MRNJAS features 56 artists from the Central, Eastman, Interlake, Northern, Parkland and Westman Regions.
The exhibition 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.
