Self-taught artist Ina Hyndman of Rivers was invited to by Midwest Arts Council to participate in a month-long showing of her paintings at Hamiota Heritage Arts Centre. Ina has participated in galleries for more than 20 years and her work is so excellent that some have been bought by the government for Manitoba’s provincial art collection, and by Manitoba Liquor Commission. She is also regularly commissioned to paint specific scenes. 


Ina selected 34 of her oil and water colour works to display for the month of September in the beautiful refurbished old bank building (Hamiota Heritage Arts Centre). All are welcome to visit there every Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 1 to 4 p.m. If you stop by Thursday afternoon (2-4 p.m.), Midwest Arts Council members will serve tea and desserts (a small fee is charged).

Ina was born in Crandall and went to school in Hamiota; she has lived in Rivers since 1956.
