150 FACES OF CANADA
Throughout the 2017 season, WCA has been encouraging its visitors to create a self-portrait with the medium of their choice. On August 18th, the gallery will be covered from floor to ceiling with portraits created by many different people from many different walks of life. The project stems from our belief that every person has a story to tell. Each self-portrait featured in the exhibition tells a unique story about the individual who created it. Together, this mosaic of 150 self-portraits gives viewers a snapshot of the diverse population that makes up our proud nation.
Kati Nagy works in both watercolour and graphite. Her artwork focuses on the aspect of growth in life that often goes unobserved. Beyond Sight is an exploration of intuition and trust.
Weiming Zhao is a Brandon based artist who has been painting "En Plein Air" for the past 14 years almost on a daily basis, he has built up a portfolio of over 5,000 works and has had 17 solo exhibitions. Many of his works are in the Manitoba Provincial Art Collection and private collections across Canada.
The Exhibition will run until September 5th, 2017. The gallery is open 10:00am – 5:30pm daily.
