Since First Fridays launched in 2010 to create a vibrant, year-round buzz in the Exchange District, dozens of art galleries and artist studios have opened their doors to give us a peek behind the scenes.
Now the program is offering an Art Talk/Art Walk series to help art lovers better understand what they're seeing as they explore Winnipeg's cultural core.
"We get a lot of people coming through the galleries and studios who are excited to be there, but they don't really know what they're looking at. They may not even have the questions to ask," says Sue Gordon, a local printmaker/painter who came up with the idea for the series.
"I just thought, I know a lot of people who don't know much about art, so let's have an educational arm of First Fridays."
The series, which kicked off in July, operates with a small grant from the Winnipeg Arts Council. The idea is to introduce Winnipeggers to some of the city's artistic movers and shakers and to give them some insight into the creative process.
Participants enjoy a dinner at the Free Press News Café (237 McDermot Ave.), followed by a lecture and interactive discussion on some aspect of art and then a guided tour of some Exchange galleries and studios.
The next event is Friday, Nov. 2, at 6 p.m. Cost is $25 per person, plus taxes.
