Lake water is Gayle’s lifeblood, splashing images of lake, sky and land as it flows onto
canvas through her brush. “I feel bliss wash over me when in my studio; it’s where my
heart sings” she says about her creative space. It took almost a year to turn a neglected
cottage in Winnipeg Beach into Studio 410 – a venue dedicated to art.
From a childhood cabin in Matlock to summer liveaboard boater and finally lakeside
artist, Gayle’s journey has been a lifetime connected to Lake Winnipeg. Her award-
winning paintings, playful pottery and experiments grace homes across the continent.
Reflecting Gayle’s personality, her works are energetic, confident and warm but have a
healthy spattering of playfulness. Acrylic, watercolour, and clay lure her to brush and
squish the day away.
Surfing on a wave of new tech knowledge, Gayle has plans to launch online workshops,
short videos, e-sales of works, and a renewed presence on social media. Follow her
journey on Facebook: Studio410 Visual Arts by Gayle Halliwell.
Gayle is an active member of The WAVE Artists’ Studio Tour, cre8ery gallery, the Gimli
Art Club, Creative Manitoba, and The Gwen Fox Gallery. Studio 410 is open year-round
for events, workshops, and by appointment, see www.gaylehalliwell.com.
Gayle Halliwell is a graduate of the AMYC Master Class and the Interlake Artists’
Mentorship, and has completed scores of learning experiences during her
transformation from educational leader to lakeside artist. She launched her professional
practice in 2008 and opened Studio 410 in 2012.
Gayle’s works have been in shows with cre8ery, the Winnipeg Art Gallery, the Manitoba
Society of Artists, Gwen Fox Gallery, Gimli Art Club & Gallery, and the New Iceland
Heritage Museum. Her works are in collections across North America, and her well-
known art cards have found their way around the world.
Gayle has hosted numerous art events at Studio 410 including First Fridays at the
Beaches and Culture Days. Guest artists, music sessions, book launches, workshops,
celebrations, and shows have brought a range of people into the space. In 2022, and as
public health guidelines allow, Studio 410 will again open its doors to people and all
