Walking around a Wintery Winnipeg at night I encountered the Santas of SantaCon 2012,
and an art show at Zsa Zsa West Gallery involving unique lamps.
Themed Light Exhibition – Trip the Light Fantastic
Trip the Light Fantastic is a curated group exhibition and sale taking place at Zsa Zsa West, 211 Pacific Avenue in Winnipeg. The theme of the show is light and will include lamps and lanterns as the basis of the show. The intention of the exhibition is to celebrate the Winter Solstice – however lamps and lanterns may be on any theme. All lanterns must be fireproof and lamps must be as close to CSA approval as possible. A parade of lanterns will take place on Pacific Avenue during the opening reception on the evening of December 15. Performances related to the parade are encouraged. Artists are encouraged to send either a proposed lamp or lantern or an example of previous works. Works using recycled material will be given preference for this exhibition. The works will be for sale and must be $100 and under. Trip the Light Fantastic is a 50/50 sale fundraiser for Zsa Zsa West. Sorry – out of town artists wishing to participate must pay for their own shipping.
