Canada 150 show travels to Arbor Gallery

As part of this year’s celebration of Canada’s 150th birthday, Arbor Gallery Cultural Centre will be presenting a generous sample of local art work celebrating Canada’s 150th.  CAPRAC (Prescott-Russell Arts Council) worked with 150 local artists, writers, and performers in putting together a cultural celebration of Canada. The exhibition, called “150 Reasons To Be Canadian”, had its recent grand opening last weekend in Rockland. According to Mark Greenwald, president of the gallery board, “I was at that recent vernissage, and it was so wonderful to see so many people enjoy such a vivid abundance of images, texts, and performances celebrating Canada; and starting next Friday, for the month of November, the gallery will show a generous sample of these marvelous works. I can’t wait to see these pieces in our exhibition hall while our GIFTED show continues in our Gift Shoppe.”

The Canada 150 Show starts at the Arbor Gallery on Friday, Nov. 3 and continues until Nov. 30. A vernissage will be held on Sunday, Nov. 5, from 1 to 3 p.m. The gallery is located at 36 Home Avenue and is open from Wednesdays to Sundays, from noon to 4 p.m. For more information: www.arborgallery.org
