June 6, 1950 – November 19, 2021

Bev Morton was born and raised in Edmonton and moved to Winnipeg in 1967. She fought a long and courageous battle with cancer. Bev established the Wayne Arthur Gallery in memory of her late husband who passed in 1999. Her second husband, Robert MacLellan, passed in 2020. Bev was a mentor to many young and emerging Manitoba artists.
She is survived by her sister and brother-in-law, Sandra Morton Weizman and Gabe Weizman of Calgary, and their two children, Aviva and Benji. Bev will be fondly remembered by the artists and craftspeople of Manitoba and her many friends.
In lieu of flowers, donations should be made to the Manitoba Society of Artists for the new annual "Bev Morton - Wayne Arthur Memorial Award" that will be an Open Juried Competition and Exhibition for mixed media work.

  • My late husband Don and I, always enjoyed visiting Bev and Robert at the Wayne Arthur Gallery on a Sunday afternoon when they held the opening of a featured Artist's work. These were very enjoyable events, and I have fond memories of those times. Thank you Bev, R.I.P Diane - Posted by: diane caley (Friend) on: Dec 02, 2021

  • Bev and I were friends for 20 years. She did many kind things for me. I am sad at her passing. - Posted by: Petra samec (Friend) on: Nov 28, 2021

  • I found Bev to be a very friendly and kind person and we all knew she had a great passion for showing art works for the numerous people who had one month shows or group shows in her gallery in St. Boniface. There were numerous gatherings of Manitoba artists. We shared a strong community because of Bev. We also enjoyed the poetry event where people chose a painting or three dimensional work and wrote a poem about it. Bev was also a strong fabric artist. It was a privilege to have known her and she is very much missed. - Posted by: Nora Fraser (Friend) on: Nov 27, 2021

  • So sorry to hear of Bev's passing. What a lovely lady. I know Bev from the few times I visited the Gallery within the past 3 years, It was always a joy to meet Bev. She was pleasant and easy to talk with. My sincere condolences to the Family and all her Friends - Alex - Posted by: Alexander Kulchynsky (Friend) on: Nov 27, 2021
