New ‘BIOS’ Exhibit to Open at Assiniboine Park

BIOS Exhibit - Assiniboine ParkA new exhibit opening at the Pavilion Gallery at Assiniboine Park will feature the work of two wildlife biologists.

BIOS opens Sunday, April 12 and was created by local husband-and-wife duo Meg Hainstock and Dr. Stephen Petersen.

Petersen is head of conservation and research at the Assiniboine Park Zoo, while Hainstock is a national conservation biologist at Ducks Unlimited Canada.

“We are especially excited to have a show in a setting like Assiniboine Park, which contains the natural areas and animals that have inspired the artwork in the show,” said Petersen.

“There is an added connection that the Pavilion Gallery holds an amazing collection of woodcut prints by Walter J. Phillips — an artist who has inspired both of us.”

The exhibit will run until May 9 in the Clarence Tillenius Gallery on the second floor of the Pavilion Gallery Museum. An opening reception will take place on Saturday from 6-10 p.m.

The museum is open free of charge daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
