Pulse Gallery was established in 2010. Their modest goal was to promote and display original artwork by Manitoban artists and craftspeople. At the famous confluence of the Red and Assiniboine Rivers, the historic Forks Market National Monument was the customary gathering point of First Nations people, then the fur trade, and finally the Canadian National Railway. It is now the focal point for culture, entertainment, eating, recreation, and the arts in the center of Winnipeg. They couldn’t think of a better name for this thriving district than Pulse Gallery.

“Art Gallery in the exchange district. Photograhic medium is the speciality. Shows change quite often so you need to visit often. This show was of contemporary art done by 5 art students from U of M School of Art. Like a lot of contemporary art I was puzzled by some of it, and intested in a lot of it. I am still learning the language so I don’t always get what is being said. As always, it was worth the trip, so I’d keep them on the list of galleries to visit regularly” – Joy Ugo
