Thank you to our 2024 judge, Leona Herzog.

Leona Herzog graduated with a BFA (Honours) in 1975 and a Master of Arts with a focus on Curatorial Practises in 2012. As Director/Curator of the Buhler Gallery, St. Boniface Hospital, Winnipeg, from 2016 to 2022, she created notable exhibitions featuring the work of numerous contemporary Canadian artists. A lifelong supporter of the arts and artists, she was instrumental in creating Manitoba Hydro’s collection of contemporary Manitoba artwork on display throughout their Winnipeg head office. Leona has volunteered on many arts boards, including Manitoba Opera and Manitoba Crafts Museum and Library; and now serves as Chair of the Board of Directors for MAWA (Mentoring Artists for Women’s Art) a national feminist arts organization, and on the Advisory Committee of Flash Photographic Festival.

An experienced juror, recent projects include adjudicating the 45th Annual Westman Juried Art Show; and SAQA’s (Studio Art Quilt Associates) national quilt exhibit Renewal.

Her art practise focuses primarily on watercolours and fibres, and she is currently working on curatorial projects that will be exhibited in 2025.

She wishes to congratulate everyone who entered their work into Icelandic Festival of Manitoba Art Show.
