Fascinating Rhythm

Fascinating Rhythm, Acrylic on canvas, gel medium, oil pen, 38 x 49, framed, 2019, value $4,150 – Shirley Elias

Artist statement: Artist Shirley Elias is known for delivering a vibrant palette, at the piano and on canvas. Her multi-faceted career has leapt from premiering piano concertos at the WSO’s New Music Festival, to now represented by galleries across Canada. Shirley’s artwork can be found in 8 countries, in private and corporate collections, and she is currently on piano faculty at Canadian Mennonite University.

The Livingstone Phenomenon

The Livingstone Phenomenon, Acrylic and mixed media on gallery canvas, unframed, 24”x24” – Value $2,250 – Ludolf Grollé

Artist statement: As visual artists, we are on an infinite adventure to pursue self-expression and step into the endless journey to find our unique creative process. Through this creative struggle, our personalities echo and it is inevitable that in each work of art that we strive to create, we invevitably leave a piece of ourselves.

Reflecting on Life 3 – Hello World

Reflecting on Life 3 – Hello World, Oil on canvas, 35″ x 27.5″, 2015, Value $ 995, Pat McCullough

Artist Statement – 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.


Springtime on Albert Street

Springtime on Albert Street – Sunshine after the Rain, limited edition print, 17/25, hand signed and embossed, archival inks on high quality paper and framed using conservation glass for additional UV protection – Value $575, Manny Schulz

Artist statement: The scene captures a view of Albert Street in Winnipeg’s historic Warehouse District. The painting, with the emergence of new green leaves, depicts the welcome return of spring to the urban landscape, along with the sunshine and reflections that follow a period of rain.

Flower vase

Kathrynne Koop – Flower Vase, Ceramic, Value $250

Artist Statement – Clay captivated my interest over 35 years ago. The act of taking a soft and malleable material and transforming it into something permanent has fueled my passion. Once the work is constructed and initially fired to set the clay, I apply layers of glaze which produce a richness and depth to the surface. When completed, each piece is ready to take on a life of its own, to be seen, to be felt, to be used, and to be contemplated.

Airfare for two to any major Canadian city – value $750

 

Inn at the Forks – 10 – $100 Spa Certificates from Inn at the Forks

WSO Concert Experience – 4 Flex-4 Concert Packages valued at $756 each and 28 draws for Concert Tickets for Two valued at $226 each.
