Diverse displays of peace

The latest exhibit from the Flying Colours artists group on display until March 25

The latest exhibit from the Flying Colours artists group reminds us to stop and find some peace as we all swing back in to our busy lives.

Twenty local artists have a vivid tapestry of works on the wall at the Cultural Centre’s Peace Gallery North, from Mike Kroecher and Ken Lane’s oil and acrylics on canvas, to the felt and silk mixed media of Miep Burgerjon and Lorna Penner.

The theme and title of the show is “Peace in the North Peace.”

“Whatever brings you that joy or that inner happiness, whether that’s with your artwork, how you express yourself, everything,” says Penner, with the Flying Colours Artists Association.

Other works being exhibited are a beautiful carved yellow cedar sculpture by Ken Forest, encaustic wax paintings by Irene Gut, linocuts by Linda Haugen, and watercolours by Suzon Anne Tremblay.

Artists featured also include Sandy Troudt, Karin Kroecher, Mary and Charlie Parslow, Rosemary Landry, Julene Gunther, Diana Hofmann, Sue Everton, Lindsay Jardine, Lisa Frankham, and Pamela Den Ouden.

“It’s super diverse,” says Penner. “Our group is growing all the time, and changing and morphing all the time.”

The exhibit is on display until March 25 at the North Peace Cultural Centre.
