“Tell My Friends I Love Them”
December 1, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 1:00pm on Saturday, repeating until December 31, 2017
Opening with a public reception 7pm December 1st at LANTERN are new works on paper from three artists whose practice spans three continents. These are intimate portraits of places the artists have called home. Homes that are current and from the past. Amongst heart ache and yearning there is a love for these localities in their eccentricities and conflicts. Lush and exuberant, foreign and familiar, this assemblage from Jennifer Belair, Cyrus Smith, and Miriam Rudolph runs for the month of December at LANTERN, 211 Pacific Avenue in Winnipeg.
“I chose the title “Tell my friends I love them” as something one says embarking on a long journey. There is a foreboding sense of finality to the statement, like something a war correspondent might say before the telephone lines go down. In this case I wanted to both acknowledge the sacrifices that artists make when they choose a life of art, and also that making art is in itself a way of telling your friends how you love them.”
-Paul Zacharias, director
