Art by the River has been running for almost three years now and will be hosting a show on the August 14 and 15 weekend.

Every Saturday, the group offers a free art class from 2 p.m. until 4 p.m. for kids.

“We are here to bring all artists in Saskatoon together,” said Art by the River owner Woredemehret Haimanot, or as his friends call him, ‘We.’

Haimanot describes himself as the “helper” for artists, giving them an opportunity to show off their art and meet other artists.

“My goal is I want to bring all artists, you see we have a beautiful river, plants, beautiful everything here, so many artists come and for free sell their art.”
