Back in October, 2016, we were interviewed about the Daniel Johnston exhibition at the gallery and how to make a commercial gallery viable in a smaller market without compromising creative integrity. One excerpt here, but visit their website to read the full article by Caoimhe Morgan-Feir.
"...these tendencies aren’t deterring gallerists in cities across the country from putting on relatively niche shows. Take Winnipeg gallery Lisa Kehler Art and Projects’s recent presentation of work by cult musician and artist Daniel Johnston, whose drawings, created with marker, reference popular culture and dwell on his recurring theme of unrequited love.
“I was looking to bring Johnston’s work into Winnipeg and into the gallery, without really even knowing if there was a market for it. But it’s something that I’m so passionate about, that when I focus on the education aspect of the show, it’s almost creating a market for it,” said Kehler at the time."
