Cheery Still Life and Landscape Paintings by Michelle Pereira
May 28 – June 18, 2022
Woodlands Gallery is pleased to present our sixth SAP* exhibition artist, Michelle Pereira, with her vibrant still life and landscape paintings in, SAP: Sun-Kissed.
Michelle Pereira is an emerging artist based in Winnipeg, Manitoba with a degree in Industrial Design from the Florence Design Academy in Italy. Growing up in the Caribbean, before moving to Winnipeg at age 14, instilled a love and appreciation for nature that directly influences her vibrant palette.
While living in Vancouver Pereira studied 3D Design at Emily Carr University of Art and Design. It was this time spent on the West Cost that inspired her to capture the beauty of land and water with a paintbrush. In Summer 2021, she exhibited a collection of Clear Lake themed paintings in the retail portion of Wasagaming Community Arts.
Working in acrylics on panel and canvas, Pereira creates cheery still life and landscape paintings that are soaked in sunlight and splashed with citrus. Her miniature and medium-sized works invite us to sip a refreshing mojito and beckon us to dip our toes in sparkling waters!
Opening Reception: Please join us on Saturday May 28th between 1:00 and 4:00 pm to meet the artist, enjoy light refreshments and celebrate the forthcoming dog days of summer with Michelle Pereira’s first gallery exhibition, SAP: Sun-Kissed.
*Our Supplementary Artists Program (SAP) features contemporary emerging artists from Manitoba for a limited engagement, providing them with gallery exposure and building on our mandate to support Canadian artists. This program also gives our clientele the opportunity to survey and purchase work from local artists who are not (or not yet) on our roster of artists.
