exercise. I would like to think that the WAG plays an important part in this exercise.
It was the great communicator, Marshall McLuhan, who said: “Art at its most significant is a distant early warning system that can always be relied on to tell the old culture what is beginning to happen.” Art is one of our oldest languages, one of the first and last ways we communicate with each other. Before words, before the assemblage of vocabularies, there has been a visual means in which thoughts and emotions are made known. For centuries art has been the cultural expression of humankind, central to our survival and well being. The material we call art is an integral part of the history of civilization—tied to the idea of living. Art penetrates all sectors of our society. We may only see or understand part of the work, but we cannot deny its impact and place. Beyond the idea of beauty, meaning, or even truth—art is an expression of the human spirit. Albert Einstein once said he was enough of an artist to draw freely upon his imagination. Left to our own imagination, we tend to thrive, and art is part of this life-giving
Our blockbuster exhibition 100 Masters: Only in Canada, which ran from May to September, 2013, is just one example of what an exhibition can do for a community in the expression of the human spirit. Featuring 100 artworks borrowed from 30 museums across the country, and spanning 500 years of artmaking, the exhibition was the most successful in the WAG’s 100-year history, attracting over 60,000 visitors— and a few awards! On April 9 in Toronto, I had the honour of accepting the Canadian Museum Association’s (CMA) national award for Outstanding Achievement in Marketing for the 100 Masters exhibition. Also in April the 275-page illustrated publication accompanying the exhibition received the Manitoba Book Award’s Manuela Dias Book Design of the Year Award. In May, the WAG exhibition was announced as the runner-up for a Winnipeg Tourism Award of Distinction in Marketing. It was also the runnerup for the Winnipeg Free Press Entertainment Story of the Year, as voted by WFP readers, coming in second to the Paul McCartney concert at the new stadium in Winnipeg. Beyond the record attendance, school outreach, membership growth, huge revenues, and national media attention and honours for 100 Masters, what
was most rewarding for me was to see how the public responded to seeing and experiencing the original works of art. In an era filled with reproductions and replicas of all kinds in all places, it is a powerful reminder that people still want to see the real thing— masterworks created by men and women over the ages. As you read about the current and upcoming exhibitions and programs in this issue of myWAG, you’ll see that the WAG is at the heart of the communities we call Winnipeg and Manitoba. Being central to the cultural life of the city and province means being current, relevant and meaningful to the people, groups, and institutions—all the stakeholders—who make up each community. If I had to pick one exhibition that stands out as a project that truly personifies this enterprise of engagement and the notion of relevance, it would have to be 7: Professional Native Indian Artists Inc. Come to the WAG this summer and I think you’ll see what I’m talking about. To make this a little easier, at least for the youth around us, I am pleased to offer free gallery admission to youth 18 and under for the months of May and June.

One of Canada’s most important artist alliances, the Professional Native Indian Artists Inc. (PNIAI) made history by demanding recognition for its members as professional, contemporary artists. In the words of Alex Janvier, they set out to “change the world, the art world, for Natives of Canada.” Gathering informally in the early 1970s, the group pushed for the recognition of contemporary First Nations art at a time when Indigenous artists were routinely invalidated, marginalized, and excluded by the dominant art world. By challenging old constructs and stimulating a new way of thinking about the lives and art of First Nations people, they signaled a new course for the exhibition and reception of contemporary Indigenous art. By the end of 1972, the “Group of Seven,” Jackson Beardy, Eddy Cobiness, Alex Janvier, Norval Morrisseau, Daphne Odjig, Carl Ray, and Joseph Sanchez, constituted the first self-organized, formally autonomous First Nations artists’ advocacy collective in Canada. It takes courage to make work that differs from those before you and not assimilate into the mainstream art world. The visual impact of these works will hopefully reacquaint viewers with the excitement and newness of the images and styles which these seven artists produced—an excitement shared by the many artists who built on their artistic innovations. Focusing exclusively on that crucial decade during which the seven artists were active as a group, the 84 works included in this exhibition exemplify the range and diversity of work being produced in the 1970s. The exhibition considers their collective artistic impact as well as the distinctive styles and experimentation of the individual artists.

