Pavilion Art Galleries
The Pavilion Art Galleries are open daily from 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 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.
Ivan Eyre Gallery (3rd Floor)
Emerging from the Lines: The Drawings & Studies of Ivan Eyre
The sketches, drawings, studies, repeated images, and unfinished works of Ivan Eyre allow us a glimpse into the artist’s process. Produced with a freer hand, using economical, malleable materials like paper, board, ink pens, graphite, and coloured pencils, drawing allowed for what Eyre described as “fewer distractions” for ideas to emerge. The drawings featured in Emerging from the Lines can also be viewed, understood, and appreciated as an independent medium in and of itself!
John P Crabb Gallery (2nd Floor)
Trees, Lakes, Prairies, Mountains: Western Canadian Landscapes in the Phillips Era
At first glance, landscape paintings tend to conduct themselves as transparent historical documents, showing us a clear image of the environments upon which our contemporary lives were built. However, in Canada, landscapes are often illustrated through particular aesthetic approaches. This exhibition explores the landscapes of western Canada through the aestheticized lenses of Walter J. Phillips and a selection of his contemporaries.
