Pavilion Art Galleries

The Pavilion Art Galleries are open daily from 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.

One of Winnipeg's most recognizable and beloved landmarks, The Pavilion has served as the heart of Assiniboine Park for over 100 years.

The original building was constructed in 1908, one year before the Park officially opened, and replaced with the current structure in 1930 following a fire.

Today, the beautifully restored Pavilion is home to the largest collections of works by renowned Manitoba artists Ivan Eyre, Walter J. Phillips, and Clarence Tillenius. Through WAG@ThePark, a partnership with the Winnipeg Art Gallery (WAG), Park visitors enjoy free entry to expertly curated exhibitions, drawn largely from the Conservancy's collection, as well as from the WAG's vast holdings.

The Idea of Trees

This exhibition celebrates the experience of rediscovery with Ivan Eyre’s landscapes, underlining the feeling that with each encounter, the same work offers something new, something unexpected. The show brings together a group of paintings spanning fifty years of artistic production. While the drawing is the source of much of the visual vocabulary that informs Eyre’s figurative works, this is not the case with the landscapes. They are their own – his own – genre: compositions created largely from the artist’s imagination and his countless encounters with nature.
