Photography Evening with Alexandra Ross
Tall Grass Interpretive Centre – Stuartburn
Alexandra Ross is a visual artist working primarily in ceramics, print, and photography. Her art disrupts the constructed tensions between chaos and order; human and animal; sublime and mundane. Her work seeks to find the liminal space between these dichotomies and expose areas where the line is blurred or reversed. Alexandra is currently completing her BFA at the University of Manitoba’s School of Art. Join Alexandra for an evening of photography while exploring the tall grass prairies.
Sundial Music Festival
Pinawa Sundial – Pinawa
Entering the festival scene this year, the Sundial Music Festival is starting off small and intimate, so if you're taking our advice and entering the world of music festivals, this would be a great one for you to test the water in. While it may be short and sweet, the lineup packs a lot of punch! Featuring Dan Frechette & Laurel Thomsen, The Deeds, Odder than Otters, and Amadians .
