Gallery One One One is pleased to announce the opening of the exhibition The Anna & Lyle Silverman Donation. The exhibition presents 21 works selected from a donation by Winnipeg collectors Anna and Lyle Silverman [UM alumnus, BSc(Pharm)/66]. The Silverman Donation is an exciting cross-section of figurative and abstract prints by many of Canada's most important contemporary artists, including Jack Bush, Alex Colville, Christopher Pratt, and Joyce Wieland, Quebec artists Jacques Hurtubise and Alfred Pellan, and Manitoba artists Ivan Eyre, Andrew Valko, and Don Proch. The exhibition also includes a three-dimensional silverpoint and graphite on fibreglass work by Proch, a lacquer on aluminium painting by Tony Tascona, and a unique screenprint on metal by American artist Michael Bigger. A highlight of the Silverman Donation is a stunning Structurist relief by Alberta artist, Ron Kostyniuk, commissioned by the Silvermans.

The Anna & Lyle Silverman Donation is the third exhibition in a series of three shows in 2010 intended to acknowledge and to celebrate the important contribution of private donors, not only to the permanent collection of Gallery One One One, but also to the School of Art and the University of Manitoba. Previous exhibitions featured donations from Bill Lobchuk, artist and founder of the Grand Western Canadian Screen Shop, and Winnipeg artist Frank Mikuska.
