He Said, She Said, She Said: perspectives on the Peace

It’s a visual feast of three different perspectives of the Peace at He Said, She Said, She Said, the new exhibit on display at Peace Gallery North.

There are more than 60 works, most of them new, from Mike Kroecher, Sandy Troudt, and Miep Burgerjon, that include acrylics and oils on canvas, cyanotype and linoblock prints, and watercolour batik prints on fine Japanese papers.

“This show represents their characters very well,” says Natalie Brekkaas, co-ordinator of Peace Gallery North.

On Miep Burgerjon:

"Miep tends to be a little dreamy, a little fantasy. She tends much more toward the abstract," Brekkaas says.

“Miep has a very experimental and light-hearted approach to her art work."

On Mike Kroecher:

"Mike does really strong and powerful representations of the Peace valley, showing the strength of the land, and how rich and connected it is," Brekkaas says.

"Mike, his passion for the valley shows, and the way he treats this as a subject, finding new perspectives all the time, shows a lot of respect for the area."

On Sandy Troudt:

"Sandy, I love her work because it's delicate. It tends to be more peaceful and of the quiet moments," Brekkaas says.

"Sandy clearly has an eye for fine detail, and has a much more feminine view of her world.”
