In The Manawaka Gallery: Head & Shoulders, Knees & Toes

Drawn Together is a group of women artists from south western Manitoba. They work in a range of media including ceramics, photography, encaustic, egg-writing, textiles, print, paint, coloured pencil and collage. The group was formed to create a supportive environment for rural and urban women artists at various stages in their careers, and they get together to discuss their practices, collaborate and encourage each other.

Their show “Head & Shoulders, Knees & Toes” will be on exhibit in the Manawaka Gallery until April 29.

In the Manawaka Gallery: Reflections of the North

Reflections of the North, a new Touring Exhibition by Kirk Sauer

This narrative collection by accomplished and award-winning artist Kirk Sauer draws on his many years of teaching, painting and recording elements of culture and society of the people of Canada’s north. Illustrating the people of the north, who have resided on the land for generations and their ways of co-existing with nature in their efforts to survive and flourish, this body of art is grounded in the relational trust between community members and the artist. At once educational, entertaining, and insightful, Reflections of the North has the power to engage all ages at a time when many questions are being asked about the north, and when the steadily increasing demands for resource development pose a threat to both the land and its people.

Reflections of the North will be on display in the Manawaka Gallery until January 5, 2016.
