Founded in 2014, FLASH is Winnipeg’s Annual Photographic Festival. Each October the city sees photographs on walls in cafes, shops and galleries; giving a venue for established and emerging artists. This year we have turned the tables on ourselves and are presenting a group exhibition featuring the photographic work of the staff of ACI Manitoba.

We are exploring how photography shapes our ideas and informs how we perceive ourselves, the world around us and our connection to the Manitoba art scene. It is the view from us, giving insight into who we are, and why we do what we do for our artistic community. Works in the exhibition will range from landscape to figurative, portraiture to abstract. With each one of us an individual expressing the idea of who we are, our passions and our drive to create. The exhibit will run from Monday, October 3rd to Monday, October 31st, open to the general public regular hours of operation.

Participating artists are: Thom Sparling, Carol Finlay, Kate Vermette, Kaitlin Aiello, Arlea Ashcroft, Alicia Faucher, Jamie Lou Morneau, Jan Skene, Christie Fischer, and Kathe Meseman
