Plucked from the basements, garages, bedrooms and blanket forts of Winnipeg, this exhibition hopes to amplify the unsung, shed light on those working in the shadows and invite in the outsider. This grouping of DIY artists are compelled to create works of art for the sake of creating. Their works are personal, singular, uninfluenced, grotesque and full of raw beauty.
-DEEP DIVE is on display until August 22 2019-
