Artist Showcase: Faith Rae

September 1 – October 22

The Godfrey Dean Art Gallery is proud to support local artist Faith Rae, whose work explores different mediums and ways of communicating experience and identity.

Living and working in rural Saskatchewan, Faith recently graduated from the University of Brandon with an Undergraduate Degree in Fine Arts. Her thesis exhibition “Evolving” was shown in Brandon in 2021 at the Glen P. Sutherland Gallery of Art, and since that time also in Portage La Prairie at Fusion Arts Atrium Gallery and as part of Reclaiming Our Narrative at the Art Gallery of Southwestern Manitoba. Pieces from this show are presented here at GDAG.
Special thanks to SK Arts for their support of this exhibition and the artist’s creation through the Prince Edwards Arts Scholarship.

Open House and Paint Night with Faith Rae
Friday, Oct 21, 7:00pm

“Through creating art, I have transitioned towards self-acceptance. My work explores the process of coming out of my shell by forming and reconstructing my understanding of my identity. To examine and deconstruct my own queer existence through art lets me take control of the preconceived shame to empower my diversity. Painting, mixed media and installation have allowed me to explore my evolving identity and metaphorically analyze its ‘layers’ through a variety of media.”
