Libations, Lollipops, and Lines of Longitude

"Libations, Lollipops, and Lines of Longitude" is the title of the current exhibition in the gallery. It's a solo exhibition of paintings full of candy colour and whimsy by gallery artist Angela Morgan.

"All good women should have, at the very least, a working
knowledge of common household poisons",

"Angela Morgan’s work celebrates humanity through the use of colour, pattern and line. Her human figures express the poses of life, the jubilation of dance, the contemplation of parenthood, and the melancholy of summer’s end. Colours fuse and meld to achieve gesture, transforming abstract images into living moments." via

"the obvious benefits of joining the circus"

Angela, from Fernie, B.C., flew half way across the country to join us on Friday April 8th for the opening reception. With a personality as vibrant as her paintings, collectors enjoyed meeting Angela and hearing all about her inspiration and painting process.

The gallery is so colourful right now! I can't help smiling when I look at Angela Morgan's work. Libations, Lollipops, and Lines of Longitude is on display in the gallery until April 23rd. If you live in Winnipeg, please visit us for a smile soon. View more paintings by Angela Morgan here.

Does Angela's work bring a smile to your face? What memories or happy emotions does it evoke for you?

Literally Breathtaking...

Earth Day is coming up and I could not wait to share the most breathtaking video I've ever seen! 

Norwegian landscape photographer Terje Sorgjerd creates amazing time-lapse photographic videos. "The Mountain" showcases some of the most beautiful and breathtaking sites this planet has to offer.

"This was filmed between 4th and 11th April 2011. I had the pleasure of visiting El Teide. Spain´s highest mountain @(3715m) is one of the best places in the world to photograph the stars and is also the location of Teide Observatories, considered to be one of the world´s best observatories.

The goal was to capture the beautiful Milky Way galaxy along with one of the most amazing mountains I know El Teide. I have to say this was one of the most exhausting trips I have done. There was a lot of hiking at high altitudes and probably less than 10 hours of sleep in total for the whole week. Having been here 10-11 times before I had a long list of must-see locations I wanted to capture for this movie, but I am still not 100% used to carrying around so much gear required for time-lapse movies."

A few more stunning videos by Terje Sorgjerd are "The Market", "The Aurora", "Glimpse of Norway" and "The Southwest".

There are no words to describe how much these videos moved me! This guy is an amazing artist!
