Colour with a “U”

Colour with a “U” Too and Capturing Our Visions of Isolation Daily (C.O.V.I.D.) by TFAM

November 25, 2021 – January 9, 2022

Colour with a U is a juried exhibition of 42 art quilts from across Canada.

These artists have reflected on the theme of diversity and inclusion to give “colourful” representations of our Canadian cultural identity. Each offers an individual perspective on how we as Canadians see ourselves in our social, historical, and physical landscape.

This body of work highlights a wide variety of mediums, techniques, and approaches to quilt making!

The Buhler Gallery is proud to present Capturing Our Visions of Isolation Daily (C.O.V.I.D.) by Textile and Fibre Artists of Manitoba.

TFAM members were invited to create an 8 1/2″ by 11″ art quilt for a collaborative fibre art project inspired by the unique, historic experience that is life during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Upcoming Event

Have you been to the Colour with a ‘U’ exhibition at the Buhler Gallery? The quilts are beautiful and inspiring; so much so that we invite you to join us for an online evening of quilt making.

SAQA quilt artists Susan Selby and Cathie Ugrin will be leading an exciting workshop on creating strip pieced abstract landscapes using two different approaches. Susan will work with a raw edge technique, and Cathie will present strip piecing with curved seams. Both methods are finished with free-motion machine quilting, hand quilting, and other embellishments if you wish.

Techniques are suitable for any skill level.

When: Thursday, January 6, 7:00-8:30pm

Where: Zoom link will be announced closer to workshop date

Bias Outside the Box (BOB)

by Dr. Rehman Abdulrehman and Ian McCausland, is a public art installation visible at the southeast exterior of the Everett Atrium here at St. Boniface Hospital. It is part of Nuit Blanche, 2021, and will be up for an extended period of time as part of a larger group of exhibitions on the same theme.

Bias Outside the Box (BOB) is an online personal learning tool based on a combination of the science of psychology and the art of photography. Dr. Rehman Abdulrehman (Lead With Diversity) and Ian McCausland teamed up to create portraits of people from various ethnicities, in cultural dress. These photographs are presented to the viewer in an attempt to help people identify their own bias so they can readily work on changing it.

This display is brought to you by the Buhler Gallery and the St. Boniface Hospital Foundation.
