Here in the Exchange, there’s always something going on! From dining, to shopping or grabbing a show, here’s what goes on your calendar this week.
Women in Sport @ Manitoba Sports Hall of Fame (145 Pacific Ave)
On now until August
Women in Sport features the women who wrote the history the Sports Hall of Fame at the Sport For Life Centre preserves and celebrates. From the early pioneers through to the explosion of female sport after the Second World War, to the revolutionary 1960s, to some of today’s most legendary Manitoban athletes, this exhibit showcases them all.
Visit sportmanitoba.ca for more information.
Mother Earth @ Mayberry Fine Art (212 McDermot Ave)
On now until March 23
Working in oils and acrylics, Terry Watkinson salutes the wonderful country north of Lake Superior and west to the prairies – a territory that is underrepresented in Canadian landscape painting but possessed of a strange fertile beauty. The paintings are not representations of specific places, just reminiscences of time spent in Winnipeg, Thunder Bay, Nipigon and points north.

Second Story Window @ Cre8ery (125 Adelaide Street)
Opens Friday, March 15
Potter, teacher and studio artist Noella Hanan lives on 100 acres of prairie and bush with her husband outside of Anola, Manitoba. Her artist statement for her show, Second Story Window, reads:
“Second Story Window is an expression of my story and the stories around me. The second story is where the great or grim realities of experience metaphorically reside. It is visible, however, making our way to the second story is often by invitation only – a place reserved. We see the light at night with curtains drawn or undrawn and may catch a glimpse. When we are privileged to join in the view from the inside of the second story window, we see the world in a whole new way.
And so the stories go; we are surrounded by stories. Some are loud and personal. Others quiet and unfamiliar. Second story – Story Window. Whichever way, we are connected through our stories.”
