Masters lead WAG to record surplus

  • Print

The Winnipeg Art Gallery registered its largest ever surplus, $385,716, officials announced at their recent annual meeting.

The gallery's strong finances for the 2013-14 fiscal year are still riding the wave of the 100 Masters Only in Canada exhibition, which ran from May to September 2013, and celebrated the gallery's 100th anniversary.

The gallery nearly doubled its membership, to 4,500, thanks to the exhibition, which included works from artists such as Van Gogh, Picasso and Warhol, a press release said.

Revenue from admissions and memberships made up 16 per cent of the gallery's annual budget in 2013-14, compared to just eight per cent a year earlier, the release said. The gallery's shop also generated $120,000 in revenue during the show.

In 2015, the gallery is hosting Olympus: the Greco-Roman Collections of Berlin, priceless antiquities from ancient Greece and Rome, which are part of the collection of the Berlin State Museums.
