Art Exhibit Opening was a Success!

On Friday evening, April 19th, the Museum hosted the opening reception of the current exhibit, A Retrospective of Art in the Peace. This event was very well received and a grand ole' time was had by all! The Museum welcomed over 70 people to this event, which featured refreshments, fabulous music by three of Sharon Krushel's students and Danya Auger with her flute, and much mingling and chatting. Artists were on hand to speak to guests about their works and their inspirations for their work.

The exhibit celebrates 25 years since the art club was established as a society and it also celebrates  Peace River artists of the past who offered classes and enthusiasm for the pursuit of art. The Museum is grateful to artists and art collectors who have loaned works of art from early members of the art club, such as Isabel Levesque, Marilyn Moro, Fred Fox and Doreen Hutchinson, as well as works from contemporary members of the Peace of ART club.

Below are a few photographs from the evening's festivities.

The Museum sincerely thanks all those who attended this opening reception as well as all of the artists and community members who have loaned personal works or works from their private collection.
