Tree of Life
Peter DuMans is a Winnipeg artist who learned to express himself visually from an early age. He began working in metal in high school and went on to take a number of off-campus courses to augment his passion for creating with metal.

The world around him is his inspiration. He uses the welding torch much as a paint brush when creating his art. Peter predominately creates in copper, brass, stainless steel and chrome.His sculptural forms as well as his multi media works on canvas sometimes includes clay and wood.

A Pause in the Routine, Cindy Dyson

Lunch on Broadway, 42" x 48" acrylic on canvas

A Pause in the Routine

Selected works from October 1-31. 
Many more works and artist in attendance October 14, from 7-9 pm.


My fascination with everyday street scenes reflects my hope and struggle to believe that the most beautiful moments in life are not always as expected. Perhaps these precious times are all at once – mundane and frenzied, fragile and strong, peaceful and painful, sunny and dark.
I work with acrylic paint and palette knives. I find that the endlessness to the variety of mark I can make with these tools challenges and fascinates me. I love the physicality and range of the knife – aggressive slices, delicate dabs, focused scrapes and thick bold swaths of colour. The paint is so flexible - I can spray, splatter, blob and pour it. These qualities enable me to express a wide range of emotion in each piece.

I am greatly influenced by the European Impressionists. Their sensitive offerings physically and emotionally connect me to their 19th century world. My application of paint does not result in realistic representation. Rather, I am satisfied with a rough familiarity and mood of subject. My goal is to present an intriguing balance of roughness and tenderness; boldness and vulnerability, representation and expression.
