Manitoba, NW Minnesota and NE S. Dakota. This event honours one of America’s most beloved and creative curators, Walter Hopps (1932-2005), whose 1978 “ Thirty Six Hours” was the first such known exhibition of this type. One of Deborah Danelley’s intriguing book collage works titled “Challenged” will be exhibited for this event.

The Pathos of Things

September 24 - November 7, 2016
Artist in attendance: Saturday October 1 and Thursday October 20, 7-9pm.

Fleet Gallery
65 Albert Street Winnipeg MB

The title of this exhibition – the Pathos of Things, is a literal translation for the Japanese aesthetic idea known as Mono No Aware. It simply means empathy toward things, or a compassionate sensitivity to or identification with things outside oneself. It is also about an awareness and acceptance of impermanence, and a celebration of the natural beauty of things aged or in some way infused with the patina of life.

Often, the materials I use or the subject matter I am drawn to have been abandoned – used, misused, broken, damaged by time, rejected or just no longer needed. Like human scars, these are the very things that make someone or something unique. For me they carry physical proof of both strength and resiliency; they have had the ability not only to endure but to be transformed and now re-experienced for the appreciation of others.

Deborah is Back to Havana in July 2015

For two weeks this past July, Deborah was invited  back to Havana by Cuban curator Magdalena  Rivas, to participate in an international group exhibition titled “Por la Boca Muere el Pez” at the Galeria de Arte, “la Moderna” in Centro Havana.

Six new book collage pieces were created specifically for this exhibition, expanding on her Meditations on Landscape series but this time titled “Havana” Series V.

The pieces were well received by artists, curators and the director of the gallery, and Deborah now has several major opportunities for future solo and group exhibitions in 2017 in Havana and possibly Santa Clara, Cuba.

Artist and Ambassador

December 2012 Issue

Before Deborah Danelley became an artist, she worked at a company that sold software that helps people decide on a particular vocation. 

“It was a program that allowed students to input information about themselves and their interests, and it would spew out different types of career options,” says Danelley.

To Havana with Love

From: ARTisSpectrum- The Chelsea Perspective, New York
November, 2012 www.artisspectrum.com

A bi-annual art magazine that provides artists, collectors, museums, galleries, art organizations and enthusiasts with access to the work of internationally talented emerging and established artists as well as feature articles, reviews and interviews.

Check out an article on Deborah’s work in Cuba in the Humanitarian Section of the magazine, "To Havanan with Love: The Muraleando Community Art Project", pages 71-72.

Danelley has been back every year since—always bringing with her suitcases full of donated art materials, sundries and clothes. That dedication has earned her a nickname: the ‘Canadian ambassador’ of Muraleando.
