ART TALK/ART WALK: ‘Why Winnipeg?’

Brian Timmerman


Dinner and a lively, informal talk followed by a guided walk through Exchange Galleries & Studios. What does Winnipeg mean, for artists who come here, for artists who stay, and for artists who leave? Previewing some of the topics that will be raised at the Centre for Contemporary Canadian Art’s 20th-anniversary symposium (November 3-5), we will be talking to Simon Hughes, a born-and-bred Winnipeg artist, and Bev Pike, an Alberta-raised painter who made the deliberate decision to come here in the 1980s, about their city and their art.
