Abstract WAG 

Until spring 2016, the Winnipeg Art Gallery (WAG) will have an abstract art exhibit. Abstract Objectives: Painting and Sculpture, 1950 – Present will feature primarily work by Canadian artists, including Irene Whittome and Paul Hunter. Sculpture and paintings will show how abstract changed over 60 years, including pieces that explore colour and shape, and that challenge assumptions about abstract art.
