Pulse Gallery: Rosella Farmer - Selected Works, June 1 - 30, Opening Reception June 19
Rosella Farmer is a Manitoba artist who work in many different mediums and experiments with various techniques. She loves to paint subjects from nature as well as portraits, still life, collages and contemporary abstract works. Traveling throughout Canada and the United States has brought much inspiration and subject matter to the easel. Many paintings have also been inspired by the large flower bed in her backyard, full of colourful perennial plants, bushes and trees. Much of her work focuses on light and colour.
She has been a member of her local art society, the Charleswood Art Group, since 2003 and was
juried into the Manitoba Society of Artists in 2010. She served as the Membership Chairperson for
four years from 2011 - 2015. In 2015, she was juried into the Assiniboia Group of Artists as well.
Rosella has been involved in the art community throughout the years and has exhibited in
numerous venues in Manitoba since 2009. Some of these were juried shows, including, The
Manitoba Society of Artists Open Juried Competition, Artarama Juried Art Show, Winnipeg, MB
and Art Expo Juried Art Show, Winnipeg, MB.
She has also won awards, one through a competition sponsored by the Artists Network,
International Mixed Media competition, and was awarded publication of her painting "A Tangled
Fling" in a mixed media book titled, "Incite 3: The Art of Storytelling", in December, 2014. This
painting involved a technique called Zendoodle or Zentangle, which involves small patterns
invented through mark-making. What made this award even more special was that the model
was her granddaughter, who in the picture was joyfully flinging her long hair over her head. Since
then other awards have been received from online art competitions and also from a local Art
competition through the Red River Exhibitions yearly art competitions.
