 New Exhibit:

"Hope in the North" by Rene Jaspers

Please join us Saturday, April 29 from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm to experience Rene Jaspers Artist's Talk about her exhibit: "Hope in the North".

The art project "Hope in the North" is fueled by Rene's passion to help others.  She loves the northern parts of BC and seeks to show everyone the beauty here.  Starting at Prince George, Rene travelled 25 km, limited herself to no more than 5 steps from the car and snapped some photos.  With this limited vision she found a beautiful world that exists along our Highway 16 corridor.  This project is meant to encourage tourists and locals to go out and experience the north.  Funds from the sale of the paintings will go toward helping others to receive their drivers license and safer transportation along the Highway of Hope!
