The Buhler Gallery has a collection of 450 works of art acquired through the generosity of local donors. Most of the collection has been created by Manitoba artists and there is a wide range of traditional media. The collection includes pieces created in the 1940s through to the current time.
The most important part of the collection, however, represents a particularly vibrant time in the history of artmaking in the province of Manitoba; with many of the pieces representing the period from the mid-1960s through to the late 1980s. Of particular interest is the collection of silk-screen prints made at The Grand Western Canadian Screen Shop, which includes works by Tony Tascona, Bill Lobchuk, Winston Leathers, Joe Fafard, Jackson Beardy, Len Anthony, Vic Cicansky, and many others.
We want to thank Heritage Manitoba for their invaluable support. Through their generosity we have been able to fully conserve 17 works in the collection. These artworks will be safe in the Buhler collection for visitors to enjoy for years to come.
