Art Exhibition Opening Delights of the Soul: A Raft in the Storm
Artist Talk at 2:00pm.

A delight is something that pleases a person. We savour these moments of undiluted freedom. Each moment, each delight is personal and unique for everyone, but the emotions we feel are the same. They are our rafts in the storm…  Artworks by five Winnipeg artists: 
 • Dan Hawksworth is a pop culture, mythology and cosmos inspired mixed media artist who uses abstract styles to look beyond the day to day world. 
 • John Izzard is an expressive acrylic and mixed media artist whose art is a spiritual journey representing the world seen and unseen through layering, texture and shading. 
 • Jola Liebzeit is an abstract expressionist acrylic and mixed media artist who uses light, texture and color to create atmosphere and express emotion in her art. 
 • Jordan Miller is an intuitive mixed media artist working in an abstract style to create emotional self aware works of art. 
 • Sari Habiluk is an intuitive abstract artist working in acrylics. Her vibrant colour palette translates over multiple styles evoking a sense of whimsy and experimentation.
