Cliff Derksen's art on display at the Altona Gallery in the Park, June 2 - August 5, 2012.
"There are many ways to diarize a journey, one way is to express the learnings and emotions in art. ...In the human experience, the act of murder against a loved one raises complicated and often sinister issues.... How does one put words to it all?....then the expression of art becomes important to the survivors." Ray Dirks, Mennonite Heritage Centre Art Gallery.
Other artists also showing during this show include Don McMaster, Margruite Krahn, Gail Sawatzky, Rechelle Bergen and more.
Doors open: Tuesday to Friday – 12:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Saturday & Sunday – 12:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Closed Mondays and public holidays.

We would like to Welcome Michele Sarna who has officially moved into Tom's studio space. She is a visual artist working in many different mediums and also teaches at the Winnipeg Art Gallery.
