Carl Beam & Ron Paley
There's lots happening at the Winnipeg Art Gallery, located at 300 Memorial Boulevard.
Free public opening of Carl Beam exhibition
Wednesday, June 29 · 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Carl Beam is considered one of Canada's leading contemporary Aboriginal artists.
His work bridges the philosophies and traditions of both Western and Anishinabek worlds.
The North American Iceberg was championed as the National Gallery of Canada’s first acquisition of an artwork created by a contemporary First Nations artist. It has since become recognized as a coming of age for contemporary Indigenous art in Canada.
This is a great show for us to have on view all summer!
Jazz on the Rooftop - The Ron Paley Big Band
Thursday, June 30 · 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm
If it's summer in Winnipeg, it must be time for the WAG's Jazz on the Rooftop!
And who better to open our 34th season than The Ron Paley Big Band.
Your ticket allows you free entrance to the Gallery all that day.
As well as great music, the evening includes a delicous BBQ by Storm, cash bar (with or without the BBQ).
What a fabulous way to spend a summer evening!
