Jane Gateson

Opening Friday, November 1st 6-9PM

Jane has studios on the Assiniboine River (Winnipeg, Manitoba) and also on Lake Winnipeg (Victoria Beach, Manitoba). Her art is large and small, and as eclectic as the media she uses.....oil & cold wax, acrylics, resists & collage done on paper, canvas, or wood panels.

In 2016-17 she began a project called "Daily Diaries". She painted 4 small works each day of what she saw, heard and felt by the water and land near her studio. The powerful water, calm and turbulent, freezing and melting, is a great teacher about the seasons of life, death and renewal. Animals, insects, birds and plants have things to say, alive on the earth as we are, but in their own world, mysterious and intriguing.

In the fall of 2018, she began the "Daily Diaries" for a second time, completing 6 small repetitive works each day she is in the studio. And each day the land and the animals near the water bring something new to the diary. In 2021, these works will be shown at the Mennonite Heritage Centre Gallery in Winnipeg, MB. and the Gallery in the Park in Altona, MB.

"Rover and Other Random Thoughts" is a second body of work she is completing. It's a silly and serious exploration of the "wild animal" who lives in our home, the beloved and mystifying creature we give human attributes to, and yet know we never fully understand.
"Rover and Other Random Thoughts" will be shown at Warehouse Artworks in Winnipeg, MB. Opening is First Friday, Nov. 1, 2019. The show continues until November 15th.

Emilie Lemay

Opening Friday, June 7th 6-9PM

French Canadian painter Emilie Lemay grew up on the shores of Brome Lake, in Quebec’s Eastern Townships. She lives and finds inspiration under the extraordinary Manitoba sky since 2002.


Emilie is a member of Mentoring Artists for Women’s Art, La Maison des Artistes Visuels Francophones and The Cloud Appreciation Society. Her projects in cultural mediation reflect her commitment to support and celebrate visual arts. Her artworks can be found in public and private collections throughout Canada.


Artist Statement


“I paint landscapes that represent the land and its emotional charge. My artistic practice is based on observation of atmospheric abstractions between land and sky.


Every painting starts with experiencing and documenting the landscape; hiking, sketching, painting en plein air and taking reference photographs are the first steps. I complete my artworks afterwards in the studio or during live painting performances. Multiple brushstrokes and washes in watercolour, acrylic or water soluble oil paint create depth in luminous colours.


I am inspired by solar variations that reveal the colours of the land; these natural elements reflect memories of wild spaces, weathered storms, lights on the horizon, moments of grace and the passage of time. My artworks express a profound attachment to nature as well as hope that our environment will have a sustainable future. May they evoke places you cherish and powerful emotions you experienced in the great outdoors.”

                                 Paintings by Lisa Bissett

 

                                

                                 Lisa Bissett's paintings are meditations on the beauty and complexity of ordinary objects, spaces, and experiences. The show’s title comes from the idea of taking the time to really look at things, to take a step back, to take a breath, and appreciate what is.

                                

                                 The series “Change” looks at the intersection of private bodies with public spaces.  The series “When Dove met Rooster” uses still life objects to reflect on a range of experiences in relationships. Other paintings are dedicated to the pleasure that flowers bring, along with patterns in fabrics, wallpaper, and other everyday objects. Lisa enjoys immersing herself in patterns and repetitions, thinking about how things are created and used.

 

                                 In addition to achieving a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Manitoba, Lisa completed the Mentoring Artists for Women's Art (MAWA) Foundation Mentorship Program in 2008 and participated in MAWA's Mini-Mentorship in Painting in 2010.  In 2009 and 2012, she was the grateful recipient of Manitoba Arts Council  creation grants.  

 

                                 Lisa's paintings, prints, tiles and drawings have been shown  at MAWA, Warehouse Artworks, Tara Davis Studio, Altona’s Gallery in the Park, and the Outworks Gallery.  Her work is held in various private collections in Manitoba, Ontario, Alberta and British Columbia.  She lives in Winnipeg.

“Changing Values”

Paintings by Ray Renooy

February 1st-15th

Opening Friday, February 1st 5pm-9pm

Changing Values:

A minute moving among the patterns of beauty and the dreams of love is greater and more precious than an age filled with splendor granted by the weak to the strong… I have learned to listen to silence. To hear its choirs singing the song of ages, chanting the hymns of space, and disclosing the secrets of eternity.

The things which the child loves remain in the domain of the heart until old age. The most beautiful thing in life is that our souls remain hovering over the places where we once enjoyed ourselves. I am one of those who remembers those places regardless of distance or time.

Seek ye counsel of the aged for their eyes have looked on the face of the years… pay heed to them.”

Khalil Gibran

“ Hidden Inspirations “

Artist’s Statement

 For many years, I had been admiring a painting on the wall at my brother- and-sister-in-law’s home. I did not know the Artist’s name, as there was no signature to be found, but I knew I loved this particular painting. A few years ago, my teacher and mentor, Milos Milidrag, mentioned that my artistic style reminded him of a German painter named Franz Marc. Unfamiliar with this artist, I proceeded to research him. While looking at paintings of his, I stumbled across the very same piece I had been admiring all those years. In delving further, it became apparent that he and I had more in common than artistic style; we shared a strong affinity for animals and art. Franz Marc has been an inspiration to me for many years, despite having only recently learned about his work.

 This show is dedicated to an artist who has long passed, yet remains alive in spirit and influence.

Jo Smoley

Two Eyes One Soul is a solo show, featuring the artwork of Jo Smoley and hosted by Warehouse Artworks at 222 McDermot Avenue. Opening reception is on First Friday in the Exchange District, September 7th and runs through to September 21st.

 

Jo will be showing her brushwork paintings which celebrate nature through a contemporary format and her fluid art pieces where she pours paint onto large canvases and wooden circles. Her paintings are hidden treasures to the eye and are strongly influenced by the Chi and spirits she feels around her.

 

Jo grew up in the Wolseley area into an extremely creative family who taught her everything was possible if you wanted it bad enough. All you have to do is work at it until you get it right and so through classes, networking and perseverance, she is doing just that.

 

“I believe becoming an artist takes a lifetime,” Jo says. “Along this journey you rediscover and reinvent your technique, always searching for your own personal perfection.”

 

Her work has found its way into homes across Canada, the USA, Germany and Trinidad. She has artist connections all over the world through social media.

 

Jo creates a monthly newsletter for LCAG (Local Colour Art Group) to keep their 100+ members informed on the clubs events. She has participated and been involved in the forming of the Artists of East St. Paul Art Tour and creates the brochure and poster for the event. As well, she coordinates an evening, where once a week, artists in the East St. Paul area can paint and share their ideas and knowledge. She is excited to have been juried into Winnipeg’s premier art show, Art Expo, this October 26th – 28th at Assiniboia Downs. Jo sells her art and prints through local art shows, Fine Art America and does commissions regularly.  Her web-site which shows a timeline of her artistic journey can be seen at: http://joanne-smoley.pixels.com  . You can find her on Instagram @jos__art and on Facebook: Jo Smoley.

Les Brandt: My Manitoba Home

My new works are about places and events in Winnipeg and the province that strike a deeply personal and emotional connection with me. Pouring paint on canvas and moving it around to capture the feeling of being there, of bringing it to life and hopefully, connect the viewer to share the experience with me. Like skating on the river in winter, canoeing in summer, ice-breakup on the lake in spring, the rocks of the Canadian Shield, or just the light on the river at sunset. Mostly acrylic on canvas with some smaller watercolours on paper. Also included in the show will be some of the portraits of my animal friends. The polar bears and cows that always seem to intrude on my imagination...
