Grace Lynn Monk

Grace Lynn Monk grew up on a family farm near Killarney where she took any spare time to draw. At 22, she graduated from the University of Manitoba with a Bachelor’s degree in History. She combines her love of art with her love of history.

This exhibition featured Monk’s work around the Second World War and is a loving tribute to her Grandfather and the animals of the Great War.

Adelyn Nichol

In 2000, Adelyn Nichol decided to try her hand at quilting. It didn’t take long to establish her interest in wall art, rather than conventional quilting. As with most things, she needed to do things her own way, rather than follow patterns and rules!

In 2002, she ventured into taking stained glass classes in Brandon with a friend. Her work in mosaics was all self-taught and has brought her much enjoyment. She also enjoys designing many wall hangings, both fabric and glass, for churches and fund raising auctions.

Adelyn and her husband Wayne live on their own farm of 51 years where she has lots of room to play with her projects including stripping and refinishing furniture.

Judy Danard

In 1968, Judy Danard graduated from Brandon University with a Bachelor of Science degree with a major in zoology and a minor in botany. In 1970 she went on to achieve a Professional Certificate of Education from the Manitoba Department of Education which included a specialized course in teaching art.

From 1968 until she retired in 2002, Danard taught in the Manitoba education system with most of her experience in Killarney, Manitoba.

Danard loves to paint and to share this love with people of all ages. She currently teaches painting at the Heritage Home for the Arts in Killarney to both children, youth and adults.
