Tommy McLeod Curve Gallery, John E. Robbins Library

Event Navigation

Join artist Wendy Friesen for a talk and tour of her ‘Guitars’ exhibition on display in the Curve Gallery, upstairs in the John E. Robbins Library at Brandon University.

Friesen’s Guitars is a pop art exhibit representing themes of rock and roll, healing, community, inclusivity, and Pride. This series brings together miniature guitars, both replicas and original conceptions, constructed in detail, evoking a sense of celebration and joy. Hand constructed in mixed media, Guitars draws in the viewer in with playful delight, then focuses attention on finer details in thought-provoking ways. The exhibition is interspersed with Friesen’s poetry – written on many subject matters, but primarily about her personal queer experiences and queer advocacy. Information on the Westman Empowerment Fund is also shared as part of the exhibition.

This event is free with no registration required.
