      Although the Hamiota Art Club was officially organized in Oct. 1969, a group of ladies, namely Mrs. Kathleen Rutherford (since deceased), Mrs. Dorothy MacMillan (later Mrs. R. Riddick), Mrs. Bessie Houck, and Mrs. Ethel Stewart (since de­ceased) had been having get-togethers to go out sketching for several years.

      The Club was formed with Mrs. Anne Perlmutter as instructor, who taught how to work in charcoal, pencil and oil media. In later years, instruction has been expanded to include watercolor, soft pastel, oil pastel, India ink and acrylic media by instructors from Virden, Brandon, Strathclair, Oak Lake, and Erickson in Manitoba, and from Marchwell, Sas­katchewan, as well as some local artists.

      The highlight of the Club year is the annual Art Show and Tea, which is held in the spring. This has created a great deal of interest, not only in the Club, but also in the community.

      The Club members have also had a display of pictures at the Hamiota Summer Fair for several years. Pictures painted by the members are hung in the local Heritage Arts Centre, Royal Bank and Credit Union for viewing during the year.

      Upstairs in the Heritage Arts Centre, the Hamiota Art Group meets every Thursday from October to April in a warm and sunny workspace and welcomes all level of artists to join them from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. or any part of the day you can manage. Work on your own art projects or join them for workshops and classes as they are scheduled.

      It is a great opportunity to learn from peers in a very welcoming environment. A fresh schedule of workshops, classes, exhibitions, and special events is made available each spring and can be picked up from the Arts Council office.

      “Art and culture are important to the development and vitality of a community. In a grassroots fashion, the Council promotes the development of art and culture for citizens of all ages within the Midwest Recreation District. To this end, the Council provides a forum for art exhibitions, performances, dance, music, as well as other activities which encourage individual self- expression.”

      The Mid- West Arts Council promotes and is willing to provide art and cultural opportunities for all age groups in the Hamiota Municipality, and Wallace- Woodworth, Oakview, and Prairie View.

      It is a community touchstone for anyone looking for information, classes or events in a wide variety of arts disciplines – dance, drama, visual arts, quilting, and music, or cultural and seasonal special events like summertime teas, street markets, buskers, and BBQ’s.

      The Arts Council’s main office is located in the Heritage Arts Centre, a historic Royal Bank building, beautifully renovated by community volunteers to create a warm and inviting exhibition space. It features a kaleidoscope of exhibitions, which change monthly, from local and not- so- local artists, photographers, sculptors, needlework, and other artisans. It also houses the Gallery Gift Shop with a display of local artisans work available for sale –everything from quilted runners, hand- made jewelry and sculptures to knitted children’s sweaters and baby gifts. The gift shop rotates its’ work every three months so there is always something new to see and buy. The former bank manager’s office is a great spot to stop for a cup of coffee, sit by the working fireplace, admire the restored woodwork and discuss what arts discipline or idea you’ve always wanted to explore or get started anywhere in the Arts Council’s catchment area.

      In summer, Thursday is ‘Arts Centre’ day in Hamiota with “Tea at the Old Bank” running each Thursday from 2- 4 p.m. from June to September. “The Sidewalk Dog” Café opens for business out front in July and runs throughout the summer also on Thursday from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. Buskers liven the air with music and the Street Market sells fresh vegetables and crafts for as long as there’s a crowd eager to purchase their wares.

      Throughout the year, the Arts Council provides special youth activities Halloween, Christmas, art classes, performers, facilitates birthday parties);organizes musical events of both local and touring talent; and opportunities for social and cultural activities like our Scottish Ceilidh in February. They are eager to encourage budding artists in area classrooms through school workshops or adult classes as well.

      Drop in, check out the exhibitions, sign up for classes – there’s always something new going on and the Arts Council looks forward to meeting you and helping you develop your art interests in the Mid- West Area.

      Office/Gallery/Gift Shop Hours:
      Monday, Wednesday, Friday 1:00- 4:00 pm or by appointment anytime.
