Connecting Artists and Art Lovers for Over 20 Years!
Art Expo is the largest professional art show and sale in Manitoba, held annually at Assiniboia Downs in Winnipeg. Visitors can meet and visit with up to 40 participating artists at their individual booths showing and selling their art, including paintings, prints, books, sculpture, glass, photography, and textiles.
Art Expo is a project of the Assiniboia Group of Artists Cooperative. This co-op manages participation in Art Expo through a jurying process, ensuring that Art Expo is a venue for serious local Manitoban artists producing quality work. The event helps introduce talented new artists to the public, as well as serving as a marketplace for those with a higher profile. Over 200 artists have shown their work at Art Expo since it was created.
Many talented individuals have stepped forward since the organization’s inception in 1996, serving as directors to provide the necessary guidance. At present, the administration is led by Vice President Anthony Steffes, a noted abstract artist and teacher, and Hubert Theroux, who serves as President of the Board of Directors. Theroux, who has made his living through his art for over 25 years, also organizes the complicated logistics for the artists’ booths and leads the set up.
The Assiniboia Group of Artists Cooperative invites new artists to join in the annual Art Expo event. Find out how to apply here.
