EN PLEIN AIR MANITOBA: Paintings by Talia Keyton 

From July 3 to July 29

Due to the Corona Virus there will be no artist reception.

About the Show:

Away from the madness of society, one is free to observe nature’s lessons. Violent erosion. The colours of lichen and moss. Grey rock, cracked, shattered and worn. A fallen tree. An owl’s nest. The carcass of a dead deer. There is infinite meaning and endless value in every view, if only we become quiet and open enough to read the scripture of the landscape.

With this series I aim to break free from the four walls of my studio and experience the act of painting 'En Plein Air” - in the open air. Painting from life is an extraction of time; a capturing of the essence of existence during a specific moment in the artist’s experience.

The paintings of this series are fresh off the easel, all created within the last three months. They seek to explore the act of observation, and most especially how experiencing discomfort can affect both the act and the outcome. My goal is to remain in greater equanimity with my surroundings as I attempt to place a bookmark in the current spirit, vitality and essential character of our local landscapes.

About the Artist:

Talia Keyton, originally from the U.K. now resides in the lovely little town of St. Eustache, Manitoba where she works from her home based studio to produce works of intense colour and content. Graduating from U of M with a degree in Environmental Design, Talia is now pursuing her lifelong passion for the arts. With her work, Talia aims to create a whimsical world of ideals - a combined reflection of her surroundings, with the way she thinks they ought to be. Influenced heavily by nature - Expression of life in general, and all the different ways that life can manifest; in endless possibilities of colours, sounds and shapes will never cease to inspire her.

 A large body of her work is also based on how she sees the world through “Color-graphemic synesthesia” – a neurological phenomenon in which written words, individual letters and numbers are all inherently coloured. Her synesthetic pieces all start with an individual word and a desire to capture the associated colours and sensations she experiences in their purest form. Talia invites you to view her work at Wayne Arthur Gallery and at www.tkkeyton.com

OPEN CONCEPT: Mixed Media by Sandra Dalton

From July 31 to September 2, 2020

Due to the Corona Virus there will be no artist reception.

About the Show:

“Open Concept” is a mixed media collection. The year 2020 is a time to focus on clear, bright, positive visions. My art allows me to be open with creativity, with no barriers. Bright colours flow using alcohol ink. Detailed, architectural drawings. Visually, emotionally, free-flowing acrylic paintings. I am inspired using different mediums, techniques, and ideas. 2020 is a great time and great way to view what is in front of us all. I am excited for this show and the outlook it will provide through my art.

About the Artist:

Born in Ottawa into a military family, lived in St. Thomas, Ontario, England, Trenton, Ontario, Borden, Ontario and settled in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Father is a retired General with the Canadian Armed Forces so life was experienced through very interesting eyes!

My artwork started out of necessity. Not out of a necessity for profit but out of a necessity for relief. My life has had many ups and downs and in 2012 it took a huge down. I suffered a severe back injury and my life became a turmoil of chronic pain. With chronic pain it is extremely difficult to concentrate. I was unable to read, I’ve never been a huge TV watcher. I needed something to take my mind off of the pain. I picked up a pencil and started drawing. Simple pencil drawings of flowers, animals, doodles were my first attempts. I then decided to try some more structured pen drawings of architecture; old, new, abandoned, historic. I could pick up a pen and sit up in bed for a few minutes at a time and escape from the pain. Through lots of medical intervention I have become more mobile but still very limited in certain things. My art is my escape! I am self-taught in all mediums that I have ventured to try. This is not a sad story nor a story of sympathy. It is a true narrative of how art has been my escape, my breaking free and my distraction.
