“DISCOVERING STILLNESS” OPENING RECEPTION

FRIDAY, nov. 16, 2018. 7-9PM | PULSE GALLERY, JOHNSTON TERMINAL

"When the world seems to stop and take a breath..."

A celebration of diversity with new works in both glass and acrylic paintings by Manitoba artist Kathleen Noelle Black. Kathleen has created a body of artwork that encourages viewers to pause, contemplate and take a breath. 

It is the strength and beauty of people and the prairies that inspires her. Her work expresses an overwhelming interest in time and mortality. Time of day, time of life, how little or great the time. She continuously works on developing new and creative techniques -- such as merging her love of painting and glass. 

Artist will be in attendance. Exhibit runs Nov. 1-30. http://pulsegallery.ca/events

design quarter winnipeg anniversary: pop up box reveal

friday, june 1, 2018. | bijou park

Design Quarter Winnipeg turns one on June 1st! To celebrate, we will be unveiling our "POP-UP BOX", the middle shipping container permanently located in Bijou Park, to showcase what kind of pop-up opportunities can transpire within this unique, re-purposed vessel.

On June 1st, we will transform the “POP-UP BOX” into a mini cocktail bar + lounge area for the public as they are out exploring the Exchange District for First Fridays. We will also take this opportunity to distribute our new Design Quarter maps to visitors!

The overall intention of the “POP-UP BOX” is to provide our Design Quarter members with the opportunity to promote their businesses by temporarily activating Bijou Park through various programming such as pop-up markets, art production, performance, information dissemination, etc.

Join us for this one-of-a-kind market experience to ring in Spring! Free entry; everyone welcome!  The intention of this event is to facilitate a fully-immersive and interactive design experience, giving the public a ‘glimpse’ or ‘preview’ of what Design Quarter is all about under one roof, then encouraging visitors to go out and explore the actual Design Quarter to its full potential! 

This is not your typical market with rows of vendors selling their wares! In addition to this, we are getting creative with the market set-up, working with the space to generate an engaging experience, where visitors can SEE, DO, LEARN ABOUT or BUY design-related activities +/or products.
