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.

Reflecting on Life 3 – Hello World

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.
