Wag ball 2019

I was invited to decorate gallery 4 for the https://www.wag.ca Winnipeg art gallery ball this October.

It featured the north end photographs of local artist John Paskievich. Funnily enough, one of the men in the photos was my dad’s childhood friend.

I really wanted to keep the neutral tones of the room while adding some warmth. I enlisted my artist friends Penny and Wade Kovacs to help with the vessels.

They found this light fixture at a thrift shop and thought of the frames that are found in old school film strips. They took it apart to form the vases for each table.

I went with a brown and rust color palette and incorporated the prairie looking pampas grass stems for height. A pleasure to work with the gallery again ‘
