ABOUT THE SHOW

"For the Love of Animals" is a random collection of animals painted in watercolour. You'll love the animals and the show.

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Garth has drawn and painted most of his life.
Work and travel took him away from his art for a few years but he never lost sight of his dream to pursue art in a fashion he could only imagine.
Garth pursued his art interests using regular pencils and coloured pencils, ink, pastels, oils, acrylics and watercolour, the latter being his passion. His art subjects include landscapes, structures, people, animals and abstracts, each with its own unique challenge. Garth spent two years in Mbarara, Uganda, teaching school at which time he kept his art alive by drawing or painting the people, places and animals he encountered.
His works have sold worldwide. An electronic reproduction of Garth’s works was juried and accepted in the Gaudemater Gallery, Czestochowa, Poland and the Avisen-avk Art Gallery, Denmark.

Garth teaches watercolour painting at the Forum Art Center in
Winnipeg and the Gwen Fox Gallery in Selkirk.
Garth’s art can be seen at his website www.garthpalanuk.com.
Garth is Past President of the Local Colour Art Group, he is a member of the Selkirk Community Art Center of Selkirk, Manitoba and The Manitoba Society of Artists.

“The natural beauty of Canada and the wonderful culture and the rich colours of India inspire me”.

Walking across Canada and India. QUIDAM has spent the last 2 summers (2012 + 2013) as a support driver for a monk who is on his 4th walk across Canada. He documented the journey with his digital SLR.

This show is a sampling of what he saw and captured in his travels.

He is a lens based artist (video and photography) whose videos and photography have been screened and shown across Canada, Cuba, India and Africa.

SEPTEMBER 2014

RETURN OF THE G.A.W.M.Y.S. – Journeys of Diversity: unique, exciting multi-media works that do not make any attempt to match your decor!
From August 29 to October 1, 2014
Opening Reception: Sunday, September 7, 1 to 4 p.m.

ABOUT THE SHOW

The GAWMYS are a group of seven professionally trained artists, kindred spirits and current or former art educators. Although some of the members have retired from teaching and have taken on new adventures, the group continues to keep in touch and intermittently exhibits together. Their friendship and collaboration has spanned several decades.

The group includes Gloria De Neve, Kathleen Hamann-Buckoski, Judith Panson, Francisco (Pancho) Puelles, Tom Roberts, Gina Roth and Erika Uustalu-Nicholson.

Each member has their own unique style, medium and artistic voice. The group’s name, G.A.W.M.Y.S. is a playful but earnest response to the notion that artists should not attempt to answer to home décor or decorating schemes…..hence, Good Art Won’t Match your Sofa!

The variety and subject matter of this exhibit is very diverse and includes unique sculpture, paintings, photography, drawings, functional ceramic pottery, prints, quilted and multi-media fabric art.

OCTOBER 2014

CONTINUANCE: Mixed Media by Kathleen Hamann Buckoski and Judith Panson
From October 3 to 29, 2014
Artist reception: Sunday, October 5, 1 to 4 PM

ABOUT THE SHOW

Judith and Kathleen work in a variety of media from paint, charcoal to various examples of fibre. Their subject matter runs the gambit from landscape to portrait to sheer imagination.

ABOUT THE ARTISTS

Kathleen Hamann Buckoski was born in Kamloops, British Columbia and raised in the interior of B.C. She received her art education in the Kootenay School of Art in Nelson, BC and after completing her post secondary education, moved to Manitoba in 1982.

Since moving to Manitoba, Kathleen's work has been on exhibit at several galleries and juried art shows. Her work can also be found in private collections in both Canada and the United States.
Kathleen's work reflects a realistic, yet imaginative style with her first passion being the beautiful and sometimes harsh landscapes of South Eastern British Columbia. Since moving to Manitoba her subject expanded to the back alleys of Winnipeg and the prairie landscape, then into other areas of Canada and the United States with her travels around North America.

Judith Panson was born in England and has lived in Canada since 1965. She graduated in art from Plymouth and London Universities and has taught art at all levels from elementary through college. She has worked at various arts related positions including design studio, pottery studio, department store window dresser, illustrating for greeting cards, a cookbook publisher and most recently illustrated early readers for Blueberry Hill Publications.

Her work, which is mainly of the natural world, has been in gallery, solo and group shows across Canada, several U. S. states, New Zealand and Mexico. She has won awards in juried shows in both Manitoba and Ontario for water media and printmaking. Her quilts have been in the Quilt Canada national juried show, won three prizes (two firsts and a second) at Manitoba Prairie Quilters’ Quilt Reflections in 2005 and a first, second and Best of Show in 2008. Her work hangs in both corporate and private collections in Mexico, Australia, Canada, England, Switzerland and the United States of America.


NOVEMBER 2014

2 VISIONS: AS TWO ARTISTS SEE THE WORLD, Paintings by Ruth Kamenev and Ida MacKenzie
From November 1 to 26, 2014
Artist reception: Sunday, November 2, 1 to 4PM

ABOUT THE SHOW

Ida MacKenzie: “Colour is my focus at the moment. I can't imagine my life without creating how I feel and what I see. I am doing this with watercolour and acrylics.”

Ruth Kamenev: “Winnipeg’s Exchange District and The Forks are two islands of the exotic in the otherwise edgy city center, far from the sprawling outlying suburbs of big box shopping malls and car-lined streets. At the Forks, it is easy to find micro-climates of riverbank forest with associated wildlife, and a slow walk through the Exchange District is like a leap back in time to earlier centuries with its slower pace of life. I have searched the two areas for examples of unexpected sights within our city center with joyous results.”

ABOUT THE ARTISTS

Ida is a mixed media artist and her paintings are a reflection of three months spent at a remote cottage in Northern Ontario where nature is pure and simple.

Ruth‘s watercolours are affectionate interpretations of the world around her, subject matter extensive, location wherever her eyes are looking, style realistic but stripped of the mundane.


DECEMBER 2014

“If I Won the Lottery…” - The Annual Group Show
Opening reception: Sunday, November 30, 1 to 5 PM
