School Gallery Tours


The Portage & District Arts Centre is offering Gallery Tours for School Groups of all ages.  This is a excellent opportunity for students and faculty to see a variety of art forms from Regional Artists and is a great addition the the current Arts curriculum.  Students will be fully engaged learning the artistic process of how each piece was made and will be encouraged to interact with the Artist or Docent.  Tours are available Tuesday through Friday.  Bookings are accepted a minimum of 2 weeks prior to the tour.  Donations to the Gallery are welcome.  Contact the Portage & District Arts Centre at 204-239-6029 or email pdac@mts.net to book your tour today!

(re)drawn by Ben Davis

Manitoba Arts Network Touring Exhibition Program.

In re(drawn), Brandon-based artist Ben Davis presents a challenging project concerned with land; the many ways it may be understood and its many forms. Through drawing, painting and mixed-and multi-media work that draws on photography, cartographic research and satellite imagery, Davis explores issues related to boundaries and meaning, responding to the physical and socially-constructed terrain of place. Rooted in post-colonial theory, (re)drawn invites viewers to consider the diverse histories, narratives, functions, boundaries, meanings and values of a place. Through layering, sequencing, repetition and reconfiguring, Davis’ work suggests the possibility of multiple readings of both land and art, countering the static nature often associated with older conventions of landscape art. In relation to the tradition of landscapes, Davis situates himself, his practice and his process of interrogating, understanding, deconstructing and (re)constructing in relation to colonial acts of appropriation.

Everyone is welcome to attend the Exhibition Opening and Artist Talk, Thursday, October 27 at 7:00pm.

An exhibit by the Portage Camera Club.

The Portage Camera Club consists of both amateur and professional photographers. Members have a passion for photography and continue to learn about their craft. At meetings, members discuss photography techniques, both new and old, and also show their work to learn from each other. Members participate in photo outings to various places in Manitoba. As well, speakers from around the province are occasionally brought in to talk about various photo techniques.

The Club meets at 7:30pm in the Boardroom of the Portage & District Arts Centre on the second & fourth Mondays each month.
