Art Gallery News — April 2019

Once you've tasted Peace River water, you are sure to come back...

There are a few different sayings about drinking from the Peace, but this one seems to ring true quite often, and although Allen Kalas isn't coming back to stay, we are sure happy that the draw of the Peace River is bringing him back.

Bear, stained glass, Allen Kalas.

Canadian Wilderness - All Glassed Up is a solo show of Allen's beautiful stained glass designs. His work depicts northern birds, animals, flowers, and scenery. Please join us on Friday, May 3, 2019 from 7 to 9 p.m. Al will be here to chat with old friends and meet some new ones! 

Exploring your Creativity

On Saturday, May 11, there will be stitches being stitched, presses pressing, and a whole lot of learning. I think you can count on some great conversation, happy laughter, and some tea as well, but you must choose!

Diana and Mary are very happy to welcome you into the colourful world of Drypoint Print Making. They have gathered all you need to create your own works of art, you can just come in with your creativity to enjoy this terrific day!

Barb will be facilitating a great workshop exploring textile collage, Mind Garden. Bring a smile, needle, and a pair of scissors and you will be set for a great day!

... And before you know it, it will be June

Bright Nights in June 2019 should be "Brighter" Nights in June — each year, this event gets more exciting! Packed with special guests, shows, some "come and try this" events, an array of arts and culture, and it's all gearing Fort ST. John up for the 2020 BC Winter Games!

If you are interested in taking part in the Art Market, there is a limited number of tables available, contact the Cultural Centre at 250-785-1992 or the Gallery at 250-787-0993. 

Bev Berg is gallery co-ordinator of Peace Gallery North.
