4 Artists In Plain View

The Manitoba Crafts Council opened its annual juried show, "Culture-Counterculture", at Outworks Gallery this past Thursday evening, Sept. 17. It's a great show and worth a visit or two. Doug Melnyk, speaking for the jury, said about the entries: "Overall, we were faced with a wide variety of creative processes that blurred the lines between art and craft. Many pieces were excellent in terms of  technical considerations, but the nicer surprise was the large number which were so personally expressive and so wildly experimental."
The work of four artists from In Plain View were selected for this show -
Aliza Amidude's mixed media book: "I've Often Thought About Killing Myself"
Kathleen Black's pate de verre bowl "Flowering Steel Cannikin"
Jolanta Kieres Solkaska's glass and metal piece "Emotions"
Jo'Anne Kelly's ceramic and painted silk wall piece "Goth Medusa".
The show continues at Outworks until Sept. 29. Following that, the exhibition will travel to Neepawa at the Viscount Cultural Centre for the month of October.
