Felt artist, Rosemarie Peloquin will be part of this year’s Proutopia.
What is Proutopia? The art market that thinks it’s a festival. It runs 10 am – 5 pm, Aug 31 – Sept 1, 2019 at 3044 Prout Rd, 17E, West of Winnipeg Beach, MB.
Proutopia is the brainchild of textile artist Heidi Hunter and hosted at her studio Runs with Scissors Studio. The theme, Birds of a Feather, is inspired by the work of New York artist Gigi Chen and her affinity for the Bowerbird and its influence on her art.
The art market features 30 artist booths in a rural festival atmosphere. Go here to enjoy a flip book of the artists work: http://www.runswithscissors.ca/proutopia.html

Music and merrymakers
