WAG Organizing Studio Visit with Winnipeg Artist Tom Lovatt

Winnipeg artist Tom Lovatt is opening his Exchange District studio exclusively for a private visit sponsored by the Winnipeg Art Gallery. The visit takes place at 7pm on Wednesday, April 27.

Advance registration is required by calling 789.0516. Tickets are $20 for WAG members and $25 for non-members.

“The art process begins in the studio,” says WAG Art Educator Anna Wiebe. “But how many of us actually get the chance to visit a studio and discuss the creative process in that personal environment? “

A graduate of the University of Manitoba, Tom Lovatt is one of Winnipeg’s best-known figurative artists. In a nearly 40-year career he has exhibited in many group and solo shows across Canada including the WAG. His work is included in several public and private collections including Investors Group, Great-West Life, the Government of Manitoba, and the WAG.

Approaching its centenary in 2012, the Winnipeg Art Gallery is Canada’s oldest civic art gallery and Manitoba’s leading visual arts institution. With a collection of over 24,000 objects spanning many centuries and cultures – including the world’s largest collection of contemporary Inuit art – the WAG is constantly moving between the historical and the contemporary in an effort to engage a growing public with the power of art in our lives.
