Donate to the Manitoba Society of Artists

How are donations used?

One of the objectives of MSA is to celebrate outstanding Manitoba artists.  For 85 years, MSA has organized and sponsored the Manitoba Open Juried Competition and Exhibition for which All Manitoba artists are eligible.


10 awards in various categories are presented in special recognition. Several of these awards have been funded by families in memory of long-time MSA members, and we gratefully recognize the support from families of: W. Cliff Packer, Brian J. Hyslop, Lynn Sissons, William J. Birtles, and Barbara Cook Endres.


MSA also uses donations to support bursaries to art school or graphic arts programs at Brandon University and Red River College, and to engage speakers for the MSA Art Conference.
