September 2023 Exhibition:
Revival by Glen Krushel
Drawing on a Bachelor's Degree in Theatre Production from the University of Winnipeg and his experience as a large scale scenic artist, Glen carries the same techniques used in painting 40 foot by 70 foot backdrops onto home sized canvasses.
Although his main genre is impressionist landscape, Glen paints abstract as a form of spiritual release. He occasionally will combine the two. With poetry sometimes thrown into the mix, he's sure to engage his audience.
Revival was Glen's first painting outside the realm of theatre. It represents new beginnings, forgiveness, and hope.
Glen is a volunteer facilitator and coach in the field of addiction recovery and wellness and uses his art to increase public awareness.
