The Westman Juried Art Show returns this weekend with a showing in Killarney.
This year will be the 43rd year for the Show.
Chris Moore is with the Arts West Council and she says people can come out and view the art work on Sunday. “It’s happening at the Legion Hall in Killarney and it’s an exhibition of art work from artists who come from across the Westman region.”
A total of 75 pieces of art will be on display including some work done by area youth.
“It’s terrific to be back in person that’s for sure. We’ve been looking forward to this for more than two years. We’re looking forward to seeing everybody and the work they’ve done over the past year” said Moore.
On Friday volunteers do all the work to set up the art show. On Saturday two jurors will view the work and write up critiques for each and every piece. “They’ll select the 20 pieces for the travelling gallery and the 10 works that will go to the northern and rural virtual show hosted by the Manitoba Arts Network.”
On Sunday the Legion Hall in Killarney will open its doors to the public for viewing of the art work. “We’ll start at 1:30 with an opening ceremony at 2:00pm and the show will continue until around 3:30.”
Officials aren’t sure how many people will attend the show. Chris Moore says they usually attract about 150 people but this time around she isn’t sure how many will come through the door. “
“We’ll have to wait and see but with the pandemic you never know. We do have a masking requirement to try and prevent any covid outbreak.
