Current Exhibition Schedule
The Pembina Hills Arts Council strives to provide a balanced exhibition program to showcase the abundance of local talent in our Pembina Valley region, while also providing educational and thought-provoking shows to stimulate the artistic community.
Coming Up in 2018:
“Born” Professional Birth Photographers of Manitoba (February 19 to March 31, 2018)
About the Exhibit:
Being born is one thing that every human on our planet has in common. As both mothers ourselves, as well as professional photographers, we have joined forces to celebrate the beauty and strength that is the welcoming of new life. We are fueled by our desire to normalize birth in a society that tends to hush open discussions surrounding it. With our art and imagery we hope to showcase the indescribable beauty that occurs where all of our journeys begin; birth.
The opening reception will take place on Saturday February 24th at 7:30pm, with an artist talk at approx. 8:00pm. We are honoured to invite you to join us in celebrating this unique and powerful exhibit.
It is an honour and a privilege every time we are trusted to enter into a family’s birth space to document their transition into parenthood (or parenthood again). We are now humbled to be able to share some of these incredible moments with all of you.

“Flow” High School Exhibition (April 3 to 28, 2018)
“Revisiting” Eunji Jung (May 1 to 31, 2018)
Description – We all used to have our own fantasies and imaginary worlds when we were little. Revisiting shows our innocence and imaginative ability which ostensibly seems to have dissipated over time, drawing inspiration from my own past emotions and imaginations. Through this collection, I hope my watercolour paintings, mixed media artwork, and digital illustrations creating a pensive and whimsical mood can help revive our inner child. Like in the movie Hook, my art plays the role of Tinkerbell, and even if for a brief moment, allow us to escape and reunite with long-forgotten imaginary friends (who have been waiting to play for a long time!), and to re-enter our own world of wonder and astonishment—one that fills our hearts with warmth, comfort, and joy. For young viewers, my art can inspire a greater scope of imagination that continues to push the boundaries of a world without boundaries.
Opening Reception: Friday May 4th, 2018 between 7:30pm and 9:30pm
37th Annual Central Region Juried Art Exhibit Touring Show (June 2 to 29, 2018)
” Flight ” Summer Members Exhibit (July and August 2018)
“Finding Darkness and Light” Lori Lofgren (September 1 to 29, 2018)
Lori Lofgren’s work is an investigation into how light and shadow can alter our emotional perspectives, and change how we feel in our ostensibly safe places. Each piece is a representation of the moment immediately before, or following a disturbing event. This series of small-scale sculptures represent the dualities of emotion in relation to environment, scale, and the uncanny. Dualities often appear within disturbing scenes: love and hate, wealth and poverty, reality and fiction, friend and foe, secrets and discovery, life and death. These dichotomies occur as a cause or an effect of each relationship or event. This series represents those tensions by using light and shadow to both induce and highlight the uncanny. Light and shadow can create a sense of anticipation in any environment, and their contradictions often shape the way we experience even the most familiar spaces.
