Thank you to everyone who attended this year’s Art Expo at Assiniboia Downs!
We are thrilled to announce our winner for the People’s Choice Award for 2012, which is naturalist artist Joseph Koensgen. Folks who attended the event visited our Showcase Gallery and filled out ballots for their favourite art submission. Some of these ballots were also drawn separately so that people could win $250 gift certificates to purchase art at the Expo.
The Bid for Art auctions were new this year. Unfortunately the online portion of the auction was accidentally shut down earlier than planned. We sincerely apologize for this inconvenience. The second portion of the auction, which were ticket draws, went as planned and money was raised to support the CancerCare Manitoba Foundation.
Thank you to the CancerCare Manitoba Foundation for partnering with us this year, and for all of their help and support!
Thank you also to Winnipeg Volvo for their generous sponsorship this year. Our visitors enjoyed checking out the cars on display.
