The closing reception of Winnipeg’s first Flash Photography Festival is on October 27.
The festival featured 50 photographers at over 30 venues across the city during the month of October. Shutterbugs honed their craft and further promoted art and design. The majority of artworks were displayed in restaurants, coffee shops and stores throughout downtown Winnipeg.
“The festival has been a really great experience in giving local artists a space to display their craft, but also for participating venues who often saw increased foot traffic,” said Stefano Grande, executive director of the Downtown Winnipeg BIZ.
Leif Norman, the festival’s executive director, says the reception at Rudy’s Eat and Drink on Graham Avenue will be a great opportunity for photographers to meet people who have admired their work over the last month, as well as to sell some pieces.
“Photographers, venue owners and people who have taken in what the festival has to offer have been excited and incredibly supportive. It’s been a great experience all-around,” Norman said.
The reception begins at 7 p.m. on Monday at Rudy’s, located in Manitoba Hydro Place.
