    Typical Hipster Rehash The main claim to fame of this art gallery is that they have managed to siphon close to a million dollars Possibly more in Government fund to Aid the homeless. Basically it appears to be just another. Part of the Buildings owners plan to Convert the area into a Upscale High rent area. By siphoning off his Government grants to aid the homeless. And rebuilding his other properties. True they will no doubt be able to give you one or two feel good stories..About the great work they are doing. But there are hundreds that they are exploiting to pretty the place up. And they have no plan on were they will dump the homeless once they are done with them.

Memories of the Street Each of us have a relationship with the streets where we grew up or visited or live now. Being human in the 20th and 21st centuries makes it nearly impossible for those of us who are of a western culture to not have experienced main street somewhere. The work of photographer […]

Opening night features a vinyl party, with all guests encouraged to bring their best-loved 33 RPM Vinyl Albums, or drop the needle on some music from a selection of the artists’ collections of Rock, Folk, Jazz and Blues.

Factum Ex translates to English as “it came from” and the three participating artists explore this theme via mixed media visuals that represent experience and impressions gathered over their varied journeys through life.

Shawn Berard, Michael Luczak, and Val Huffman first met each other roughly at the same time, in the late 1990s, and have become good friends over the intervening 20 years. Each one of them arrived in the present time under very different circumstances, and they each possess very different philosophies, both in life and in art. What binds them together is a shared devotion toward a satisfying life in general, and a fascination with creative symbolism in contemporary art.

Each of us have a relationship with the streets where we grew up or visited or live now. Being human in the 20th and 21st centuries makes it nearly impossible for those of us who are of a western culture to not have experienced main street somewhere.

There is another side to the street which is not concrete or buildings or travellers. It is people who live on the street. Macpherson has created portraits of them that reflects the person behind the circumstance. What is seen is not always pleasant or reassuring, but it is always grounding and real.

I invite you to visit the streets of Bill Macpherson to join in discovering a new place, to remember old ones and to see new faces that may evoke or create memories for you. I hope this provokes you to experience anew that which is around you.

Brook Drabot is a glass artist living and creating in Winnipeg Manitoba. She has studied at the Sheridan school of craft and design, Red Deer Collage and Pratt Fine Arts Centre. Elements of naturalist collections, botanical references, personalized ritual and fairy tale imaginings are incorporated into her glass to create work that is both familiar and otherworldly. Experimenting between flameworked, blown and cast glass Brook often works combining multiple small components together.

Housed within a medicine chest, I have created glass and ceramic reproductions from antique bottles. They are made from slip cast c…lay, mold blown and kiln cast glass. The bottle display was inspired by the Manitoba Museum’s collection from the Manitoba Glass Company, Beausejour 1906-1914.

Theses bottles have become a way to experiment with a variety of techniques and materials within a limited form. I’ve been working with the ideas of personal medicines and rituals, as well as sent memory and spirit vessels. Some bottles contain homemade medicine and potions, while others serve to contain the essence of a specific location or individual.
