At the AGSM, we know that our members help keep art alive and thriving in Brandon. Without a strong and active base, we wouldn't be what we are... an exciting and engaging contemporary Art Gallery in the middle of the prairies. We pride ourselves on exhibiting world class art from around the globe, and we recognize that we have our own pool of world class artists right in our backyard. Be it painting, drawing, print making, ceramics, sculpture or whatever other media, we have overflowing talent in our members. For the past 14 years, we have happily welcomed our member artists, established and emerging alike, to exhibit and sell their works in what has become a wonderful tradition known as the annual Members' Show. Featured in the Main Gallery, this exhibition is also a great opportunity for Westman residents to come witness the incredible talent, as well as purchase original artworks in a fun, casual, and affordable environment.
With the Members’ Show, our goal is to celebrate, promote, and support the artist members of the AGSM. Artists set the sale price for their works and choose the amount of each sale they’d like to be given back to the gallery (0%, 25%, 50%, 75%, 100%). Proceeds from this event support the amazing programs, classes, and events that are offered year round at the AGSM.
We will launch the 14th Annual Members' Show on Thursday, November 8th at 7:30PM with a public opening reception. We invite you and your family to come enjoy art, food, and celebration of community.
