Gallery Co-ordinator Alan White said invitations were put out to artists in the area with the instruction to create a piece for the show.

“It will be interesting to see the variety of types of work, but also the variety of what Canada means to the artist,” he said.

My Canada will feature work from a variety of Peace Region artists in a variety of mediums—including paintings, prints, ceramics and sculpture.

Some of the artists include Mike Kroecher, Sandy Troudt, Miep Bergerjon, Charlie Parslow, and Mary Parslow, just to name a few.

White said that for some, Canada is the landscape, or the wildlife, while for others it can be something completely different.

The show is part of the Canada 150 celebrations going on at the gallery throughout the year.

White said “with it being Canada 150, Alaska Highway 75, and 25 for the North Peace Cultural Centre,” it’s a very important year for the community.

My Canadaruns from Feb. 3 to 25. An exhibition opening will take place Feb. 3 at 7 p.m. For more information, call 250-787-0992.