7 provides a glimpse at a vision that flourished despite the struggles these artists faced within the context of mainstream Canadian society. Given their far ranging impact, it is important to honour and recognize the efforts and contributions of these seven artists to the development of First Nations aesthetic production and to the history of Canadian art. The term “Indian” is contentious, a misnomer associated with colonial subjugation. Today, descendants of the original inhabitants of North America prefer to be referred to by their First Nation, band, or even clan names, in their language. Nevertheless, at various times Indigenous peoples have gathered under the umbrella of various English terms in order to have a collective political voice.

Inuit Fantastic Art May 31–October 12 • Gallery 5 • Curated by Darlene Coward Wight The theme for this exhibition was inspired by a sculpture competition in Povungnituk (now Puvirnituq) in 1967 and a subsequent exhibition in Winnipeg in 1972. In 1967 an art competition was held in Povungnituk, sponsored by visiting American anthropologist Dr. Nelson Graburn. Carvers had complained to Graburn that buyers only wanted them to create realistic subjects. The competition was organized to encourage carvers to create works of originality and imagination, independent of the usual commercial production, with cash prizes being offered. A number of carvers responded with carvings of a fantastic, even surreal nature. Puvirnituq carvers have continued to create these imaginative works over the years.

Intrigued by the results of the 1967 contest, George Swinton organized a catalogued exhibition titled Eskimo Fantastic Art at the University of Manitoba’s Gallery 1.1.1 in 1972. His exhibition title became associated thereafter with bizarre and surreal artworks. Swinton was an influential writer, collector, and teacher at the University of Manitoba School of Art. In his catalogue he noted that “the fantastic carvings which came out of this competition are not isolated stylistic freaks, but are part of old oral and visual traditions not only common to Povungnituk and the Canadian Arctic but indeed to the entire arctic region from Siberia to Greenland.” This observation is borne out by early sculptures created by Cape Dorset artists in the 1950s and 1960s, also included in the exhibition. Swinton’s statement is also true when considering the tupilaq tradition of Inuit from East Greenland. The tupilaq was a harmful spirit created by a shaman out of bones and skin, brought to life through magical chants and sent to kill one’s enemy. Danish inhabitants of Greenland wanted to know what these mysterious creatures looked like and carvers began to create them from their imagination using the ivory teeth of sperm whales. Several tupilaqs from the WAG collection are featured in this exhibition.
The fantastic and the surreal are associated with giving imagination free rein, without the conscious control of reason and convention, allowing the subconscious full play. This exhibition highlights work which exhibits these tendencies by several graphic artists from Baker Lake.

the winnipeg sketch club: a look back May 17–July 27 • Mezzanine Gallery • Curated by Andrew Kear
This year marks the one-hundredth anniversary of the Winnipeg Sketch Club (WSC), an organization that operated in close association with the Winnipeg Art Gallery when it first began. Drawing on the Gallery’s permanent collection, this exhibition pays tribute to the Sketch Club by featuring works by 25 of its leading and best known contributors, from L.L. FitzGerald to Clarence Tillenius, W.J. Phillips to Leo Mol, and Pauline Boutal to Tom Lovatt. The exhibition illustrates the great range of pursuits Sketch Club members were engaged in, and presents not only “sketches” but also sculptures, prints, and finished paintings. The Winnipeg Art Students’ Sketch Club, as it was initially known, was conceived in 1914 by Alexander Musgrove, the Winnipeg School of Art’s newly installed Principal who also served as the Sketch Club’s first President. At this time, membership was limited to students and faculty of the School. Weekly sketching sessions were held at the Industrial Bureau Building, home of what was then called the Winnipeg Museum of Fine Arts, which hosted the Club’s inaugural exhibition in 1916. From the very beginning, the WSC gave members the opportunity to work from the live model, and produce studies of nude and elaborately costumed figures. It went on to orchestrate outdoor sketching trips to sites throughout the city and beyond. Over the decades, Sketch Club members have documented Winnipeg’s changing skyline and used a variety of media to record countless city landmarks, many of which no longer exist. In 1920 the group’s membership broadened and grew to include academically unaffiliated artists from the community. Member-juries oversaw new admissions. Social gatherings became common, a resource library was amassed, and a development fund initiated and earmarked for the purchase of future studio quarters and equipment. In 1969 Winnipeg art collector John P. Crabb provided a space on Assiniboine Avenue which the WSC occupied rent-free until 1997. Now located on Eugenie Street, the Sketch Club continues to be an important resource for artists, offering the means to practice and improve technique, exhibit work, discuss ideas, and socialize.

