If you’re an artist who resides in the Eastman Region then it’s time to get the creative juices flowing. The Eastman Judged Art Exhibition is being held this August Long Weekend in Lac du Bonnet, Manitoba in conjunction with the Fire & Water Music Festival.
The Eastman Judged Art Exhibition is an exciting opportunity for artists of many mediums to create and display their work. A panel of three professional art judges have been hired to adjudicate all of the entries received. The judges will also be providing a written critique for each piece of work entered into the Eastman Judged Art Exhibition. This is a great learning process for all artists.
First place winners from each of the categories will also be invited to share their winning entry in the Rural & Northern Art Exhibition at Assiniboine Park during summer 2016.
