The Art Gallery of Southwestern Manitoba is excited to present its annual Gala of Gifts, taking place on Friday, November 25th from noon-6pm and Saturday, November 26th from 10am – 5pm. This year’s event and gallery fundraiser will showcase 25 artists and artisans in the main gallery. Each artist from all over the province will have a wide selection of hand-made and finely crafted gifts to purchase for the upcoming holiday season.
The remaining gallery space will be transformed into a winter wonderland, complete with a holiday café with catering by Ukrainian Cuisine and various baked goods and dainties; a special gift raffle; Santa's workshop for children; and a cash bar featuring delicious candy cane cosmopolitans. New this year is a special notecard fundraiser; a variety pack of notecards, each card created by a local Brandon artist specifically for the AGSM and available to purchase for a limited time. Music will be provided by the third annual Brandon TUBAChristmas, featuring dozens of tuba players filling the gallery with holiday music and inviting all to join in for a cheerful sing-a-long. Admission for adults is just $2, children 12 and under are $1 (infants free).
