The gallery will also display new exhibits featuring visual artists Leanne Spanza, Trish Hardwick and Katherine Russell.

Leanne Spanza’s exhibit titled From Glacier to Glacier celebrates the diverse and stunning mountain landscapes from Glacier National Park in BC to Glacier National Park in Montana. Spanza’s travels through BC, Alberta and the Western United States have given her insight and inspiration to further refine her work.

Trish Hardwick’s exhibit Waste Not – Waste Not is a collection of materials that have been sitting in the Revelstoke artist’s studio for years waiting to be either tossed or used.

“I’m a hoarder when it comes to items, I think I can use in my art practice and it’s time to start putting some of those pieces to use,” said Hardwick.