The very name Worcester immediately conjures up impressions of excellence in porcelain production. Established in 1751, it remains today an important site of ceramic production. Its ceramic history began in pre-Roman times, but it truly became significant in the mid-18th century when physician Dr. John Wall and apothecary William Davis, alongside 13 other partners, founded a factory at Warmstry House on the banks of the River Severn. The group, led by Dr. Wall, purchased the secrets of porcelain from the Bristol Porcelain Works in 1752, as well as the raw materials and moulds. They transferred the workforce from Bristol to Worcester. This purchase allowed the new factory at Worcester to get a head start on other potteries as it avoided the typical obstacles faced by companies starting from the ground-up, and was able to produce quality products from the very beginning. Worcester production is divided into numerous periods, named largely after the owner/ operators of the pottery. The earliest period, the Dr. Wall period (1751-1783) incorporated soapstone into the formula of the paste, producing a fine, soft-paste porecelain resistant to cracking or crazing when used to hold hot liquids, thus proving very popular for teawares. The 1760s show market influence of Asian ceramics, and the employment of the transferprinting technique served to really increase market opportunities. In 1789, under the banner of Davis & Flight, or simply Flight, (1783-1792) the pottery was granted the Royal Warrant. With the addition of a new partner, Martin Barr, in 1792 the Davis & Flight factory became known by the name Flight & Barr (1792-1807) and subsequently Barr, Flight & Barr (1807-1813) and Flight, Barr & Barr (1813-1840). During these periods, the quality of porcelain produced reached a highpoint. The painting, enamelling, and gilding rivalled the best in Europe and products included “Japan” patterns, Regency motifs (feather, shell, and bird), as well as hand-painted landscape panels set within coloured grounds. The two leading Worcester-based factories Flight, Barr & Barr and Chamberlains merged in 1840 to become Chamberlain & Co. It remained so until 1852 when the partnership Kerr & Binns purchased the concern. In 1862 a joint stock company called the Worcester Royal Porcelain Co. took control and has headed the factory since. Generally known as Royal Worcester, the pottery has retained high acclaim and a strong international reputation throughout the 20th century and into the 21st. The WAG is fortunate to have a splendid collection of British porcelain from the 18th and 19th centuries. This is, indeed, the backbone of its Decorative Arts collection. Within this, Worcester examples form the largest representation of a single factory. This exhibition will explore the rich breadth of the WAG’s collection of Worcester and Chamberlain porcelain, from early mid-eighteenth century works to 20th century production. Drawing on important collections donated to the WAG—the Ruby Ashdown Collection and the Evison Collection—the history of this significant British pottery will be illustrated.

