Five area artists part of provincial online exhibition

How do you hold an art show during COVID-19? A new provincial exhibition featuring a handful of Flin Flon-area artists has gone online.

The annual Manitoba Rural Northern Juried Art Show is taking place online this year due to COVID-19. The event features work from 56 artists from across the province, including paintings, photography, sketches, ceramics, sculpture and other media.

Each piece in the show was submitted by the artist that created it, with only pieces that passed adjudication making it into the online gallery.

Of the 12 artists submitted in the northern category, five are from the Flin Flon area - Denare Beach-based photographer Brandy Bloxom, painters Karen Clark and Jan Modler, sculptor Melanie Rodabaugh and sketch artist Rosimeire Anjos - who entered a piece in graphite of fellow entrant Clark.

The online show replaces what would have been the premier show for northern and rural artists in Manitoba.

“Audiences will now have access to view the artwork online and purchase works 24/7 with an entirely new and innovative program to Manitoba Art Network’s 2020 programming that will reach a larger audience,” read a news release on the exhibition from the Manitoba Arts Network.

Pieces in the exhibition are up for award consideration through voting by members of the public, with the vote open until Oct. 20. A final party will be held via Zoom Oct. 22 to reveal which artists won awards.

The exhibition went online Sept. 3 and can be found at artgallery.manitobaartsnetwork.ca.
