The province’s newest art gallery is presenting a special show in early November that features the extraordinary works of two Manitoba artists.
Bulrushes Gallery, located three kilometres west of Winnipeg Beach, opened its doors this past June and has quickly become a favorite destination in the Interlake.
On Sat. Nov. 7, from noon to 5 p.m., Bulrushes will offer a special one-day exhibit showcasing the works of Interlake artist Pearl Bainbridge-Edwards van Muijen and Winnipeg Glass artist Wendy Seversen.
“You have such a precious treasure there,” said a recent visitor to the gallery. “I’m still re-running snapshots in my mind of what I saw and the feeling that I got there. Thank you for sharing your wonderful gift.”
As the Gallery’s Curator, I am pleased to be a part of the Interlake’s vibrant arts community and to make fine art exciting and truly accessible.
Bulrushes specializes in reintroducing people to some of Manitoba’s and Canada’s best artists; some of these artists were once well known and highly regarded years ago but are now often forgotten.
We are also excited to introduce Manitobans to new and emerging artists as well as to those from our rich artistic past.
The special one-day exhibit featuring the work of Pearl Bainbridge-Edwards van Muijen and Wendy Seversen is an exciting event many gallery patrons are looking forward to.
Ms. Bainbridge-Edwards van Muijen is a first generation Canadian, who immigrated to Canada from the Netherlands in 1968.
Earning a diploma in Advertising Art from Red River Community College, Bainbridge-Edwards van Muijenalso studied under the direction of well-known Manitoba artist Nikola Bjelajac at the Forum Art Institute.
Bainbridge-Edwards van Muijen is a versatile artist who makes use of multiple mediums including acrylic on canvas, watercolour on paper, as well as mono prints and oil on wood.
Her work is influenced by the pattern and form found in Asian art, European mid-nineteenth century modern art and Middle Eastern art and culture.
Wendy Seversen creates stunning pieces of art glass. Her glass creations trap light in captured bubbles, and mirror the natural beauty found in erosion and decay. Her work evokes a sensation of movement in a palette of natural oxides and metals.
We hope people will join us for this extraordinary exhibition of two gifted and inspirational artists. Visitors can also enjoy the beautiful works by other talented artists and the incredible rediscovered works of art that can be found in the gallery.
