HAVE FUN, SEE AND BUY ARTWORK…
The event consists of an opening reception Friday, November 14th from 8 to 11 pm to celebrate an evening with amazing art from local Winnipeg and Manitoban artists, as well as artists from across Canada and even international participation. Come see and potientially buy amazing art from Urban Shaman’s Members. Last year we had over 60 individuals from emerging to well established artists submit, and we expect just as much participation, if not more. This event is great for stimulating conversation, getting to know artists in our community of Winnipeg and beyond, enjoying refreshments and snacks including bannock, a DJ dance party, and several gift baskets raffled off to fundraise for the gallery (non-participating artists cover is $5.00 at the door).A great event to find amazing artwork, discover local artists, and come out with a gift for a loved one or maybe just for you!!!