Lynne Cohen: Between Something and Nothing Co-organized by the National Gallery of Canada NGC@WAG and the Winnipeg Art Gallery
Related Programs Public Opening Friday, May 9, 7-10pm
12 | SPRING2014
Continuing exhibition: April 12–August 18 • Gallery 6 • Curated by Paul Butler
This exhibition traces the subtle evolution of Lynne Cohen’s 40-year investigation of interior ‘readymade’ spaces. From her black and white portraits of domestic and public spaces of the 70s, to the training centres and social engineering laboratories of the 80s, to her eventual use of colour with the Spa series from the late 90s, Cohen’s found environments explore psychological, sociological, intellectual, and political artifice. This exhibition is the first comprehensive show of Lynne Cohen’s work presented in Western Canada. The 21 works borrowed from the NGC will be augmented with works from the WAG’s collection and recent work from the artist’s collection. Capturing the world “much more than less” as she finds it, Cohen describes her work as probing “the boundaries between the found and the constructed, the absurd and the deadly serious, and the animate and the inert.” Present are suggestions of the human body—dummies, diagrams, and silhouettes—but never actual people. With her larger, more recent work, Cohen allows the viewer the sense of entering the environments themselves. Throughout the work, there are references to Pop, minimal and conceptual artists like Jasper Johns, Joseph Beuys, and Richard Hamilton. Underneath Cohen’s seemingly banal subject matter are themes of irony, surveillance, and humour as well as social and political criticism. This is the space where her photography hovers between something and nothing.
Born in Racine, Wisconsin, Lynne Cohen was educated in printmaking and sculpture at the University of Wisconsin, and at Eastern Michigan University. She studied for a year at the Slade School of Fine Art in London. Since 1973 Cohen has lived and worked in Canada, initially in Ottawa where she taught at the University of Ottawa (1974-2005) and from 2003 in Montreal, where she currently resides. Cohen has exhibited widely and held artist’s residencies across North America and Europe. In 2005 she was the recipient of the Governor General’s Award in Visual and Media Arts and was the first recipient of the Scotiabank Photography Award.
"...This is the real world. There is truth in these images, at least I certainly hope so. I choose to work in the First World; I never work in the so-called Second or Third Worlds. My heart is in the Third World, but I don’t make work there, I wouldn’t know how. For me it’s the hilarious parts of the First World— the layers of social class and privilege—that tell the truth. And I’m interested in spaces that are a little off, in how they can look on and off at the same time.

My works are always filled with contradictions. They depict all of these readymade installations, and you’d think this image couldn’t be true; it has to have been made by an artist with a wry sensibility and black humour.”

Micah Lexier: This, That, Those
Continuing exhibition: April 19–August 4 • Gallery 3 • Curated by Paul Butler With This, That, Those, Micah Lexier has worked with Paul Butler, WAG Curator of Contemporary Art, to create an installation where a constellation of artworks—both found and made—are in dialogue with each other. The exhibition reflects on the creative process of making and presenting art, and—like all of Lexier’s work—is not only a portrait of the artist, but of his practice as well. The following excerpt is from an email conversation between Micah Lexier and Paul Butler. The entire interview will be made available in the exhibition itself as a free limited print edition. PB: What were your thoughts behind the exhibition title This, That, Those? ML: We talked about building the WAG exhibition around my video This One, That One, so I wanted the title to reference that artwork without actually mentioning it by name. I also like how the title conjures up an image of someone literally pointing to a number of things or groupings of things, which is what we are doing in this show. A title is often the first thing that a viewer encounters about an exhibition, so I like to get it right. It is a significant opportunity to indicate something about what is in the exhibition or about the sensibility behind the exhibition. But a title is not just for the viewer. It’s as much for the curator and me—to be used as a kind of guide for us in building the exhibition. PB: Knowing know how much attention you give to every detail in your practice and the consideration involved in your work, one might assume you to be a control freak. But the truth is you love to collaborate on many levels not only with curators, artists, and audience (and their ideas)—but in regards to the art itself.. Can you talk about your video projection This One, That One? Am I right to assume you are arranging found objects in the video? ML: The fact that everything in the video is found is a big part of the charm of that piece. The video consists of a number of vignettes of me responding to all these things, most noticeably pieces of cardboard. I have been collecting cardboard boxes off the street for at least a dozen years, often not knowing why I am bringing them into my home. Some of them have made their way into various vitrine displays, but This One, That One is the first project to really show off the depth of my collection. I collect a wide variety of images that are printed on cardboard boxes and it takes years to amass a substantial collection. An artwork like this could only have been made by digging into a rich and vast archive. The video looks really simple, like I just threw it together–and it is supposed to look effortless, but in fact it is a very choreographed and highly edited production made in collaboration with a cinematographer, lighting person, and editor. I have learned that my strength is not so much in generating, but in responding, so I try to put myself in as many situations as I can where I get to respond. That is one reason why I like to collaborate, as I get to respond to another person’s energy.
Micah Lexier is a Winnipeg-born artist, now living in Toronto, with a diverse art practice that blurs the distinctions between artist and curator. He has a deep interest in measurement, order, numbers, and the kinds of casual marks we make in everyday life, and in the presentation of these marks. Lexier was educated at the University of Manitoba (BFA, 1982) and the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design (MFA, 1984). He has had over 100 solo exhibitions, participated in over 200 group exhibitions, and produced a dozen permanent public commissions. This past fall, Lexier’s work was celebrated by The Power Plant (Toronto) with a fifteen-year survey exhibition of his work. Lexier’s work is in numerous public and corporate collections including the British Museum (London, England), the Contemporary Art Gallery (Sydney, Australia), the National Gallery of Canada (Ottawa), and the Art Gallery of Ontario (Toronto).

