Thank you so much for being a part of the Art Gallery of Southwestern Manitoba community. Your support has allowed us to continue building on the proud history of over 100 years serving the artists and communities of Southwestern Manitoba. You will be excited to hear that this year is shaping up to be a very exciting year, with new leadership and exciting new initiatives on the horizon to help enrich the lives of everyone in the region, and especially those visiting our gallery here in Brandon.
Please take the time today to make your annual contribution to the Art Gallery of Southwestern Manitoba. Your support helps us continue to bring art into the lives of thousands of children, teens, and adults, through our community-based events, classes, and exhibitions. We know that a vibrant cultural environment is an essential part of any thriving community. Together, through our shared passion, we will continue to promote psychological and physical well-being, cultural understanding, quality of life, and expand the mind to find new ways of seeing the world. All through the power of art.
Your support provides these direct benefits:
•Allows us to offer free admission to all
•Brings up to 15 artists annually to Brandon to participate in our vibrant arts scene during openings and local events.
•Directly benefits local artists (over half of our 15 annual exhibitions feature local artists), and brings in the most interesting art that is being made across the country today.
•Provides for fully serviced studios for the many artists who use our Ceramics, Printing, Drawing, Photography, and Painting studios.
•Allows hundreds of children to experience creating with clay; from handbuilding to glazing, and finally taking home their own work of art.
•And much more!
This year we need your support so we can continue to create ways for art to forge understanding among different cultures, develop community, and enrich the lives of children and adults in southwestern Manitoba. Together, we can carry on developing the artist in everyone and bring the joy of communicating through visual language to more children and adults!
