Cre8ery Gallery and Studio, 125 Adelaide Street
Winnipeg, Manitoba Canada

Artist Statement Impromptu departures represent a visual quest to find meaning in confusion. An unplanned exploration to discover something new, or perhaps, something unexpectedly familiar. Conceived as an antidote to increasingly boring academic study, these works draw on the practice of surrealist automatism,* as a departure point to a surprise destination.

A solo exhibition by Erika Dueck Curated by Peter Tittenberger As lovers and makers of craft, we are easily seduced by materiality, technical virtuosity, and outrageous expenditures of time.

And like all good craft,…

As performance-based artists and queer women, Shawna Dempsey and Lorri Millan are passionate about documentation. The fine art canon neglects so many voices and practices; it is essential that we record our own. However, translating a live artwork into digital media can be fraught. What is the difference between documentation and a stand-alone work? What is appropriate to capture? How can the essence of something live be recorded? And what, in their experience, doesn’t work? A variety of examples from…
