Auld Acquaintance II is the Fort Gallery's latest show and brings together a group of artists showcasing their recent works.
"For years the gallery has provided a positive, supportive environment for artists to explore and develop, which then helps them to pursue other opportunities" explained gallery manager Tim Fraser. "Just as a family
member might leave the home for other opportunities, we still remain a part of each other's history, and this would be the gallery's equivalent of a family reunion."
At one time were all members of the Fort Gallery. Scheduled to be part of this show will be Scott Gordon, Fiona Moes, Suzanne Northcott, Terry Nurmi, Judy Nygren, Betty Spackman, Billie Jo Thomson and Donna Usher. Auld Acquaintance II runs to March 24. Find out more at www.fortgallery.ca.
"People will walk in to the gallery, and inquire about favourite artists who were members here in the past", said Fraser. "We always look forward to seeing the artists again, and it's a wonderful opportunity to see where their creativity has led them."
