After a successful 50 year career few would expect artist Keith Wood to turn his process on its head. Yet that is exactly what we get with Inner-view, Wood’s breakthrough of encaustic drawings on paper, opening at Gurevich Fine Art @ McNally Robinson. The exhibit opens on March 10, 7:30 PM and is on display until April 6, 2014.
Working in the abstract genre, the broad natural forms within Wood’s work now give way to a new expression of lightness in his encaustic works. Wood has a love for drawing, yet he has never felt the ability to express it in his encaustic work. These new works represent a period of revolution. Wood now expresses the confidence to produce what he calls encaustic drawings.
ABOUT GUREVICH FINE ART @ MCNALLY ROBINSON
Gurevich Fine Art and McNally Robinson Booksellers have partnered to create the gallery space: Gurevich Fine Art @ McNally Robinson. The partnership is the culmination of a passion for art, intellect and culture to be enjoyed in one collective space. The relationship is based on the shared belief that reading and art are integral for an observant, imaginative and rewarding life.
Three years ago McNally Robinson owners Paul and Holly McNally realized there was a gap in the Winnipeg art scene. There were very few commercial spaces for artists to show and sell their work. It was from this realization that they created the Small Works Series for the Prairie Ink Café in McNally Robinson’s Grant Park location. Independently, Howard Gurevich had come to the same conclusion and he created the gallery Gurevich Fine Art. Winnipeg based painter Keith Wood introduced the McNally’s and Gurevich, and their synergy created the plan for further development of the of Winnipeg’s artistic community.
Gurevich Fine Art @ McNally Robinson specializes in highlighting gifted artists primarily from Winnipeg. Each month a curated exhibit will feature smaller scale works from different a different artist.
Gurevich Fine Art @ McNally Robinson is located in Winnipeg’s Grant Park Shopping Centre close to major transit routes and minutes away from the iconic Corydon Avenue and Osborne Village.
