As part of the Winnipeg Art Gallery's Summer with the Impressionists, join us for guided tours that give you the inside story of the outsiders who forever changed the art world. The Impressionists and their followers sparked a revolution in European art by painting spontaneously out-of-doors and 'on the spot' to capture a sense of the moment. Today they are some of the most beloved artists of all time. See paintings, drawings, and sculptures by key Impressionist artists, including Cassatt, Cézanne, Degas, Monet, Renoir, and many more. Tours begin at 7pm. Free with Gallery admission; Free for WAG members. Cash bar available!
