In 2016 the Assiniboine Park Conservancy and Winnipeg Art Gallery inaugurated an exciting three-year partnership: WAG@ThePark features Gallery-curated exhibitions at The Pavilion, drawn primarily from the APC collection, as well as from the WAG collection. The partnership enhances community art appreciation and audience access to the work of living and historical Canadian artists. WAG@ThePark also marks the reopening of the Pavilion’s newly renovated third-floor galleries. Entry to the galleries is free. The following exhibits are currently on view:
Third Floor • Ivan Eyre Gallery
Wasteland Dreamland: Early Works by Ivan Eyre, 1957-1969
The Pavilion houses the largest collection of artwork by Ivan Eyre, one of Canada’s most esteemed artists. This exhibition showcases paintings, drawings, and sculptures completed during Eyre’s first decade of creative production.
Second Floor • John P. Crabb Gallery and The Community Gallery
John P. Crabb Gallery
This exhibit pairs the work of well-known historical and contemporary Manitoba artists, W.J. Phillips and Marcel Dzama, highlighting subtle, and the not so subtle differences in the way they each conceive and represent nature as a creative subject. Curated by Andrew Kear.
