The Manitoba Arts Network is pleased to announce a major traveling exhibition of Mike Grandmaison's photographs. The exhibition will launch at Pixels 2.1 Gallery in Winnipeg from September 7 to 29, 2012. This 38 print show will feature large sacale photographs based in part on the book 'Prairie and Beyond', published earlier in the spring by Turnstone Press.
Friesens Corporation, one of North America's finest printers of quality books, invited Mike Grandmaison to collaborate on a book project to showcase Friesens in-house digital and binding technology. Mike adapted long time collaborator Rob Peters' design (Circle Design) from a previous commission to produce this 64 page, 16 x 6.5 inch color booklet featuring Mike's fine art photography from The Canadian Gallery. By flipping each side of this compound book, the reader is able to compare the quality of the same image printed on conventional offset printing with that of the recent advances of digital printing.

What makes a particular photograph a work of art? This is an age old question that will be tackled once more by a panel of very distinguished guests this coming Wednesday at Pixels 2.1 Gallery in Winnipeg, Manitoba. The panel of art gallery curators, critics and fine art photographers, most of whom are renown internationally, will draw from a varied background and experience to discuss various aspects of fine art photography.
'Pixels - The Exhibition' is held over for another week. It will end on Saturday July 2nd. This exhibition is the latest to be held at the new Pixels2Point1 Gallery in the historic 'Exchange District' in downtown Winnipeg. Pixels2Point1, also affectionately known as Pixels 2.1, is a gallery dedicated to displaying the works created by Manitoba photographers.
