Brigitte Dion’s paintings capture a quality of light familiar to most prairie residents. Vistas shift between city, forest and prairie, offering angles of low-slung prairie buildings and inner city high rises, mixed with unadorned prairie landscape. Working mainly in acrylics, Dion explores a “physical connection to the world,” recording experiences of the moment. Since graduating with her BFA, Honours, from the University of Manitoba, Dion has been the recipient of multiple awards. She has held positions as art instructor and workshop facilitator with various programs, including the Winnipeg Art Gallery’s Studio Programs for Children and as a guest instructor in various schools. Her works may be found in public collections throughout Manitoba, with pieces in private collections as far away as the British West Indies and Berlin.
