Winnipeg group for female artists marks milestone
Mentoring Artists for Women’s Art is marking its 30th anniversary of support for female artists, arts writers and curators in Winnipeg.
The group, formed because women were getting fewer shows and teaching positions than men, helps emerging artists gain skills and build their networks.
Celebrations have included a show at the Winnipeg Art Gallery that highlighted the work of mentors and focused attention on Winnipeg’s tradition of feminist art. Some 200 women have participated in the year-long program since 1985.
