Many Moods ending, Nielsen and Parsons launch new PDAC shows

MAIN GALLERY

Last chance to see Many Moods of Manitoba

Many Moods of Manitoba a collection of fibre art pieces that are Susan Selby’s interpretations of scenes of Manitoba will conclude its Main Gallery showing on March 9.

Many Moods of Manitoba shows how Selby has come to love and be inspired by the prairie vistas. Large views of endless skies, boreal and aspen forests, as well as closer views of trees, grasses, flowers and leaves, are the subjects she desires to interpret in her art. The quilts are created using three-layer construction, consisting of front, batting, and backing held together with thread stitching. Selby employs other fibre techniques including dyeing, painting, layering, raw edge appliqué fusing, couching yarns and ribbons, cheesecloth application with plenty of hand-stitching and machine-stitching techniques.

City Life by John Nielsen

For this series, local artist John Nielsen painted pictures based on photographs that he has taken over the years. Most of the subjects are people in everyday situations. When making paintings based on photographs, Nielsen allows himself to make creative changes; for him, that is the most enjoyable part of making art.

 

POP-UP GALLERY

The Reflections Exhibit by Tatum Parsons

Tatum Parsons has always loved to create abstract art. When looking for more of a fluid-looking abstract medium, Tatum stumbled upon resin. She was impressed with how she could manipulate the liquid by adding tints and using a blow torch or heat gun to create pieces that resemble the elements of earth — from crashing waves, to desert sands in the wind, to pieces that look like she sliced through granite.
