went to these places where he interviewed local people and took hundreds of photographs.
Schouten says, “The paintings in this body of work attempt to convey a sense of the histories of the places depicted. The beauty of the landscape is taken for granted in these paintings which primarily intend to evoke a sense of “more going on here than meets the eye” and a questioning of the meanings and politics of place.”
The work is strong and shows Schoutens mastery of the encaustic medium. Encaustic is a hot wax painting process in which wax-bound pigments are fused together and adhered to a ground with heat applied from an external source. The paintings in this show are part of an on ongoing series of paintings that makeup an important body of work. The series was featured on an episode of the 2006 season of the nationally televised series Landscape As Muse.
The exhibition opens with an artist’s reception from 6:30 to 8:30 on Thursday, November 2, 2006 and runs until November 25. The work will be available for preview and sale beginning November 1.

Steel Wheels Studio, Kirk Creed and Veronica Green - The WAVE Artists’ Studio Tour
Update on their fire recovery
Hi Artists and Friends,I went up to visit with Norma Torbert, then we both drove up to Veronica and Kirk’s, Steel Wheels Studio.To our luck Veronica was in, she was busy doing maintenance on the new/old house they have!!!How wonderful to know they have a house- a house that is spacious and warm because of a gift of a wood stove from WAVE artists Fred and Kate. The stove is named something.... Comfort. It is a real comfort in the true sense of the word.Any way Veronica was well, we had tea in the living room, sitting comfortably in big armchairs with the autumn sun streaming in the large window. I was happy to see her painting studio set up in the same room and she was painting a lake landscape. And there is a space for Kirk’s potter’s wheel too. On a porch like setting where he still needs another wood stove. A little bedroom is right off the main living area.Every window has a beautiful view. Storm windows are still needed so this winter the stretched plastic window covers will have to do the trick. The house was built around 1930ties, a regular working man’s family home. It is placed on a pony wall fully insulated underneath.The place has great potential. I have an eye for that since I have been there, done that. Even the out house is cute! (got to have an incentive to go out there later in January)Friends/ artists of WINNBAC Coop thank you for your generosity contributing in cash and kind at the benefit. Veronica and Kirk have vacated their summer trailer and moved into their new old home.SincerelyHelma Rogge RehdersYour colleague in creative synergy
