In spite of the global pandemic Manitobans still exhibit their art online at artgallery.manitobaartsnetwork.ca.
This Fall, the online world will have the opportunity to take in the best contemporary visual art from across Manitoba. The Manitoba Rural Northern Juried Art Show (MRNJAS) features 56 artists from the Central, Eastman, Interlake, Northern, Parkland and Westman Regions.
The Manitoba Rural and Northern Juried Art Show (MRNJAS) stems from the desire to bring artists and their art together. It highlights the work of artists across Manitoba. We have broken the MRNJAS exhibit into six regions highlighting artists residing in them. Communities across Manitoba and beyond have an opportunity to browse, vote and purchase art from artists. Artwork cover a diverse range of media, including painting, drawing, photography, sculpture, ceramics, mixed media and textiles.
From September 3 through to October 20 the public will be invited to vote for artworks in the exhibition. The Zoom launch party will be held on October 22nd. We will announce the voter’s choice awards based on how many votes were received via public voting through the site. The MRNJAS exhibit runs until January 4, 2021. After, the online gallery will continue to host, highlight and promote rural Manitoban Artists.
The MRNJAS on October 22 zoom launch party replaces the opening reception to Manitoba Showcase 2020. Manitoba Showcase, a three-day conference highlighting visual and performing artists is cancelled due to the global pandemic.