Masterworks from Bea September 27–January 25 • Galleries 7, 8, 9 Masterworks from the Beaverbrook Art Gallery brings an uncompromising selection of 75 exceptional paintings to Winnipeg. These works form part of one of North America’s unparalleled art collections originally amassed in the mid-20th century by the Canadian-born international businessman, media mogul, and confidante of the rich and famous, William Maxwell Aitken (aka Lord Beaverbrook). Thomas Gainsborough, Joshua Reynolds, and George Romney—heavyweights of 18th century British portraiture—are well represented, as are Victorian dynamos like J.M.W. Turner, James Tissot, and Augustus John, some choice Impressionist works, and a captivating early painting by that giant of contemporary realism, Lucien Freud, the only
averbrook Art Gallery painting by the British artist in a Canadian public collection. Canadian artists Emily Carr, J.W. Morrice, Tom Thomson, and Lawren Harris hold their own on this international stage. Masterworks from the Beaverbrook Art Gallery also marks the first time major works by the mercurial Salvador Dali will be publically displayed in Winnipeg. In scale and substance, three paintings by this Spanish Surrealist—including the companion portraits of Aiken’s friend and business associate Sir James Dunn and Dunn’s third wife, as well as Santiago El Grande—form the exhibition’s unquestionable centrepiece. A magisterial four-meter high depiction of the patron saint of Spain rising from the ocean on a white horse, Santiago El Grande is widely considered one of Dali’s most accomplished works.

The Beaverbrook Art Gallery was founded by William Maxwell Aitken, Lord Beaverbrook, in his birthplace, New Brunswick. The gallery boasts the most eclectic and valuable art collection in Atlantic Canada, including important Dali works and one of the finest and most significant holdings of British art in North America.

THE DRAMA OF LORD BEAVERBROOK AND HIS MASTERWORKS
A Dali Masterwork Santiago El Grande is one of only 20 masterworks the artist produced in his lifetime and a centrepiece of the Beaverbrook Art Gallery. Literally sitting at the foot of this immense Dali, you get the 3-D effect of Saint James and his charging horse. Premiering at the World’s Fair in 1958, it was destined to be hung as an altarpiece in Spain. It ended up gracing Lord Beaverbrook’s collection in Canada – a rumoured decision made by the artist after an opportune ride in a Dunn elevator, leading to the sale of the painting to Lady Dunn, confidant of Lord Beaverbrook. Of note is the figure in the bottom right—Gala, his wife and muse as well as the minuscule figure at bottom, a self-portrait of Dali as a young boy. 18 | SPRING2014
Joseph Mallord William Turner’s painting, The Fountain of Indolence, is often referred to as a puzzle. At first glance it is a landscape reminiscent of his tours of Italy in 1819-1820. However, there is the issue of the people, based on pilgrims in the poem Castle of Indolence by poet James Thompson. In the painting they have been lured into the Castle of Indolence and are now frolicking in the nude, certainly giving credence to the title. Although the painting was renamed in 1839 as The Fountain of Fallacy, it eventually reverted without explanation to The Fountain of Indolence. While questions remain, there has always been agreement on the genius of Turner's work.
Gainsborough Did It How did Lieutenant Colonel Edmund Nugent end up in Canada, well his portrait anyway? Lord Beaverbrook spirited away this masterwork by one of the great portrait painters of the 18th century, despite British National Gallery attempts to stop him. Art critic for the London Morning Post, James Greig wrote in 1929, “This is one of the most brilliant full-length portraits ever painted by Gainsborough… The Director of the National Gallery ought to see this portrait and form forces with the National Art Collection Fund in an effort to prevent it from leaving England.” Lord Beaverbrook prevailed.
Lord Beaverbrook or just Max The Beaverbrook Art Gallery describes Lord Beaverbrook as a “multi-millionaire business tycoon, pushy newspaper publisher, shrewd politician, master propagandist, published author, personal confidant of Sir Winston Churchill, and great philanthropist…” Historian Michael Bliss wrote that he was “a salesman-speculator, one of a breed of fast-talking, risktaking business middlemen only slightly above real estate dealers then and used car salesman today.” Historian A.J.P. Taylor described him as “an indescribably wicked, evil man.” And yet he had an almost unparalleled passion for art that is reflected in this magnificent collection.

