More About this Event

The Art Gallery of Southwestern Manitoba is pleased to announce the return of their annual
arts and crafts sale. Now in its 34th year, The Gala of Gifts, a unique holiday market, will feature creators
from all across the Westman region on Friday, November 25th and Saturday, 26th.
New this year is a SoupArt Bowl fundraiser event, where participants will have the opportunity to sample
soups from local vendors like Komfort Kitchen, Benny’s Restaurant, and The Dock on Princess, and to take
home a one-of-a-kind ceramic bowl, handmade by members of the AGSM community. Tickets are currently
being sold on the AGSM website or via phone for $45 each, perfect for staff appreciation closer to the
holidays.
This year’s event will showcase 17 Westman-based artists and artisans in the Main Gallery. Returning
patrons and first-timers alike will be delighted to find a wide variety of items for sale, including honey and
bee products from Raven Creek Farm, stylish handmade moccasins and mukluks from Dianna’s Creations,
one-of-a-kind oil paintings and pencil drawings by Marin Curtis Fine Arts, and much more!
Visitors will be welcomed into the AGSM, which will be transformed into a decorated Winter Forest,
by a keen group of volunteers. The youngest family members can satisfy their creativity in the children’s
studio during two clay classes on Friday evening starting at either 4:00 or 5:45PM, and Saturday morning at
10:00 or 11:30AM. The Gala of Gifts would not be complete without the return of our raffle, where every
ticket purchased is a chance to win one of many items donated from our vendors, as well as other exciting
prizes!
To get everyone in the mood of the season, there will be local music. Special thanks to our generous
sponsor, Sobey’s South.
Admission is just $2, and children 5 & under are free.
