About the show:

The Manitoba Quickdraw Art Club is a group of artists 'Drawn Together' through the unique combination of a shared passion for creating art, geography and their place in time with access to social media. In February 2017 a small group of Manitoba artists were invited to join an experimental social media Facebook group, created by Lori Zebiere, with the goal being to inspire each other through periodic drawing challenges. Members were encouraged to invite others who they thought would enjoy the challenge experience. Through word of mouth and the power of social media sharing, the group has grown to nearly 60 members with challenges issued on a monthly basis.

This show celebrates a special contemporary bond, the online internet relationship, and its ability to overcome distance. Many of the MQAC members live in remote rural areas and given our long winters and often treacherous travel conditions feel isolated for many months of the year. Social media is the perfect way to overcome this isolation and continue to remain inspired and connected to a relevant and regional artistic community.

This entire show from concept, participants and organization has been done online, primarily via the Facebook group discussions and Messenger. The resulting exhibition will unite artists from the big city art hub of Winnipeg through to the smallest towns and villages. Artists from places like Beausejour, Dauphin, Elm Creek, Garson, Thalberg will all be Drawn Together displaying works for this first in-real-life MQAC Member's show.
