The Winter Festival Art Show & Sale is the premier community art event of northern Saskatchewan. In this exhibition, hundreds of artworks by emerging and professional artists from across the province are shown at the Mann Art Gallery. Each year, a guest arts professional curates the exhibition and designates awards that are sponsored by local businesses and organizations. The exhibition is unveiled and awards are presented at an opening gala reception, followed the next day by an in-depth curatorial walk through and talk. The Winter Festival exhibition is a highly-anticipated tradition that showcases the incredible level of artistic production in our community.
