You are invited to the opening of ART EXPRESS’D in Whitehorse! Join the Winnipeg Art Gallery and Yukon Arts Centre as we continue our cross-Canada art adventure.

Workshops: June 28-30, 1-5pm & July 1 (Canada Day), 12-4pm, July 3, 1-4:30pm
Artist Jessie Buchanan will lead participants through each workshop, creating acrylic paintings in response to questions: “How do you understand yourself as a Canadian?” and “Do you feel connected with your land and/or environment?” Together, Jessie and participants will design works that encompass geography, spirituality, and landscape to unite the Canadian Identity across the country. On Canada Day (July 1), Jessie will lead a community mural project. See you there! Learn more about Jessie here.
