The exhibit introduces Winnipeg audiences to the artistic work generated by visual artists from beyond the perimeter (Eastman, Westman, Central, Parkland, Northern and Interlake Regions). A diverse range of media (painting, drawing, photography, sculpture, ceramics and textiles) is exhibited. Artists are invited to participate after being selected as winners in their regions’ juried art show.
The Manitoba Rural and Northern Art Show is juried by a panel of professional artists. A cash prize is awarded to first, second and third place winners.

Many artists come from as far as Flin Flon and The Pas to attend the opening reception and subsequent exhibition dates.
Info for Artists: The Manitoba Rural and Northern Juried Art Show
The Manitoba Rural & Northern Juried Art Show is a provincial level exhibition that celebrates the artistic achievements of artists from Manitoba's rural and northern communities.
The opportunity to participate in the show is extended to artists whose artworks placed first in their category, or whose artworks have otherwise been selected by jury at one of the Regional Juried Art Shows that take place annually throughout the province.
The organizers of each Regional Juried Show submit the names of award winning/selected artists to the Manitoba Arts Network with these artworks eligible to represent their respective regions at the Rural & Northern Show. In late spring/early summer, all selected artists are sent registration information and can register to participate if they so choose.
If you participated in a Regional Juried Show and your artwork either placed First in its category or was otherwise selected by jury to represent your region (this varies from region to region), then your regional show organizers will provide us with your information.
In late spring/early summer all selected artists will be contacted by both email and letter mail with information on how to register for the Manitoba Rural & Northern Juried Show.
In order to participate, all selected artists are asked to pay a registration fee* of $25 which provides for the following:
*Current MAN members in good standing are exempt from paying the registration fee as are youth participants.
