Joe Fafard at Ottawa Gallery Jean-Claude Bergeron

Saskatchewan artist Joe Fafard will be showing a number of works at the Galerie d’art Jean-Claude Bergeron, from today to September 25th. The Ottawa gallery has many of Fafard’s cow and horse portraits for sale.

Fafard is internationally renowned and according to the National Gallery of Canada, his art is thought to have “boldly blazed a path for the reinvigoration of sculpture in the Canadian contemporary art scene”.

For more on Fafard, and to see him at work as his career was just beginning, watch the 1973 NFB documentary “I Don’t Have to Work that Big”, by Michael McKennirey.
