About the Manitoba Society of Artists:

The Manitoba Society of Artists was established in 1902 originally as an organization to recognize the merits of Manitoba's outstanding artists to promote and encourage visual artists in Manitoba and to provide a western equivalent to the Ontario Society of Artists. In addition to showing work by its members, the society campaigned for an art gallery and art school in the province and arranged for touring exhibits from institutions outside Winnipeg such as the Chicago Art Institute.

Today, the purpose of the Society is to promote and encourage Manitoba's emerging and professional visual artists. This is achieved by providing bursaries, awards of excellence, and organizing art exhibits. Members of the Society also enjoy social events and participate in educational ventures, such as lectures, slideshow art talks and workshops.

Although the specifics of membership have changed over the years, members have always been chosen by a jury and needed to be practicing Manitoban artists. Some notable past members of the Society have included L.L. Fitzgerald, Eric Bergman, Leo Mol, Alex J. Musgrove, Clarence Tellenius, Walter J. Phillips, Lynn Sissons, Kelly Clark, Caroline Dukes, Tony Tascona and Robert Bruce.

Currently MSA retains an active membership of 100 artists from diverse backgrounds and training. This show is comprised of 16 artists responding to an open call to current MSA members.
