STREET – Photography exhibit by Bill Macpherson

January 30, 2017 in Uncategorized

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 Bill Macpherson explores who we are on the street – how we are looked at and how, in turn, we look back at what is around us.
My most overwhelming memory of the street is the strong sense of place I experienced – I live here, these are my people, this is my place.
When I travel, I try to put myself back in that space – to feel what the people of that place feel, to relate as they do to their surroundings and the others around them.
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.

2016 AIR Exhibit Brook Drabot and Rika Hawes

January 6, 2017 in Uncategorized

Join us to check out the work of our 2016 AIR artists Brook Drabot and Rika Hawes

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.

Bottle Spirits
Housed within a medicine chest, I have created glass and ceramic reproductions from antique bottles. They are made from slip cast clay, 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.

Rika Hawes – In ‘All my Relations’ Rika Hawes uses video stories and re-visioned domestic objects
to explore and address racism with a focus on personal responsibility and individual
action.
