The Cariboo Art Society is celebrating its 70th anniversary this year with its June show Brushes with History — Our Cariboo Roots.
This exhibition has been inspired by the societies historic roots and will feature work from current art society members in the lower gallery, while in the upper gallery space has been made for former members of the Cariboo Art Society to honour and share their art.
Some of the work in the upper gallery is on loan from private collections and some of the pieces are from the permanent art collection of the Cariboo Art Society.
This special celebration also coincides with the City of Williams Lake’s 85th birthday year.
Among the works in the show are works by the late Vivien Cowan who founded the art society with members of the Canadian Group of Seven, and her daughter, Sonja Cornwall. The show ends June 28.
