WAG Art Instructors Showing Off Work in Exhibition

By Sarah Klein

Art instructors at the Winnipeg Art Gallery will have the opportunity to showcase their work next month at a public viewing.

Instructors in the WAG’s Studio Programs are all practicing artists who teach hundreds of students each year enrolled in the gallery’s classes.

The exhibition will be available to the public beginning Thursday, August 5 at 7 p.m. in the WAG’s Studio Building at the corner of St. Mary Avenue and Memorial Boulevard.

The Studio Programs of the Winnipeg Art Gallery is the largest of its kind in Canada offering a variety of art classes for people of all ages and levels.

“Most of our instructors have been with us for many years,” said Art Educator Michael Boss, Head of Studio Programs. “They bring to their work a wide range of experience and backgrounds as members of artist-run centres, actors, administrators, and designers. All these skills go into their teaching and their ability to connect with the students, to convey their knowledge, and to bring out their students’ artistic best.”

The show will run until August 26. The public can view it Tuesday to Friday from noon to 4 p.m.
