School Gallery Tours


The Portage & District Arts Centre is offering Gallery Tours for School Groups of all ages. This is a excellent opportunity for students and faculty to see a variety of art forms from Regional Artists and is a great addition the the current Arts curriculum. Students will be fully engaged learning the artistic process of how each piece was made and will be encouraged to interact with the Artist or Docent. Tours are available Tuesday through Friday. Bookings are accepted a minimum of 2 weeks prior to the tour. Donations to the Gallery are welcome. Contact the Portage & District Arts Centre at 204-239-6029 or email pdac@mts.net to book your tour today!

MORE THAN JUST THE ART ...

Curated by Pauline Braun & Audrey Lute.


ABOUT THE PROJECT

Each participant was given a unique set of guidelines, including six categories and five adjectives, to use in making one work of art. The guidelines were taken from *Artist’s Book Ideation Cards, which are designed to “jump start a new project or inform one in progress”. We gave each participant one opportunity to trade a single category and a single adjective. Everyone was given 12 months to compete the project and send us 3 images of their work, along with a short statement and biography. We asked that they keep their participation confidential.


We had some simple goals in mind. We wanted the project to be fun but more importantly we wanted to encourage fellow artists to stretch themselves creatively and to work outside their comfort zones. It was also about levelling the playing field between artists from different geographical areas, different lifestyles, and varying levels of art education and experience. Everyone played by the same rules. Resumes and reputations were not considered. The identities of the participants were not revealed until we had received all of the requested images.


Through regular monthly email updates and a project website, we kept participants informed and on June 14, 2015 we launched the updated website, complete with a virtual gallery!

ABOUT THE ORGANIZERS

Pauline Braun is a mixed media artist. Born in rural Saskatchewan, she spent most of her life in Northern Manitoba before moving to Winnipeg in 2003. "I grew up being encouraged to embrace challenge. This has been the driving force in my art practice as well as in life. I have a strong connection to my environment. Recently, I have been preoccupied with the idea that nothing is random or haphazard. In retracing my personal journey, I am thinking about how each brief encounter has had an effect; helping to shape my identity and my sense of place."

Audrey Lute recently moved from St. Martin, and now lives in Gilbert Plains Manitoba where she works from her home studio. Audrey primarily used acrylic and oil in her practice, however she enjoys exploring other mediums. With a new found freedom and inspired by trends of today's world, her recent work shares a unique perspective of equality, peace, tolerance and understanding - life as it could be. Audrey has exhibited her work in solo and group shows throughout the province. Her work has been supported by the Manitoba Arts Council.
