The Mann Art Gallery, the City of Prince Albert, and all of the sponsors of the 20 awards thank all 136 artists for entering their 135 artworks to the 44th Annual Winter Festival Art Show & Sale! Each year, this show & sale of the members of the Mann Art Gallery is a highlight of the North-Central Saskatchewan visual art scene. Any artist living in Saskatchewan who purchases a 2020 Membership to the Mann Art Gallery ($15-$20) is eligible to enter and sell 1 artwork, provided it meets the Eligibility Criteria. This year, artists from Regina, Swift Current, Weyburn, Humboldt, Melfort, La Ronge, Air Ronge, Livelong, Holbein, and Leask, in addition to Prince Albert, participated. Generous local businesses and arts organizations are the sponsors for the prizes awarded at the Opening Reception & Awards Night. The final award, the Guy Rutter Memorial Award, is the famous People's Choice Award. Each visitor may cast 1 ballot only during the course of the Winter Festival exhibition (until March 21) for their favourite piece, and on Saturday, March 22 we will announce the winner.

Congratulations to all participants in the exhibition! Thank you for sharing your work with us. Thank you to the sponsors who support our art community in so many ways throughout the year. Thank you to our Media Sponsor, the Prince Albert Daily Herald, for their advertising sponsorship.
