Ten Winnipeg born artists have been selected by Saul Gallery Artist Sarah Anne Johnson and Border Crossings Editor Meeka Walsh to be exhibited in the group show Out of Nowhere. The exhibition draws on artists of all media, including photography, painting, drawing, video, and collage. Many of the artists are young and up-in-coming but a handful of the group has shown abroad in France in both Paris and Sete. For almost all the exhibiting artists this will be their first exhibition in the United States.

What brings the work together, what creates a common bond amongst the 10 exhibiting artists is their connection to a place- Winnipeg. The city celebrates a history of creative energy that is almost legendary as home to the internationally acclaimed Royal Art Lodge collective, film maker Guy Maddin, painters Tim Gardner and Karel Funk, and photographer Laura Letinsky. It could be argued that the geography of the city fosters a united and individualistic sensibility in its inhabitants. Covered in winter by heavy snow Winnipeg is settled on what was once a prehistoric lake; each winter it is erased by snow as if swept clean for renewed emergence.

Two featured photographers are Steve Ackerman and elaine Stocki. Ackerman portrays the local landscape and rough personalities within his community and Stocki's platinum prints depict gymnasts in their own element.
