The Manitoba Rural and Northern Art Show is juried by a panel of professional artists. A cash prize is awarded to first, second, and third place winners. Through events and programs like the Manitoba Rural and Northern Art Show, the Manitoba Arts Network connects communities from across Manitoba.
The Manitoba Rural and Northern Juried Art Show is an annual exhibition that highlights the creative accomplishments of rural artists across Manitoba. The exhibit introduces Winnipeg audiences to the artistic work generated by visual artists from beyond the perimeter (Eastman, Westman, Central, Parkland, Northern and Interlake Regions). A diverse range of media (painting, drawing, photography, sculpture, ceramics and textiles) is exhibited. Artists are invited to participate after being selected as winners in their regions’ juried art show.
