The 100th Annual Juried Show at the Pavilion

There was a great turnout for the Opening on December 10th and a steady number of visitors over the holidays to this historic exhibit. Our juror Michael Boss was there to share his thoughts on the works submitted and he commented ” I applaud Sketch Club Members for your desire to maintain and support this honourable Winnipeg institution.” Club member Ron Osthus was interviewed on Global and Karen will be interviewed by CJNU 93.7 FM radio this week about the show and the Sketch Club. The Assiniboine Park Conservancy has also asked us to extend the Show until March 15th, 2018.

Model Convening

As Pam winds down her model convening duties this fall we will be looking for a member to book the nude models for the upcoming year. Please contact Karen if you are willing to do this essential task for the Club. Pam can provide you with our most recent contact list.
We will also be discussing plans for booking the clothed models in the coming months as well. In past years, members agreed to each take one month a year in which they are responsible to find 3 (clothed) models to pose. You can always sweeten the pot by telling the model they will make $30.

Nothing But Nudes Show

Warehouse Artworks proved to be an excellent venue that we hope to book again in the future.

We had an excellent show opening the evening of April 1, 2016 with many people coming in to view the work and meet the artists.

“A successful opening despite the magical snowfall. The Exchange district was alive with people – a great evening!”
