With the site of the new art gallery secured, the WAG turns its attention to planning for a new building. The Gallery newsletter reads, “It is exhilarating to know that after long and careful consideration on the part of the Board, the Art Gallery is moving steadily towards its goal.”

Various fundraising initiatives for the new building are forged by the Women’s Committee, from a “Bridge Blitz” (for which one Committee member invited as many people to her home as it could hold for a charge of $2.50 per ticket) to the selling of $5 Manitoba license plates marking the Canadian Centennial.
