Come visit the Art Gallery of Southwestern Manitoba and partake in our open house! Tour of our six studio classrooms and learn about ceramics, photography, printmaking, painting, drawing, and view demos by our local instructors and artists. Many artists will be present working on their paintings, prints and drawing. See them in action! Ask them anything.
The holiday tradition of the Gala of Gifts will return this year with a unique and beautiful selection of fine craft and artisan works: ceramics, jewellery, painting, weaving, and many more hand crafted treasures by Manitoba’s most accomplished artisans. There will be live entertainment, a Tea Room, and an exclusive workshop for children. Proceeds from the sale will benefit the AGSM’s year-round educational programming for all ages.
If you are a Manitoba artisan who would like to see your work at the Gala of Gifts, a vendor application form is available HERE
Although thoughts of white Christmas are still far away, we are sending you an early reminder that The Tenth Annual Members Show and Sale is coming up again in December. We hope the early notice will inspire you to plan ahead and create new work! The Members Show and Sale is one of our favourite exhibitions because we get to see what our members have been up to over the year. Each artist member is entitled to submit up to three works, which will be displayed for sale in the Main Gallery between December 4 and December 19, 2014. There is no fee to participate; all you need is to be a member in good standing as of November 27, 2014. This yearly fundraising initiative benefits both The Art Gallery of Southwestern Manitoba’s and our artist members.
