Remembering Alan Small

We have lost a beloved member of the Manitoba arts community, Alan Small.

As a Journalist for the Winnipeg Free Press, Alan dedicated over 22 years of his life to championing the arts and sharing stories that enriched our cultural landscape. From his beginnings on the night copy desk to his role as editor of the Arts and Life section, Alan’s passion for storytelling and commitment to excellence shone through in every article he penned.

Alan was incredibly supportive of the Gallery. We could count on him at every media event, exhibition opening, and special event. In his feature on the opening of Qaumajuq, he beautifully captured the essence of the Gallery, describing it as a beacon of light in a year overshadowed by darkness amidst the challenges of the pandemic.

Alan’s impact on the Manitoba arts scene is immeasurable, and his legacy will continue to inspire us all. Our thoughts are with his loved ones during this difficult time. Alan’s passion and dedication will be dearly missed.
