A Manitoba Art Network Exhibition is at the Norva Center all this month. Summer student Neal Smedegaard explains it features the work of Gabriela Ines Aguero called Exploring The Self and it is about her identity and her changing in the time not making art while she was raising kids. He says Gabriela was born in Cordoba, Argentina where she grew up during a military dictatorship. She immigrated to Canada in 1985 and lived in England and Australia. She holds a BSA honors in painting from the University of Manitoba as well as a Masters from Louisiana State University. He adds Gabriela’s deep relationship with nature is expressed in the paintings where the landscape becomes part of the figure which relates to her veganism and admiration for life.
The exhibit will be in the Norva Center at 177 Green Street until July 31st.
