COVID-19 Update

Dear Friends,

To help prevent the spread of COVID-19, we have decided to temporarily close the Winnipeg Art Gallery to the public, effective Saturday, March 14, 2020 until further notice.

This includes upcoming events, public programs, and studio classes. The WAG will continue to monitor the situation and assess the need for continued closure. For the most current information please visit

Update on Wag@TheForks Location: Due to the evolving COVID-19 situation the shop WAG@TheForks has temporarily closed. We will share an update as soon as anything changes.

Your WAG membership will be extended by the length of the closure. Thank you for your support!

Should you have any questions, please email us at Our team will make every effort to respond to inquiries in a timely fashion. We appreciate your understanding and patience during this time.

Thank you for being part of the WAG community. We look forward to welcoming you back to the Gallery soon.

    In light of this ongoing worldwide health pandemic, will the WAG shop at the Forks will temporarily close too until further notice, once this current situation subsides?
