|Exhibition Opening Reception at the AGSM |
CELEBRATING 30 YEARS OF MENTORING WOMEN FOR WOMEN'S ART (MAWA) at the Art Gallery of Southwestern Manitoba
Four new exhibitions will open the fall season at the Art Gallery of Southwestern Manitoba with a public reception on Thursday, September 4 at 7:30PM. Planned in conjunction with the 30th anniversary of Mentoring Artists for Women’s Art (MAWA), all four exhibitions celebrate the history and vitality of the women’s art community in Manitoba. With work by over twenty women from around the province, the exhibitions spread throughout the Main Gallery, Community Gallery, Children’s Studio, and Foyer Display Case to draw connections between generations of artists and explore the shared creative process. Many of the artists will be in attendance at the opening reception, and the exhibitions will remain free and open to the public until September 20th in the Community Gallery and October 25th in Main Gallery and Children’s Studio.
In the Main Gallery, “Endangered Species” is a solo exhibition by the prolific late Manitoba artist Rosemary Kowalsky (1920 – 2006), whose large-scale vibrant paintings and drawings explored fragility of living things using the language of gardening. The exhibition is paired with “Lateral Symmetry”, which includes multimedia and sculptural works by three Manitoba artists whose practices respond to Kowalsky’s: Brandon-based printmaker, poet, and sculptor Basma Kavanagh, and Winnipeg-based artists Elvira Finnigan and Tracy Peters. The three artists’ work focuses on the blurred boundaries between nature and its human inhabitants, and the unpredictable forces that shape our environment.
In the Community Gallery, “In Process Together” offers a view into the creative process and the experience of mentorship through works-in-progress, experiments, sketches, notebooks, research, and finished works by artists from the newly formed Drawn Together – A Women’s Art Collective and “MAWA Mini-Mentorship: Approaches to Sculpture and Installation Practices with Chris Cooper.” The exhibition includes works by Sasha Amaya, Katharine Bruce, Amy Buehler, Becky Chinn, Susana V. Danyliuk, Anne Fallis Elliott, Cheryl Orr-Hood, Shawn Jordan, Alexis Kinloch, Chris Larsen, Mary Lowe, Lisa Lysack, Carolyn Mount, Gerry Oliver, Rosemarie Peloquin, Chris Reid, Wendy Seversen, Janet Shaw-Russell, and Marg Stewart.
Introducing the youngest generation of artists to the AGSM, “Recent Works by Éowynn, Age 8” in the Children’s Studio and Foyer Display Case creates parallels between Éowynn’s works and those in the Main Gallery. Passionate about art and inspired by nature and animals, Éowynn has taken numerous art classes at the AGSM.
The exhibitions will remain open until October 25th in the Main Gallery and Children’s Studio and September 20th in the Community Gallery. The Art Gallery of Southwestern Manitoba is located at 710 Rosser Avenue. It can be accessed either from the Town Centre parkade, or from the first floor of the Town Centre Mall through the elevators near the library. Parking in the Town Centre is free for AGSM visitors. Please note the gallery’s hours: Tuesday to Friday 10:00 AM – 5:00 PM, Thursday evenings until 9 PM, and Saturdays from 12PM – 5PM. Afterhours workshops and tours are available by appointment. Curator’s Tour of the exhibitions will take place on Thursday, September 11th, at 6pm. Visit www.agsm.ca for more info.
