THE Winnipeg Art Gallery's centennial exhibition, 100 Masters: Only in Canada, has had its run extended until Labour Day on Sept. 2.

"This exhibition has obviously resonated with people, making it the best attended show in the WAG's history and a fitting tribute for the WAG's centennial," says Stephen Borys, WAG director and CEO. "As of yesterday, over 40,000 people have seen the show and we are anticipating final attendance of 50,000."

100 Masters: Only in Canada, originally scheduled to close on Aug. 18, brings together some of the world's greatest artists under one roof, including Rembrandt, van Gogh, Renoir, Monet, Picasso and Warhol. Thirty Canadian and American galleries have lent their finest masterpieces to this exhibition celebrating Canada's oldest civic art gallery.

Art Eats, private tours of the exhibition that include dinner at Storm Bistro, sold out so quickly that two more were added to the original three -- and they also sold out. A sixth Art Eats will now take place on Wednesday, Aug. 28. Art Eats tickets can be purchased online at wag.ca or by calling 204-789-1290. Exhibition tours will also take place every weekend until the end of August.

Hours of operation for the WAG and the Gallery Shop until the close of the exhibition:

Monday, Tuesday: 11 a.m.-5 p.m.

Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday: 11 a.m.- 9 p.m.

Sunday: 10 a.m.- 6 p.m.

Monday, September 2: 9 a.m.- 5 p.m.
