Sneak Peek! Into the Light: LL FitzGerald
Today we would have opened our newest exhibition Into the Light: LL FitzGerald, organized by the WAG in partnership with the McMichael Canadian Art Collection. While we have to wait to share the show with you in person, we’re thrilled to give you this sneak peek in the meantime!
This exhibition features more than 200 artworks by Manitoba’s member of the Group of Seven. Learn more here. We look forward to opening our doors soon and welcoming you back!
Big thanks to lead sponsors Canada Life and Power Corporation of Canada.

Can’t wait to see it all in real life. Looks amazing. Thanks for staying in touch.
Loved FitzGerald during my 25 years of volunteering at the WAG and hope the show is on when the Inuit Gallery opens as l hope to fly back to Winnipeg from Vancouver when it opens in the Fall. The WAG is my favourite gallery in Canada.
Thank you so much for sharing the LL FitzGerald show in video at WAG. I have an Art Touring Group in Guelph and I took them to see the show at the McMichael. IT was superb but I wish that I could see the treasures at the WAG again. I miss the WAG! Congratulations!!!
Thank you for your support, Heather!
Fitzgerald is one of my favourite artists and I was really looking forward to the exhibition. This is a wonderful little video and the background music is lovely. I’ll enjoy this many times while I’m waiting to see his art at the gallery. Thank you for this little gift to cheer us up while we “isolate”.
So happy you enjoyed the video!
Fitzgerald exhibit looks amazing – can’t wait to see it close up – given the pandemic, might exhibit be extended beyond August?
Hi William, thank you for your interest! We will announce any date changes as soon as possible on our website. Please check back in the coming weeks!
Thank you! That was beautiful.
Thank you for providing this wonderful gift during uncertain times.
Loved the sneak peek and look forward to seeing it “up close and personal.” Stay well everyone.
I have always loved LL Fitzgerald’s work. A very nice video presentation and can not wait to see it in person. Thank you ever so much. Stay safe!
Thank you Scott, we hope you can see the exhibit in person soon!
Looking forward to the Fitzgerald exhibition.
Hopefully you can see it soon at the WAG!