Dali Up Close September 27–January 25 • Gallery 6 • Curated by Andrew Kerr Dali Up Close asks audiences to consider what it was that made Salvador Dali the complex paragon of modern art he is remembered as today. Was it his accomplished draughtsmanship, his disturbing penchant for surreal juxtaposition, a combination of idiosyncratic personality and savvy selfpromotion, or some mixture of it all? The exhibition will feature a number of definitive works, including The Madonna of Port Lligat, on loan from Milwaukee’s Haggerty Museum of Art. Completed in 1948, this oil speaks to Dali’s deep appreciation for Renaissance masters like Piero della Francesca and Raphael, signalling the artist’s transition from Surrealism toward a version of Neo-Classicism, what he called his “Nuclear Mysticism” period. Dali Up Close will also feature a selection of over 24 gelatin silver prints of Dali taken in collaboration with the well-known American photographer Philippe Halsman in the late 1940s and early 1950s, including perhaps the most celebrated Dalí Atomicus. The photographs reveal the man behind the paintings to be just as mercurial, provocative, and exacting as the art he created. A combination of Halsman’s photomontage wizardry and Dali’s honed public image—his trademark moustache—the images anticipate both the Pop and contemporary Performance art that emerged a decade later.

Philippe Halsman (1906-1979) Halsman was born in Riga, Latvia and began his photographic career in Paris. In 1934 he opened a portrait studio in Montparnasse, where he photographed many well-known artists and writers. Part of the great exodus of artists and intellectuals who fled the Nazis, Halsman arrived in the United States with his young family in 1940, having obtained an emergency visa through the intervention of Albert Einstein. Halsman’s prolific career in America over the next 30 years included reportage and covers for every major American magazine. Halsman began a thirty-seven year collaboration with Salvador Dali in 1941 which resulted in a stream of unusual “photographs of ideas,” including “Dali Atomicus” and the “Dali’s Mustache” series. In the early 1950s, Halsman began to ask his subjects to jump for his camera at the conclusion of each sitting. These uniquely witty and energetic images have become an important part of his photographic legacy. SOURCE: Phillippe Halsman Archive website, philippehalsman.com

@WAG INUIT ART CENTRE
Sanaugait (made by hand)
In early October 2012, the Inuit Art Centre (IAC) Task Force gathered at the WAG to offer input and advice related to the development of the Inuit Art Centre. The conversation and deliberations were summarized in a report from the IAC Task Force and included four guiding principles for the project: sanaugait (made by hand), nunamit (from the land), qaggiq (a gathering place), and inuniq (who we are).
This is the first in a series of features introducing the Winnipeg Art Gallery’s preeminent collection of Inuit art, today exceeding 13,000 works and representing 50 years of connection to the Arctic.
The first of these concepts is sanaugait (san-ow-gate) and, the IAC Task Force asked WAG Curator of Inuit Art Dr. Darlene Coward Wight to give form to this concept by referencing one of the works from the WAG’s Inuit collection. She selected Woman Showing a Drawing by Cape Dorset artist Oviloo Tunnillie to illustrate sanaugait.
Oviloo Tunnillie, 1989. Photo: Darlene Wight
Oviloo Tunnillie (b. 1949) is one of the most respected Inuit sculptors working today. Her first sculptures were made while she was a teenager in Cape Dorset while watching her father, Toonoo, carve. She has worked actively for over forty years, enjoying international success since the 1980s. Tunnillie was one of the first Inuit artists to create autobiographical artworks. Many of her sculptures explore personal themes such as her childhood experience dealing with tuberculosis in a southern sanatorium, the death of one of her children, and her often arduous work as a female artist creating sculpture from the south Baffin Island serpentinite stone. Tunnillie has stated,
“Stories are told through art, and I decided that I can tell a story about myself using art.” In Woman Showing a Drawing she creates a graceful self-portrait, but rather than showing herself carving, she proudly holds a drawing by her mother, Sheokjuk Toonoo, an eloquent statement on the ties between artists within the same family.

