Dali at the WAG

Dali was wonderful and the portraits from the Beaverbrooke Gallery in New Brunswick were fab. I love the Group of 7 paintings, especially Emily Carr!

The Winnipeg Art Gallery is small enough that you don't get lost or suffer from exhaustion, and the exhibitions are satisfyingly dense, with lots of admire and think about. Don't miss the restaurant on the top floor! It looks out onto a beautiful roof terrace, which I think is open in the summer. The food is very good, with decent... More

I may be a bit biased since I am such a fan of Dali, the paintings and displays were great.The people giving the tour seemed passionate about this exhibit ( I could not stay with the guide since I liked to take a lot more time with each piece, but the majority of people did stick with her ).

This gallery has an excellent Inuit art collection, and the other exhibits are very representative of different times in the international and Canadian art scene.

The WAG, has in the last few years had some great travelling exhibits like "100 Masters" and " the Beaverbrook/ Dali" exhibit. Looking forward to the Greco-Roman exhibit in April. While these are good there are also some interesting Inuit and regional pieces on display. The theater aslo holds some interesting works on everything from Northern Experiences to the Cannes...

I have been to the WAG for many large charitable events, very good dining and a nice changing collection of exhibits. The Curator keeps the place very nice and interesting for such a small praire town.

A good gallery with a decent collection. Their collection of Inuit art is excellent, and the Salvador Dali exhibit was fantastic.

Everywhere that you go there are monster museums with blockbuster shows; but I think that I prefer "bite sized" institutions. This is in no way a put down. WAG has relatively small spaces - but they are used to great effect - especially the stairways and the lobby. Marvel at the genius of Brian Jungen's "Vienna" a prehistoric shark-like creature...

I thought it was great to be able to lay beneath a Dali and experience the dimension of his work and I felt the exhibit had great variety. His most popular work wasn't there, but I like what they had even better.

A fantastic mid afternoon experience. We had to take in the Dali exhibit and it did not disappoint! The WAG continues to bring in some great artists and we look forward to seeing more in the future!
