Naomi Gerrard

Health issues, family issues and children’s activities influence my art because of my own family life as a mother and grandmother and my job as a nurse. I am fascinated with the human figure and the health of our environment.

I am mesmerized by colour, pure and vibrant, subtle colours, colour relationships, earth tones and colour psychology. Texture also enthralls me thus my art production is usually mixed media. I’ve enjoyed making paper and imbedding materials into it then using that in my mixed media art.

The following artists influence my art: Emily Carr because of her wonderful visual expression of nature, Mary Cassatt because of her gentle depictions of family life, Kathe Kollwitz because of her determination to show us real life in her time from a woman’s point of view and Daphne Odjig because of her figurative art and vibrant colours showing us her aboriginal, female point of view.

Olga Krahn

Olga Krahn grew up in the rural community of Kronstahl, Manitoba where her love for the Canadian prairies was nurtured on the family farm. Her interest in art began in childhood and by fourteen had settled in oils as her medium of choice. As a youth she painted landscapes around the area, then progressed to include farm activities.

More recently, she has been inspired by family and friends around and has captured portraits on canvas. Golden wheat fields, round bales, and immense prairie skies are also favourite subjects. Krahn has developed a style invoking
the viewer, for a deeper longing to make our world a better place to live. She is also skilled at capturing the light of the prairie landscape and transposing to the canvas the intense colors of summer and autumn, as well as the more subtle shadings of our western winters.

During high school, Krahn completed a correspondence course from Minneapolis, and in 1975 basic drawing skills by Michael Young, giving her a new awareness of light, which greatly influenced her painting style. Krahn became a graphic artist at Friesen printers, during the time also attending Red River Community College in the graphic arts program.

In 1978 she became a full time graphic artist. Krahn has created many large billboards and designed many commercial books, brochures and calendars. Her work is displayed in Altona Art Gallery, Pembina Hills Art Gallery, and Winkler Art Gallery. She also is participant of Pembina Valley Studio Tour, Southern Manitoba since 2012.

Pat McCullough

“Life, like a reflection, is fragile. Our experiences change depending on our point of view, our attitude, how we see the world. Hard edges become organic, straight lines curve, reality becomes imagination. Life is softer, more gentle.

These abstract paintings, based on photographs of reflective surfaces I have taken, are deliberately non-specific. This allows them to be interpreted in many different ways, possibly landscapes, figures, animals or birds. But I deliberately leave it up to the viewer to experience them. For me, they are internal reflections on life. And it is different for each viewer.”

Pat McCullough is an abstract painter currently working in oils. She began watercolour painting in 1995, studying under Leona Brown, switched to acrylics in 2006 under Milos Milidrag, and has been mentored by Libby Weir, George Glenn, David Garneau and Michael Boss at the annual Arts West Retreat at Clear Lake. Since 2012 she has been primarily working in oils. Her work has developed over the years to its current style of hard edges with emphasis on shape, line and colour. She is represented by Soul Gallery in Winnipeg.

Pat is Publicity Chair of the Manitoba Society of Artists and Membership/Volunteer Liaison Co-Chair of the Associates of the Winnipeg Art Gallery. She is on the executive of both organizations. She is a member of the Group of 8 Artist Salon and has exhibited her work throughout Manitoba, both in solo shows and group shows. She lives in Winnipeg.

Bonnie Taylor

Winnipeg born from homesteader stock, I’ve lived my life moving from province to province, across the ocean and back, a lifelong learner open to new friends, new skills, and always ready to move on.  Although I celebrate that nothing abides, wherever I live I feel rooted forever.

 

After studies in art history and a career in lighting sales, my artistic background is self directed, with formal training and inspiration via workshops and mentoring.  My creative process usually begins by noticing some interesting line or contrast that is suggestive of something or other, then mulling over the possibilities until settling into the theme of the work.  My interests are to depict the energetic tension between line and colour. 

 

Subjects are eclectic, usually interpreted as fauvism abstract expressionism, and informed by research, social contact, attending workshops, exhibiting, and delivering art history lectures.  I am a member of Charleswood Art Group & Local Colour Art Group.  As an elected member of the Manitoba Society of Artists. I organize their art history conferences, and for 6 years have chaired Manitoba’s Open Juried Competition and Exhibition.  I also enjoy serving as a Docent for the Winnipeg Art Gallery.
