AANM Gallery is currently hosting shows on a monthly basis. We show work by artists who have disabilities and d/Deaf artists.

HOURS/ADMISSION

Members of the public are welcome to drop by to view the artwork Monday to Friday 10am to 3pm. Entrance is free.  Please call 204-336-2366 to ensure the gallery is open, as we close intermittently when working offsite.

ACCESSIBILITY

We try to make our shows as accessible as possible. Service animals are welcome, pets are not. We ask that visitors refrain from using scented products for the safety of those with sensitivities. Our building is wheelchair accessible, we have accessible washrooms, and on request we offer ASL interpretive tours, remote tours, loud or quiet viewing, and description/descriptive text of each artwork. To arrange for these or other accessibility services, contact Jenel Shaw at 204-336-2366 or info@aanm.ca

The ramp access is on the East side of the building. To open the accessible door at the top of the ramp you need to push the button until the door opens. To have someone meet you at the ramp entrance you can call 204-336-2366 during business hours (M-F 10am-3pm).

GETTING TO THE GALLERY

The gallery is located downtown at 102-329 Cumberland Avenue, and is accessible by many bus routes https://app.winnipegtransit.com/navigo and bike paths (cycling maps are available at many libraries and bike shops).

City of Winnipeg street parking is metered and costs $1.75/hr.

WHAT HAPPENS AT AN ART OPENING?

Openings (the debut of a new show) are once a month from 6pm to 9pm, usually at the beginning of the month. Entrance is free. Our open-concept office is in a corner of the gallery. A staff person will be in the space. You can chat with us, ask questions, just silently look at the artwork, or request accessibility services (please request services like ASL translation 2 weeks ahead of time). During openings, we provide some snacks that don’t require plates, and some non-alcoholic bottled drinks.  Both are free, and you help yourself. Fidget toys and AANM temporary tattoos, keychains, pins, and pens are also available for free. We have books for sale, cash only. You are not obligated to buy anything.

BUYING ARTWORK

Depending on the show, original artwork or prints may be available for sale, with 100% of proceeds going to the artist. Prices will be marked next to the artwork on an information card. If you purchase a piece during a show, you will receive it when the show closes at the end of its run. More of our artist members’ work can be found here https://aanm.ca/online-exhibitions/ and here https://aanm.ca/support-artists-with-disabilities/online-gallery/. If you are interested in buying or commissioning a piece from one of our artists, contact Jenel Shaw at info@aanm.ca.    

NOW SHOWING

Opening in AANM Gallery August 5, 2022 running to August 31, 2022

We also host the show online here: https://aanm.ca/online-exhibitions/

This is a poster advertising the show of Natalie Sluis, dancer and choreographer. Two photos in cool dim tones make a backdrop for the show's title "I/Am/I," which is front and centre in plain bold white lettering. The two pictures capture Natalie in motion, her hair wild and flowing across her face with the force of her dance movements. She is pale and slim, wearing a plain drab t-shirt and pants. She is barefoot on a grey stone floor. Below the title in a chill blue font it reads "Choreography and dance by Natalie Sluis. Filmed on location at the Canadian Museum for Human Rights by Joey Forte, Music by Moodinies": Below, in tan text: “Opening August 5, 2022, 6-9pm, 102-329 Cumberland Ave, Winnipeg and http://aanm.ca/online-exhibitions.” Along the side of the poster are the logos for Arts AccessAbility Network Manitoba and Canada Council For The Arts.
