New Exhibits Open at AGSM

This tonight at 7:30pm, the Art Gallery of Southwestern Manitoba will be hosting opening receptions for two exhibits. The first is Brandon’s own Chris Reid whose collection I like to believe I am telling the truth morphs familiar prairie settings into surreal narratives imbued with Ukrainian folklore, African heritage, and anthropomorphized inanimate objects and animals.

Returning the audience to the War of 1812, the second exhibit is Howie Tsui’s Friendly Fire which explores the health and medicine of the early 19th century. Investigating the manipulative relationship between the British and Aboriginal, the sculpture Ghastly Dancing Skeletons is a piece that will surely captivate inquiring minds.
