Art*Scape Fine Art/ Fine Craft at Winnipeg Beach

Back by Popular Demand for Season Two!

July 2, 2015



Winnipeg Beach's exciting new pop-up gallery, Art*Scape Fine Art/Fine Craft is back by popular demand for a second season this summer! It is bursting with stunning new works of art by many new and returning artists. The gallery brings a vibrant, diverse and thriving culture of art to beautiful Winnipeg Beach. An artist-run collective, it is made up of 23 Manitoba artists who are passionate about creating. In the relaxed atmosphere of our gallery shop you will find imaginative paintings, dramatic photography, dazzling jewelry, beautiful ceramics, functional pottery and colourful fibre art. Artworks for the collector, unique pieces for the home decorator, as well as distinctive gifts and cards for every occasion fill the dynamic displays. Discover innovative works made with beach pebbles, mirrors, gesso, willow wood, recycled silverware and paper - accessible art for everyone!


Art*Scape has THE BEST location! It is just a short, scenic drive north of Winnipeg, on the historic Boardwalk and sandy beach, and a leisurely stroll to restaurants and summer attractions. Stop in at the Teahouse & Dessert Shop - Amma's satellite location, adjacent to Art*Scape.



The spacious Provincial Park with its magnificent old trees is shady and cool, a tranquil place to relax to the sounds and beauty of the lake, and a source of inspiration for the artists. Take in a free Saturday evening concert at the Bandstand, visit the ice-cream parlour and old-fashioned pinball arcade, view the iconic piers, marina, and historic water tower... the list of activities to enjoy is endless.



Watercolour Artist Monika Hansen, remarked, "I am so thrilled to be working in such a beautiful gallery with so many inspiring artists. This truly is a group effort and it is gratifying to hear the wonderful comments from the customers. They are impressed with the quality of the art they find here."



"I agree, they are thrilled that we opened up shop here in Winnipeg Beach and they are so happy that we are back for a second season. Many are astounded when they walk in for the first time, not expecting a gallery like this at the beach," added Pottery Artist Tanis Bannister.



"All the artists have worked hard on this," added Pebble Artist Germana Stangherlin. "From pitching in to rent the space, painting the walls, providing the display furniture, creating the art, and manning the store seven days a week, it is a real labour of love. But the comments we get from the customers make it all worth it! 



Come see for yourself what everyone is talking about, drive out to Art*Scape this summer! Be warmly greeted by the artists, enter the free monthly draws for artwork, take home a stunning conversation piece, buy that special gift, and start a collection of captivating works of art by our very own talented Manitoba artists!
