As one of Manitoba's pre-eminent photographic and digital artists, Larry Glawson has been an active member of Winnipeg's artist-run scene for the last twenty-five years. This exhibition consists of twenty-seven portraits taken over as many years, and it acts as a long overdue look at Glawson's photographic practice. 27 x Doug: Portraits by Larry Glawson showcases work from the various portrait series undertaken by the artist over his career, including Family Album (1983), Private Icons (1986), The Self Portrait Project (1988), Paired Portraits (1992), The Anonymous Gay & Lesbian Portrait Project (1992-2005), and his most recent body of work, home bodies (2002-ongoing). The selection of work is accompanied by images pertaining to the artist's various portraits of his partner Doug Melnyk.
