History of St. Vital Art Group
The SVAG was established in 1998 when Helen Anderson was asked if she would be willing to form and lead a group of painters at the St. Vital United Church. The original members of the group were: Helen Anderson, Helen Bircham, Joy French, Pat Main and June Trueman. Others that joined the group were Peter Baynton, Marion McCallum and Dorothy Naish. When the St. Vital United Church closed down in 2004, the group moved temporarily to the Windsor Community Club and eventually moved to its home at the United Church in Meadowood (UCiM).

SVAG 2Membership
The membership is limited to allow adequate working space during weekly gatherings. The membership fee is $50.00 per year payable to the Treasurer at the first meeting in September.  We have approximately 30 members and a waiting list of those wanting to join. Please leave your name at the Church office or give Isabel Cheer a call at 204-488-0207 if you would like your name added to the list.

Meetings
The group meets in the Fellowship Hall of the UCiM on Wednesday mornings, 9:30 to 11:30, starting the middle of September and running up to the April Show and Sale. There is usually a two week December break.

Shows and Sales
In addition to its annual Show and Sale at UCiM in April, SVAG displays paintings at  Great West Life and at the Mona Lisa Restaurant during the year. Many of the artists also present their work at various other venues.

And the People Said

Growing up in the United Church is where I developed my passion for social justice issues which has really shaped my life.
