This past April, Family Legacy, a solo exhibition on the work of artist Rosalie Favell (www.rosaliefavell.com), opened up at the Winnipeg Art Gallery (WAG). The works in the exhibition are a creative labour of love building on Rosalie’s previous series such, from an early age revisited (2014-2016), Closer to Heaven (2012), Wish You Were Here (2010), and Longing and Not Belonging (1998), where she draws inspiration from her paternal grandmother and parents’ extensive photographic archives. The new work is rich with stories reaching back into her Métis family history.
FROM THE WAG:
