Leigh Konyk

I am a visual artist born and raised on Treaty 1 Territory. I attended University of Manitoba completing my BFA with a thesis in ceramics in 1992. After graduating, my work shifted to a more 2 dimensional format using mixed media, collage and photography. My first solo exhibition was titled Organized Spine in 1999 and since then I have been part of numerous solo and group exhibitions at local galleries including Cre8ery Gallery, Fleet Galleries and the Gas Station Arts Centre (GSAC). 

Most recently, I have been constructing my own visual commentary using vintage advertisements with collage/mixed media. In the summer of 2022, the GSAC will feature photographs documenting the Bay Downtown during its closure in 2020/2021.
