The Winnipeg Art Gallery is waiving admission so you can have a good time on Friday night. No, not tonight. But next Friday.
First Friday Nights will run the first Friday of every month, where complimentary entry will be provided to the galleries beginning at 5 p.m. until 11 p.m.
Casual conversational guided tours are offered at 8 p.m., exploring the WAG’s permanent collection galleries.
“Chagall, Funk, Tunnillie, and Warkov are some of the artists being featured this summer. First Fridays are yet another way for the WAG to engage with wider audiences and inspire the community through art,” said Dr. Stephen Borys, WAG Director and CEO.
First Fridays begin June 3 at the WAG.
What’s on at the WAG?
On view this summer is a stellar line-up of exhibitions. Experience the dreamscapes of Chagall, carvings by renowned Inuit sculptor Oviloo Tunnillie, and paintings by Winnipeg artist Esther Warkov. On June 11, the largest and first true survey of work by Winnipeg’s own Karel Funk will open, along with Qua’yuk tchi’gae’win: Making Good, acknowledging the residential school systems and colonial trauma.
