I was glad to see that the WAG had decided to put up a photography exhibit and was immediately interested. Between Something and Nothing was an enthralling experience, people who may not have a huge interest in photography can take a chance to look through Lynne Cohen’s perspective on life and experience for themselves her style of photography.

Through the Eyes of a Child is one of the most inspiring exhibits I have viewed this year. The exhibit consists of work done by the children involved in studio programs at the WAG. This exhibit was without a doubt, very colorful, lively, and refreshing. The art produced by these children is pure creativity.

Throughout the world, women and girls are the victims of countless types of violence. The range of this violence is heartbreaking, and sadly, it follows them from their conception, to their birth, and to their death. It does not matter to which culture they belong, their ethnicity, their social class...it pervades every aspect of their lives. These acts of violence are the main focus of Off the Beaten Path: Violence, Women and Art. It uses multimedia and art to promote awareness of what is going on in our ''oh so advanced'' society.

Given the thought-provoking and emotional nature of Off the Beaten Path we have hung a series of clotheslines in one of the galleries and have been inviting visitors to share their thoughts, comments and stories by writing them down and then pinning the card to one of these “lines of thought”. We have been overwhelmed and moved by the often very personal stories that have been shared.

The exhibition Looking Up is an intriguing mix of pieces created by Winnipeg artists and Inuit artworks from the WAG's collection. What I love about this is that it isn't just about being inspired by the Inuit art at the WAG, it also displays the work that inspired them.
