MAWA Mentoring Artists for Women's Art 611 Main Street

Finally! The art event of the year! Munch as many cupcakes as you can handle, quaff a beverage, buy tickets for MAWA’s fabulous raffle baskets and bid on work by artists such as Eleanor Bond, Diana Thorneycroft, Aganetha Dyck, Steve Gouthro and many, many more. You might discover an emerging artist who will be the next art star to come out of Winnipeg!


This year will be better than ever, with some exciting changes! Artists will set minimum bids on their work $50 and up. We want to ensure that artwork is auctioned for an appropriate value.


If you love MAWA and want to support it, please consider donating artwork. You don’t have to be a MAWA member and we welcome pieces by artists of all genders, in all media. Please email [email protected] and let us know you will be contributing. Then fill out an artist contract (available on our website) and drop it off with your work at 611 Main Street. MAWA accepts donations:

Wednesday, March 1 from 10am-6pm

Thursday, March 2 from 10am-6pm

Friday, March 3 from 10am-6pm

Wednesday, March 8 from 10am-8pm

Thursday, March 9 from 10am-6pm

Friday, March 10 from 10am-6pm


Contributing artists receive a ticket to the event, a tax receipt equal to the amount paid for their artwork, and our eternal thanks! All proceeds go towards programming at Mentoring Artists for Women’s Art and contribute over 10% to our annual budget.


If you are a cupcake baker, please consider making a dozen or two. Our hungry auction attendees will love you for it. Email our cupcake captain, Genevieve Collins, at [email protected] to let us know if you intend to bake. All cupcake donors will be entered into a draw to win a thank you prize and there will be a prize for best decorated cupcake!


Thanks so much! We look forward to seeing you all on March 26. Art and cupcakes … how can you resist?
