OUTSIDE THE BOX: MEMBERS' EXHIBITIONS

The AGR has a long history of working with and supporting local artists and guilds since its inception as an experimental satellite project of the Norman MacKenzie Gallery in 1974. The AGR continues to value its founding mission of reaching new audiences and programming work by local and regional artists.

Gerri Ann Siwek

Return to The Garden

August 4 - September 29, 2021

Artist's Statement

No matter how far I venture off or wander in my art making, I always seem to return to the garden. The garden can appear as a complex earthly paradise or Eden. Other times, it can become an endeavour of toil with uninvited visitors. The garden is like a microcosm of the universe, containing and attracting a variety of species and organisms. All living things come together to create a biodiversity that makes the garden a good place. In these works, I explore gardens in various habitats: urban, prairie, grassland and farm. Many of the gardens I visit are in my own neighbourhood. I begin with drawing and enhance with watercolour and encaustic. Encaustic, molten beeswax and resin acts like a preservative of the paper and the painted image. I feel that the encaustic process also emulates the preservation of the garden and all of its diversity.

 

Gerri Ann Siwek is a Regina-based visual artist and arts educator. Working in mixed media and encaustic painting, Siwek explores themes of encounters with Nature and the Supernatural. She studied at the Ontario College of Art and Design, the Art Students League of New York and the University of Regina. She has taught workshops and exhibited throughout Canada and internationally. Her works of art are included in numerous private and public collections and can be viewed at www.gasiwek.ca.

Michael Gronnerud

I Am Completely Serious

August 4 - September 29, 2021

Michael Gronnerud, also known as @sourmilk, has been illustrating for the last 5 years. Before this, Gronnerud was a professional writer and designer for 15 years. He has written and published 3 book titles. Drawing and designing original books has been the foundation from which this artwork developed. Gronnerud currently writes and publishes the 'zine, Art/Underground, which is designed and produced for a Vancouver-based art gallery. Humour and word play are two main pillars of this publication. As it is a public platform representing fine art, this requires balance.

 

Recently, he has had success in creating a wide range of funny buttons and enamel pins, some of which have been featured on the Instagram page "Pinlord". He is currently finishing work on an original comedy book, Palmsvale. His work has also been featured in the International magazine, Pictoria.

Gronnerud identifies with skateboard culture after having been a ‘boarder’ for most of his life. He has also designed and hand-built skateboards in his own wood-shop under the brand name Illecill. In addition to design, woodworking has become one of his main interests.
