A friend invited me to an art show recently where she and a few Winnipeg artists put on a very interesting exhibition celebrating the Slavik folklore witch Baba Yaga. It wasn't your typical art exhibition. We had a tour guide who brought us into the mysterious "fairytale forest" of art while telling us a story. At the end of the tour we were brought to Baba Yaga's attic where each of us sat with her individually while she unraveled the mysteries of our life. The exhibition was a sneak peak of the Manitoba Goddess Festival to be held from Aug 31- Sept 3, 2012 in St. Nobert. Tickets are on sale at their website.
