Diary of Events and Happenings in Winnipeg, Manitoba.


In.tention Life is intense. Art is more intense. And the intent of this show is to bring you face to face with both. In.tention explores our roots, our life journeys and what lies beyond. At times it is filled with joy, at times with sadness, but always it is intense. Seven women form the Group of 8 Artist Salon, with the eighth entity representing our spirit, uniqueness and strengths. We challenge and critique each other's work; we support each other in our art careers and in our journeys through life. Although diverse in our art-making styles, we share a commitment to continue celebrating our artistic achievements as members of the Group of 8. These seven women who make up the Group of 8 Artist Salon have been painting for a total of 130 years. They came together under the mentorship of Milos Milidrag, formerly of the University of Sarajevo, and have also studied with many other local and international art teachers, including Leona Brown in Winnipeg, and Diana Thorneycroft, George Glenn, and David Garneau at the Arts West annual artist retreat in Clear Lake. This is where the Group of 8 originated in the summer of 2008.
