Winnipeg Telephone (Artist) Book

From Also As Well Too Press, this book is a visual version of the childhood game of Telephone. With each of the 75 Winnipeg artists getting three days for their turn, this book acts (just like a phone book from any given year) as a snapshot of the Winnipeg arts scene at this moment in time.

They picked it. They made it. Group Exhibition

Lisa Kehler Art + Projects presents: They picked it. They made it. 

A group exhibition featuring the entire LKAP roster.  Each artist was invited to select a couple of works by their fellow artists, and the result is a show running a spectrum of media, from collage to painting to photography. This is an exceptional opportunity to acquire art work made by leading artists working in in the city.

Winnipeg lays claim to some of the most innovative contemporary artists and They picked it. They made it. is an incredible opportunity to showcase that talent, both locally and nationally.
