WInnipeg, Manitoba, January 17, 2018: The Winnipeg Art Gallery (WAG), in partnership with the Assiniboine Park Conservancy (APC), is pleased to announce four new exhibitions at WAG@ThePark, located inside The Pavilion. Curated by the WAG, artwork is drawn from both the APC and WAG collections. Entry to the exhibition galleries is free!

Ningiukulu Teevee: Kinngait Stories
January 13–July 22 • John P. Crabb Gallery • WAG@ThePark, 2nd floor
Curated by Darlene Coward Wight
A vibrant WAG show recently on view at the Embassy of Canada in Washington, DC. Twenty-eight graphic drawings explore the relationship between abstraction and representation along with photographs documenting the artist, her work, and her home community of Cape Dorset.

Phillips in Winter
January 13–July 22 • John P. Crabb Gallery • WAG@ThePark, 2nd floor
Curated by Andrew Kear
From the wind-carved Prairies to the clean-aired Rockies, Phillips’ snowy portraits of the winter months offer wide-ranging perspectives of the coldest season.

Eyre + Burtynsky: Vistas
February 3–August 12 • Ivan Eyre Gallery • WAG@ThePark, 3rd floor
Curated by Andrew Kear
Large-scale works by each artist bring into focus two versions of the landscape vista. Ivan Eyre’s painting and graphic work is typified by the artist’s subjective re-imagining of the world, while Edward Burtynsky’s colourful photographs record landscapes of the here-and-now with a stark realism.

Through the Eyes of a Child
March 24–May 13 • The Community Gallery • WAG@ThePark, 2rd floor
Annual exhibition celebrating the artwork created by young artists enrolled in WAG Studio classes. When the creativity of youth is encouraged, young people develop an appreciation of art and culture, and grow to better understand its value to society.

WAG@The Park in The Pavilion is located at 55 Pavilion Crescent, in the heart of Assiniboine Park. The galleries are open daily from 9am to 4pm.
