Re:Union, Art Exhibition & Sale, features seven Winnipeg artists who attended the University of Manitoba School of Art together from 1997 – 2003.
Each has their own unique voice, though they are all united in their love for artistic expression and creative community.

Elaine Baril’s art seeks to express a unique interpretation of the commonplace, both in living forms and in abstract random shapes of nature. 

Jordan Miller’s brush and palette knife wander freely and organically within the confines of the canvas. As the layers grow thick, the subject reveals itself.

Brian Pollreis’s current work represents his exploration of three dimensional media and the use of visual techniques to bring his thoughts and feelings to some sort of fruition. 

John Roshon works with natural mediums of wood, paper, and sometimes beeswax. John endeavours to translate the beauty of the cycle of life.

Dawn Wilkinson’s work is a mix of photography and paintings, inspired by her travels. 

Louise Valcourt’s latest series of paintings explore images from her dreams. 

Stevan Seimens’s work draws on the notion of accident as the sounds created are unpredictable and unrepeatable.
