This exhibition features key works by Eleanor Bond, Aganetha Dyck, Wanda Koop and Diana Thorneycroft from the collection of Gallery One One One, recently acquired through the efforts of the Co-chairs of Gallery One One One's Collections Committee, professor Oliver Botar and gallerist Robert Epp. Within the context of a rapidly expanding Winnipeg art scene, Eleanor Bond, Aganetha Dyck, Wanda Koop and Diana Thorneycroft continue to be key players. Included are large-scale paintings by Koop, from her Sightline series, and from Bond's Social Centres project, an excerpt from an installation by Dyck, Inter Species Communication Attempt, based on her collaboration with bees, and a charcoal drawing by Thorneycroft inspired by her Monstrance exhibition.
In conjunction withtis exhibition, Gallery One One One organized a year-long lecture series:
Survivorama Lecture Series - (September 2006 - March 2007) Organized by Winnipeg artist Bev Pike and based on the Survivor television programme, this series of lectures/workshops gave students innovative tools for success during their education and afterward. Each speaker provided tip sheets and challenges that encouraged students to develop their understanding of each lecture on mentoring. Each speaker presented her own definition of 'The Island' based upon the lecture topic.
