An incredible variety of art by some of the region’s best artists will once again grace the Art Gallery of Southwestern Manitoba’s walls this holiday season. Opening on December 4 at 7:30 PM, Fay Jelly, Weiming Zhao, Curt Shoultz, Marg Stewart, and over 30 other artists will reveal their newest and never before seen paintings, photographs, and ceramics in the Tenth Annual Members Show and Sale. Some of the pieces in the exhibition present a completely new direction for these artists, such as Curt Shoultz’s vibrant landscapes of New Mexico, and Chris Reid’s paintings of the Drumheller.
“I’m always blown away by the diversity of work in this annual exhibition. From intricate colour pencil drawings by Marg Stewart to a stunning portrait of a lynx by renowned nature photographer Brian Milne, the show is a testament to the vibrancy of our local arts community,” says the AGSM’s Curator, Natalia Lebedinskaia.
All works are framed originals of different scale, only $50 to $500, with 75% of the sales going to the artists. The remaining 25% of the sales will go towards the AGSM’s educational programs.
