For over 15 years, Art from the Heart’s Show + Sale has become one of Winnipeg’s most popular art events. This two-day exhibition is an opportunity for inner city and lower income artists to showcase their artwork; it is also an opportunity for Winnipeggers from all neighborhoods to purchase local art, support artists and participate in a positive community-building event.
Exhibiting artists come from diverse cultural backgrounds, artistic practices and experiences. This year’s exhibition will showcase work from over 110 artists. The opening night will have a musical performance by Winnipeg-based Argentinian musician Onna Lou from 6:30-7:15pm. Following that, local DJ chloesupreme will keep the music flowing from 7:30-9pm. You would not want to miss the performances by Studio 393 Break Dancers during her set.
