Hosted in 2017 by the Portage & District Arts Council, the 36th annual Central Region
Juried Art Exhibition begins with an Artist Reception on April 27, 2017 from 6:00 PM to 7:00 PM in the Portage & District Arts Centre’s Main Gallery. An Opening from 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM the same evening gives the public a chance to enjoy the many art forms and see the full range of entries from talented regional artists.

Every year, artists and artisans of all skill levels, ages 15 and older who are residents of
the Central Region, submit up to three pieces for this juried exhibition. They have the
opportunity to display their work in a professional setting and receive critiques from jurors approved by the Manitoba Arts Council. A total of 40 to 45 pieces are selected from the entries to go on Tour, and start off in the Portage la Prairie Gallery from April 28 to May 27. The Tour continues in Morden from May 30 to June 30, then Carman from July 4 to 28, and finishes up in Holland from August 1 to August 31, 2017. As well, 10 pieces will be selected from the Touring entries to participate in the 2018 Manitoba Rural & Northern Juried Art Show, hosted by the Manitoba Arts Network, to be held in Winnipeg.
