The Manitoba Rural & Northern Juried Art Show – Online
September 3 - October 20Free
Despite the global pandemic, the online world will have the opportunity to take in the best contemporary visual art from across Manitoba this September. This year’s Manitoba Rural Northern Juried Art Show will feature 56 artists from the Central, Eastman, Interlake, Northern, Parkland, and Westman areas of the province, but, unlike previous years, will be hosted entirely online.
The Manitoba Rural and Northern Juried Art Show stems from the desire to bring artists and their art together across geographic and cultural boundaries. Artworks cover a diverse range of media, including painting, drawing, photography, sculpture, ceramics, mixed media and textiles. Highlighting the work of artists across Manitoba, this year’s exhibition will replace Manitoba Art Network’s cancelled Manitoba Showcase 2020. Audiences will now have access to view the artwork online and purchase works 24/7 with an entirely new and innovative program to Manitoba Artwork’s 2020 programming that will reach a larger audience.
“We have a great arts scene here in Winnipeg,” says exhibit coordinator Nicole Shimonek, “but how often do we get to see any of the great art being produced in Manitoba outside of Winnipeg?” Shimonek continues, “We at Manitoba Arts Network are thrilled to be able to bridge that gap.”
From September 3rd through to October 20th the public will be invited to vote for artworks in the exhibition. The Zoom launch party will be held on October 22nd, the original date of the Showcase 2020 Opening Reception. Manitoba Arts Network will announce the voter’s choice awards based on how many votes were received via public voting through the site.
