Catherine Perehudoff – Artist Biography

Catherine Perehudoff

Catherine Perehudoff is a second-generation landscape painter, daughter of Saskatoon artists Dorothy Knowles and William Perehudoff. She has been capturing, in paint, the beauty of the western landscape for over twenty-five years.

Her landscapes are alive with intimacy, capturing the prairie's vast expanses and immensity of the Rockies as a private experience for the viewer. A regular at the famous Emma Lake Workshops, Perehudoff has become a master at capturing the transient beauty of nature. From the open prairies and northern woods to quiet shores, she paints these scenes with soft yet densely applied brush strokes.

Known for her deft touch, Perehudoff depicts the land as ephemeral; a sensory experience of light, movement and colour. Her classes at the University of Saskatchewan and the Voss Folkschool in Norway have helped her develop her own unique approach to the landscape tradition. She has developed her painting skills under the tutelage of renowned painters such as Kenneth Noland, Reta Cowley and Barbara Ballachey.

Since 1979, Perehudoff has exhibited in over 50 solo and group shows and has been published in over 30 articles and magazines. Her work is in major collections including the Alberta Foundation for the Arts, the Canada Council Art Bank, the Mendel Art Gallery, the Whyte Museum, and the Robert McLaughlin Gallery.

Odjig is frequently referred to as the "Grandmother of Indigenous Art." She has been the recipient of many awards, honours and recognitions for her works, to name a few: The Order of Canada, the Governor General's Award, and eight Honorary Doctorates. Her works have been shown in the National Gallery of Canada, The McMichael Canadian Art Collection, the Canadian Museum of Civilization and the Art Gallery of Ontario.


She established the first native-run fine art print house in Winnipeg, Manitoba in 1971. Known as 'Odjig Indian Prints,' this print house was so successful that it evolved into an Indigenous gallery space in 1974, called the New Warehouse Gallery, run by Odjig and her husband, Chester Beavon. She was also a founding member of the Indian Group of Seven. This artistic group's purpose was to promote Contemporary Indigenous art and artists.
