Come out, meet the artists, and enjoy an evening filled with art and music - Smithers' very own "Backroads Home" (Michelle and Rob Nisbett) will be playing. Free admission, all welcome!

Caitlin Ambery (Smithers), Patricia Vickers (North Vancouver) and Sophia Mather (Lax Kw'alaams) are showing together for the first time in “Under a Northern Sky”. Joined together by friendship that spans over 25 years, the three artists unite to portray life in the north. The exhibition is an expression of gratitude for the beauty that thrives under a northern sky.

Tara Irwin is a Terrace-based artist. This show captures some of the beautiful landscapes in the Bulkley Valley and slightly beyond, inspired by pictures taken by local photographers. A theme of heavy shadows evolved as Irwin developed the collection, but a close-up view reveals an array of colours and lights in the shadows.
