JULY 2015

POURING MY HEART OUT: Paintings by Suzanne Barrow
Opening Sunday, July 5 from 1 to 4 PM
And continues to July 29th

ABOUT THE SHOW

The title of this show "Pouring Her Heart Out" is taken literally when Suzanne begins each painting by pouring the paints onto her surface, encouraging the colour and the medium to meld together.  Each one is unique and leads the viewers on a voyage of discovery as their eyes journey throughout the piece.  This series of poured pieces, done in Watercolour and Acrylic is full of colour and is a visual treat.

ABOUT THE ARTIST

As an award winning visual artist, Suzanne Barrow specializes in large landscapes with endless skies over land and water.  While most of these works are painted in oils, the artist also enjoys watercolours, acrylics and mixed media, and often takes a detour from her norm to indulge in more contemporary pieces that flirt with the abstract.  This show is one of these detours.  Enjoy the ride!

AUGUST 2015

RESCUE Rx: Paintings by Lori Zébière
From August 2 to 26
Reception: Thursday, August 6, from 7 to 9 PM

ABOUT THE SHOW

The paintings in the Rescue Rx show were inspired by images and stories shared by animal rescue and rehabilitation workers, volunteers and adopters. The world of animal rescue can, at times, be an emotionally painful one. Workers and volunteers often deal with immeasurable grief, anger and guilt at the loss, neglect and abuse they are forced to witness on a daily basis. The intent of Rescue Rx is to focus on the positive experiences that come from being involved in the world of rescue through exploration of the human-animal relationship via the reciprocating benefits that each has on the other. As much as there are sad days, there are also happy ones. Watching an injured eagle fly free once again, or seeing an old unwanted dog wiggle like a puppy when he meets his brand new loving forever family are the rewards for enduring the tough days. As much as they need us, we need them. These success stories are a prescription for the wellbeing of all.

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Lori Zébière loves to paint any and all animals, creatures and critters, but especially dogs. Born in the Chinese zodiac’s year of the Metal Dog, she feels a kindred connection with canines and can’t imagine life without them. Lori also volunteers with the Wildlife Haven Rehabilitation Centre.

SEPTEMBER 2015

THE COLOURS OF LIGHT: Paintings by Elizabeth Delgatty
Opening Sunday, August 30, from 1 to 4 PM
and continues to Wednesday, September 30th

ABOUT THE SHOW

Elizabeth’s paintings demonstrate how a shaft of light can bring hopes of spring to a dreary winter’s day or full sunlight can turn an industrial eyesore into a vision of beauty.  Her new painting series done in watercolour, acrylic and pastel brings the many colours of light into focus and will dazzle you with the effects of sunlight on the landscape.

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Elizabeth grew up in Flin Flon, Manitoba surrounded by rocky outcrops, lakes and the never ending boreal forest. She spent her summers at the cabin on Big Island Lake. Sunlight dancing on the water, trees and rocks inspire many of her paintings. The lap of the waves on the shore, the rustle of the wind in the trees, the call of the loon, the solitude and peace of that perfect spot inhabit her soul. She captures these feelings in her paintings using watercolour, acrylics, pastel, and mixed media on different surfaces to give the viewer a respite from this busy world and take them momentarily, at least, to a peaceful place.
 
She began painting eleven years ago after 33 years teaching in the public school system. She is a past president of Local Colour Art Group and as well a member of the Selkirk Community Arts Centre, The Assiniboia Group of Artists Cooperative (Art Expo) and The Manitoba Society of Artists.  Her paintings have been honoured with awards in juried shows and are exhibited across North America.

OCTOBER 2015

RETROSPECTIVELY SPEAKING: Mixed Media by Alphonsine Koehler
Opening Sunday, October 4 from 1 to 4 PM
And continues to October 30th

ABOUT THE SHOW

The show includes people I used to know and people I wish I had met, places where I have been and places I haven't yet seen.

It is an examination of how my perspective has developed and changed over the years. It offers an expression of my journey thus far, and my discovery that we are all connected - to each other, to nature and to all that exists in the universe. 

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Alphonsine Koehler is a visual artist born in Ste. Rose du Lac, M.B. which is also where she currently resides. She works in acrylics, ink, watercolor, oil, clay sculpture and most recently, mixed media. She is primarily self-taught, with some formal study which includes art studies at the Prince Albert Arts Council in Saskatchewan with artist Gary Thurber (1978-79), Gail Adams School of Art in Saskatoon, SK. (1981-82), and a first year art class at the University of Saskatchewan with Professor Gary Bertieg (1988-89).

Since 1983, her work has been exhibited in venues and galleries in Saskatchewan and Manitoba. Most recently a collection of ink drawings was shown at the Birchwood Gallery in Winnipeg (Aug.-Nov. 2014). Alphonsine has been tutoring individuals and teaching groups of students and adults since 1984, privately in her home studio and by contract with schools and various arts organizations. Most recently she taught bas-relief in clay to children and adults at the Dauphin Pottery & Ceramics Club (Oct.-Nov. 2014).

ARTIST STATEMENT
The art experience has been an embodiment of bane and bliss in the endeavor to create art that is apropos, and yet grants the inner child some playfulness. My fascination with faces is unwavering. It is an alluring challenge to look into the "windows of the soul" and attempt to render a reasonable interpretation. However, in the process of cultivating and honing the craft, I am experiencing a deeper sense and need to use art to examine my existence and my relationship to all that is...So goes my journey. 

NOVEMBER 2015

AVIUM, A printmaking exhibit by Meg Hainstock and Stephen Petersen
Opening November 1 to December 2
Artist reception: Sunday, November 1 from 1 to 4 PM

ABOUT THE SHOW

A husband-and-wife printmaking duo explores images inspired by the word Avium.  Latin interpretation implies roads less traveled as well as the animal group Aves: the birds.  Thus, this will be an eclectic show of new works, with themes of freedom, flight and organic form woven throughout.

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Petersen and Hainstock are professional wildlife biologists who express their enthusiasm for the natural world through printmaking.  Their work is created by carving images onto wooden blocks that are then inked and transferred to paper using a printing press. The results are original pieces of artwork that reflect a traditional craft passed on by Meg’s father, Bob Hainstock.

DECEMBER 2015
