The 17th annual Manitoba Arts Networks Rural and Northern Juried Art Show gets underway Tuesday in Winnipeg. It features selected works submitted to Regional Juried Art Shows held across Manitoba each year. Among the artists in this year’s show are five northern artists with three from the Flin Flon area Elizabeth Fitzsimmons, Tamra Martin and Brandy Bloxom and two from Thompson Teresa Burrows and Adira Carter.
The Network states the show provides an opportunity for artists in the north and rural regions to present their work to an urban audience and gives Winnipeg audiences an idea of the scope of work being created outside the Perimeter. The show is free and starts Tuesday at the Buhler Gallery at St. Boniface Hospital and will be open Monday to Friday from 10 to 8 and Saturday and Sunday from 12 to 4 until September 30th with an artist’s reception Saturday September 8th from 1 to 3:30.
