Exhibit at Manitoba Arts Network through the Exhibit Rental Program

Art Gallery

Why exhibit at this gallery:

Manitoba Arts Network (MAN) is a non-profit charitable organization that provides rural and Northern Manitoban artists with an excellent opportunity to showcase their works in Winnipeg. Conveniently situated in the dynamic neighbourhood of the Exchange District, the gallery is surrounded by other art galleries, boutiques, restaurants, and cafes that attract numerous visitors, particularly on weekends. Moreover, our gallery is located beside Aceartinc., facilitating foot traffic between the two spaces.

First Fridays

The Manitoba Arts Network’s gallery is an active participant in First Fridays in the Exchange. This event takes place on the first Friday of every month when galleries, studios, shops, and various venues extend their opening hours into the evening, offering a range of activities and events for those visiting the Exchange. With over 100 people attending each First Friday, this provides a significant opportunity to increase the exposure of your exhibit at our gallery.

Rental of Gallery:

Exhibit rental times starts at a minimum of 3 weeks – rentals can be longer than 3 weeks. The gallery space doubles as MAN’s office space so staff will be onsite each day.

Gallery Hours:

The gallery will be open to the public 12pm – 5pm Tuesday-Saturday. The gallery will be closed Sundays and Mondays.
