The Art Gallery of Southwestern Manitoba is hosting a public reception Thursday evening for the launch of three exhibitions.
Starting at 7:30 p.m., the main gallery will feature two exhibitions by Manitoba artists — "WE are THREE and The Mother" by Kerri-Lynn Reeves and "Openings" by Lisa Wood, the AGSM announced in a news release.
The winning photographs in Sunrise Credit Union’s 2019 "Our Manitoba Photo Contest" will be showcased in the community gallery.
The two exhibitions in the main gallery kick off a full year of programming dedicated to artists in the southwestern Manitoba region.
Lisa Wood is an assistant professor in the Visual and Aboriginal Arts department at Brandon University and has created a body of work that combines time-lapse photography and figurative art. Inspired by an art show opening, Wood has incorporated painting, drawing, collage, installation and photography to explore surveillance technology, the body and eating in relation to social psychology.
Kerri-Lynn Reeves, who is from the Virden area, creates works using various techniques and media, including fibre and screen printing. Featuring works inspired by her upbringing on a farm in Two Creeks, Man., Reeves’ work explores the relationship of the social and material, and is often done in collaboration with her child and co-parent.
A free lunch and look tour will be hosted on Friday at noon. Both main gallery artists will be on hand to discuss their work.
Sponsored by Sunrise Credit Union, Keywest Photo and the AGSM, the annual "Our Manitoba Photo Contest" was open to all Manitobans, and each photographer was able to submit a maximum of three images. Since 2013, winning entries from the "Our Manitoba Photo Contest" have been displayed in the Sunrise Credit Union calendar and the Art Gallery of Southwestern Manitoba.
"WE are THREE and The Mother" and "Openings" will be featured in the main gallery until July 5, and "Our Manitoba Photo Contest" will be in the community gallery until June 1.
