WAG’s Through the Eyes of a Child Exhibition Will Bring a Smile to Your Face

Each fall and winter hundreds of children and teens enjoy the challenge and delight of creating art through the Winnipeg Art Gallery’s WAG Studio programs. And each spring the Gallery mounts an exhibition of their work—several hundred talented young artists are represented in either solo or group works in a wide range of media. Through the Eyes of a Child opens at the Gallery on March 29, continuing until May 11. Ranging in ages from 5 to 17, the young artists come from all across the city and reflect a wide array of cultural backgrounds and traditions.

“The kids just let their imaginations run riot in class and the result is an exhibition that brings a smile to our visitors’ faces,” says Michael Boss, Head of WAG Studio.  “Staff, instructors, members of the arts community, and, of course, proud parents, are invariably delighted by the outpouring of energy, skill, and imagination that characterizes this exhibition. For many of the young artists this will be the first time their work has ever been presented in a public forum. This adds to the excitement generated by the explosion of creativity that takes place in our studios.”

Registration is on now for spring classes for children and adults; spring break art camps; and summer art camps. Visit wag.ca for more information or call 204.789.1766.

Through the Eyes of a Child is sponsored by Great-West Life, and supported by the Winnipeg Art Gallery Volunteer Associates and Winnipeg School Division.

The Winnipeg Art Gallery is a cultural advocate – a lens and forum – helping people see and experience more through art. Playing a vital role in the community, engaging and enriching people of all ages and backgrounds through art and culture, the Winnipeg Art Gallery thrives as a creative, innovative, and accessible place for learning, discovery and inspiration.
