The Central Region Juried Art Exhibit is organized by the Central Cultural Council which is comprised of representatives from the Tiger Hills Arts Association, Golden Prairie Arts Council, Portage & District Arts Council, Pembina Hills Arts Council and Recreation and Regional Services Central Region. The Central Region Juried Art Exhibit is open to artists & artisans of all levels aged 15 years or older who are residents of the Central Region. The CRJAE aims to promote artists within the central region by providing them with the opportunity to exhibit their work in a professional setting, gain exposure to the general public, as well as have their work seen in within their local communities. Artists in rural Manitoba often have limited access to development opportunities and this exhibit is a wonderful occasion to receive professional feedback on their work. Each piece of artwork is juried and on display to the public for one evening during the “37th Annual Central Region Juried Art Exhibit”, 40-45 artworks are also selected by the jurors for the touring portion of the CRJAE exhibit. The touring portion of the exhibit will be on display at the Tiger Hills Arts Association for the month of May, and will then travel to the 3 other councils. The Central Region Juried Art Exhibit is supported by the Manitoba Arts Council and the Province of Manitoba.
