Graffiti Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of our new exhibit, GRADS: OFF THE SOFA, featuring artwork by Bronwyn Luts-Greenhow, Morgan Traa, Scotland Cook, Madelym Gowler, Bill Younger and Netsanet Shawl.

Opening Reception: June 23, 2022 at 7:00 – 10:00 pm

Music: DJ Kinetik

Admission is free with donation of a non-perishable food item

Featuring the work of six recent University of Manitoba Bachelor of Fine Art graduates, GRADS: OFF THE SOFA showcases a wide range of mediums including photography, glass, ceramics, and painting. Scotland Cook, Madelyn Gowler, Bronwyn Lutz-Greenhow, Netsanet Shawl, Morgan Traa and Bill Younger each draw upon their personal lived experiences to explore the issues facing contemporary society and to dream of a better future. Common themes include environmentalism, mass consumption, and life under late capitalism.

Initially these works were exhibited as part of the School of Art’s 2022 BFA Honours Exhibition. This show unites these artworks once again, but this time in a different environment. The Graffiti Gallery is pleased to support these emerging artists as they transition from the academic context to the wider art world.

Graffiti Art Programming acknowledges the generous support of the Manitoba Arts Council.

Graffiti Art Programming Inc. is a not-for-profit community art centre dedicated to celebrating the many roles that the arts play in the lives of all Manitobans and is committed to enhancing the cultural well being of communities and neighbourhoods.
