Almost Black and White

January 7 to February 14, 2014
Portage & District Arts Centre, Portage la Prairie
Almost Black and White is a photography exhibit by Stan Weibe. While Stan has wielded his camera in 'exciting' places like Brazil and the Rocky Mountains, and has shot big game such as humpback whales in Mexico and elephant seals in California, his vision is evolving and recently he has been shifting to the monochromatic world of black and white. Since he is not fully there yet he has been inspired to create this new gallery show.

God's Nature

January 2 to 30, 2014
Watson Art Centre, Dauphin
God’s Nature is a stunning compilation of photographs taken by Cliff Doan. Cliff was born in Swan River Valley and raised in Flin Flon. At 78 he’s now retired from many occupations including road construction, semi-truck driver, taxi driver, auto mechanic, vacuum and small motor repairman. He now has the time to pursue his love of photographing nature, to quad the mountains and valleys for source material, and practice his drawing and painting.
