Each portrait in this collection from Winnipeg artist and designer, Robert J. Sweeney, brings to life in brilliant colour the many faces of Manitoba’s “River City.”
With over forty full colour illustrations of Winnipeg’s most loved locations, Portraits of Winnipeg captures the true spirit of the city. From Portage and Main to the Forks, to Kildonan Park’s Witch’s Hut, Sweeney’s keen eye captures the familiar sights of Winnipeg and its suburban areas with extraordinary detail and precision.
Robert J. Sweeney has previously collaborated with author Murray Peterson on two volumes of Winnipeg Landmarks featuring his sketches of famous Winnipeg buildings.
This opening, a part of McNally Robinson’s Small Works Gallery Series, will feature an artist’s talk and book launch, after which limited edition quality prints of Sweeney’s fine work will be shown and on sale in the Small Works Gallery.
