Kelly Ruth is a painter and textile artist. an emerging artist having spent a decade employed as the dyer/painter for the Royal Winnipeg Ballet’s wardrobe department. Through working alongside many world-class artists during this period she learned much of what she has applied to her career as a painter, concentrating on painting and working with textile dyes. She continues to use dye work in her one of a kind clothing line, which she has developed in relationship to her paintings. In the past couple of years she has been dying linens, which she uses as the ground for her paintings. Her work deals with her personal navigation through a world that she feels at odds with. In an attempt to come to terms with the reality around her she creates a new landscape with characters, who seek truth amongst the rubble and desolation of a world gone awry.
Rosemary Dzus' work involves personal narrative, secrets and memory. The paintings begin with an image or memory in mind, and an layer of acrylic paint evolves in response to that stimulus. Graphite follows, with the addition of ink, acrylic and/or paper/photo collage according to the creative arc of the image.
Each night the Peanuts gather they play a series of drawing games which stimulate both their imaginations and their subconscious. Of these drawing games there is one in particular which reigns most popular and has become the signature of the group. The game is known as "Telephone" which is played by having each artist write a word or phrase on the first page of a booklet. The booklet is then passed to a neighbouring artist who interprets the word or phrase with a drawing. This drawing is then passed and a word or phrase is written about it. this cycle continues until a booklet is filled or gone full circle. Each booklet is then presented to the group.

Mathew Bishop and Tavis Walker have been collaborating since 2007 as MORETREES. Their work explores the idea of the sketchbook as an art medium in and of itself and together they have produced several books filled with elaborate collaborative drawings. They have also begun collaborating in other forms such as stand alone images on canvas.
This exhibit of artworks on, or incorporating, letter size paper seeks to explore the the relationship between empire and communication. The most common size of paper in North America is 8.5"x11". While it is roughly equivalent to the ISO standard of A4, it possesses none of the advantages of the ISO 216 paper sizes. "Letter" size paper is an arbitrary standard whose origins are unknown. While a separate standard size once existed for U.S. government documents, it was abandoned in 1980 when the Reagan administration adopted letter size as a standard.- solely because it made photocopying easier.
"SOS" is a site-specific light project installed in various empty buildings in and around the downtown Winnipeg area by local artist Liz Garlicki. The work consists of boards with red LED lights in the form of hearts silently blinking Morse code messages. The LED panel blinks a plea that might have come from a jilted lover: “Why are you leaving me?”, “ What did I do wrong?” “What can I do to make you stay?”. The heart shape being used in this project is sentimental; its relationship to advertising and symbolic meaning is widespread. Having this heart placed visibly in the window is meant to be a literal representation of the life of the building itself.
