Westman Juried Art Show, Virden, Manitoba, April 18-20, 2013
The 34th annual Westman Juried Art Show was held in Virden at the Sacred Heart Parish Centre. The show included artwork in a variety of media submitted by artists from across the Westman region including an impressive selection in the youth category. Artist jurors, Cam Forbes and Michael Boss provided all of the participating artists with written critiques and chose winners in a variety of categories. Jurors also elected 20 works from the show to be included in a travelling gallery that will tour the region throughout 2013-14. The exhibition opened with a reception attended by many of the participating artists and local community members.
“There are many talented artists in the Westman area, each interpreting their own local experience. The Juried art shows are an opportunity for these artists to share their work with each other and the wider community, a chance for us all to discover and establish our collective voice.” … Cam Forbes (Juror)
