Welcome to the Home Page of the Charleswood Art Group!
The Charleswood Art Group was established in 1951 by five artists and today we have 50 members who work in a variety of mediums and styles. Over the years the group has been an integral part of the Charleswood community and many of our members have become well-known artists both here in Manitoba, across the country and abroad.
Our mission is to provide a stimulating environment for our members; an environment that will nurture inspiration, creativity and opportunities to exhibit their work.
We gather weekly on Mondays, September through May at Gloria Dei Lutheran Church, Buckingham at Eldridge and during the summer months we enjoy weekly "plein air" outings around Winnipeg and rural areas. We have no regular instructors but we do arrange frequent workshops throughout the year with various Manitoba artists as well as our own talented members.
The Charleswood Art Group holds their annual SPRINGTIDE SHOW and SALE, the last weekend of April. Each year our show holds a raffle of art donated by members to support the Manitoba CancerCare Art Therapy Program.
March 2020....It was a heartbreaking decision that CAG committee members had to make as we gathered to put the finishing touches on our annual Springtide Show and Sale. Covid 19 had arrived. Medical and political decisions were being made, changing the very fabric of our lives. It was evident that our show would be a casualty of the pandemic. Plans were torn asunder, art projects temporarily abandoned, meetings cancelled, the wine that we might have enjoyed Friday opening night spilled.
However, the creative spirit undaunted, we pivoted to a virtual show 2020.
Who knew that a similar fate would befall us again in 2021? So....we carry on, painting in isolation but using technology to share our creations. Thus we welcome you to enjoy our coming Charleswood Art Group Springtide Virtual Show & Sale
April 23-May 8 2021.
