FEBRUARY 2016

THE FABRIC OF MY LIFE, Fibre Art Collages by Bev Morton
From January 31, 2016 to March 2, 2016
Artist Reception: Sunday, January 31, 1 to 4 PM

ABOUT THE SHOW

In 1978, I had intended to make my first fabric piece. However, it wasn’t until 2009 that I learned how to do it without sewing and I have subsequently been working completely in fabric.

Many of my fabric pieces started as paintings and I have recreated them in fabric. Others are from my photos of vacations, family photos and photos taken in the gallery and at home.

Some of these pieces are real places and some not. One is Robert's old house on Cambridge and another is his grandfather's farm in Nova Scotia which I never saw. The one with the girl on the fence is really from my imagination (sort of), inspired by a poster I saw in my mother's bridge club in Florida.

I am focusing on where I live, work and dream: interiors in my home and in the gallery and places I have been to or dreamed of.

I use distinct lines to define form and colour, and include a lot of detail and pattern. I want to enable the viewer to see all that I see. I believe the simplicity of my pieces allows the viewer to complete the experience.

ABOUT THE ARTIST

I started painting in acrylic at the Forum Art Institute in 1969 and continued until 1973. When I graduated from the University of Manitoba in 1973, I stopped painting. In 1975, I met Wayne Arthur, who was an artist and sculptor. We subsequently married. Together in 1995, we opened the Wayne Arthur Sculpture and Craft Gallery at our home in St. Andrews, near Oak Hammock Marsh. The gallery has always showcased Manitoba artists and craftspeople. After Wayne passed away in 1999, I moved the gallery to Winnipeg. Together with my new husband, Robert MacLellan, I have run the Wayne Arthur Gallery at 186 Provencher Boulevard since November 30, 2002. After retiring from my full-time job, I started painting again in 2006, and sold my first paintings at the end of 2007. In late 2009, I started working in fabric.


MARCH 2016

THE SUN, THE MOON AND THE EARTH
Paintings by Roger V. Sutherland
From March 6 to 30
Artist Reception: Sunday, March 6, from 1 to 4

ABOUT THE SHOW

Regarding our relationship to the sun, the moon and the earth, how different would it be if just one went missing?

ABOUT THE ARTIST

I was born in the French speaking city of St. Boniface in 1951. In 1989, I started painting wildlife and prairie landscapes. I experimented with painting on plywood, masonite, paper and canvas using various methods of painting. Over time my painting style evolved into abstract painting that allows me to enjoy the freedom to express concepts and emotion.

During the 1980s I met several prairie artists that influenced and encouraged me. These artists are: Roger Lafreniere, Hubert Theroux, Guy St. Godard, Peter Dumans and Geno Mazze.

Currently I am a self-employed carpenter renovator and abstract artist living in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.


APRIL 2016

SOJOURN, Paintings by Ruth Kamenev
From April 1 to April 27
Artist Reception: Sunday, April 3, 1 to 4 PM

ABOUT THE SHOW

The transitory, the impermanent, the fleeting moments that we try to hold onto but that invariably slip through our fingers, these are the things that artists try to convey. What is a portrait if not an attempt to stop time, a landscape if not an effort to keep the memory of a particular place or event intact, a still life if not a message about the short-lived beauty of a blossom or harvest? We are all on a sojourn on Earth.

The lucky wanderers who call themselves artists are often on a personal sojourn amongst the styles, materials and subject matters of their days. They explore new media, tarry and linger in the pleasure of creation and look outward once again to the undiscovered country. They go places no one else can or ever will.
I have been on a journey like this since 1997 and still have many miles to go.