HAVE FUN! ART CLASSES AT THE WAG
Meet our new WAG Mascot! My parents are sled dogs in Cape Dorset and I have lots of fun playing with my fellow puppies. When it’s really cold in winter I get to go inside and play with my human family. Best of all the children love to play with me because I’m super fluffy and love to roll around and like to act like a bear. That’s how I got my name Nanook which means bear. But I’m also a very curious puppy. Sometimes that gets me into trouble, but this time my curiosity led me to Winnipeg!

Watch for the WAG tent at the following summer festivals including: • Folk Fest • Kids Fest • Aboriginal Day Live • Canada Day at The Forks • The Winnipeg Fringe Festival • North End Community Picnic in the Park • Many Fest Cyclovia
and see it! I love doing art, although sometimes I’m very messy and my mom has to lick me for hours to clean me up. I heard that the WAG Studio has classes where you get to do print-making and create sculptures, and I wanted to join in the fun. So now I’m here in Winnipeg with Darlene in the Inuit Art vault where I am surrounded by thousands of pieces of sculptures that remind me of home. I’m looking forward to meeting all of you at summer art camp, summer festivals, Family Sunday, and all the other events in and around Winnipeg where you will find WAG staff. Be sure to come up, say hello, and give me a high five! Darlene goes back and forth to the North all the time so I can go visit my family and tell great stories about the adventures I’ve been on.
My human family use funny tools to carve stone to create really amazing figures of polar bears, walruses, and even sometimes of me! I overheard them talking with this nice lady from the WAG, Darlene, and she said she was bringing their sculpture of me on an airplane all the way south to Winnipeg. I was so excited about the thought of all those people seeing a sculpture of me I was wiggling and licking her hands hoping she’d think to take me along. And so she did! She offered to bring me on a trip all the way to Winnipeg. I learned that the WAG had the world’s largest collection of Inuit art like the ones my human family makes and I was just so excited to come MyWAG | 25

An exhibition of new work by Michel Saint Hilaire May 23-June 15 Opening Reception May 23, 6-9pm Michel Saint Hilaire, a Winnipeg-based fine artist writes, “Music, rhythms and the pulse of life around me inspire my work,” begins Saint Hilaire, “sometimes the lines channel the music I am listening to, sometimes they are sound and travel patterns from traffic around my studio, sometimes the lines box me in, sometimes they keep me out… sometimes they connect me directly to the viewer. They are very exciting to execute, I don’t plan them, they wait, and build, and I let them happen. They explode forward in instinctual and aggressive brush strokes.”

GALLERY SHOP PRESENTS
FAR-OUT JUNE 19–JULY 27 In celebration of 7:PNIAI, the Gallery Shop brings you a sales exhibition of works by Canadian Aboriginal Artists. CYRIL ASSINIBOINE
Terry McCue. Untitled “‘Tobacco’ Rider” watercolour on paper, 30 x 22 in Alex Janvier. Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal, 2013, watercolor, 18 in
Many of the works in this show were selected from the collection at the Wah-sa Gallery which opened in 1976 when Gary Sherbain purchased the gallery from original owner Daphne Odjig and her husband, Chester Beavon. Continuing in the tradition initiated by Odjig, the Wah-sa Gallery highlights the works of Canadian Woodland Aboriginal artists. Odjig suggested the Ojibway term Wahsa; which literally translates to “far away” but in the vernacular of the mid-seventies means “far-out.” In addition, original PNIAI artists Alex Janvier and Joseph Sanchez works will be included in Far-Out.
Opening reception June 19, 6-9pm
The popular WAG Home Tour returns to the Crescentwood, River Heights, and Tuxedo neighbourhoods this fall. The 2014 tour will feature some of Winnipeg’s most architecturally significant residences, all designed by local architects.
