The Smithers Art Gallery has kicked off its 2022 season in a unique way.
Gallery manager Nicole Chernish said during the pandemic, workshops, either online or in-person, have been very popular.
“Art has been a beacon of light for many during the past two years of this ongoing pandemic and the Smithers Art Gallery wants to celebrate all those folks in our community who participated in our workshops — feeding their creative spirit during this time,” she said in a press release.
The exhibition, which opened Feb. 8 and runs to the 26, features art created by students in workshops such as Art Without Intent, Little and Young Artists Club, Teen Studio Sessions and Woodcut Printmaking.
“Our dedicated instructors and motivated participants have created some truly amazing work – so much so that we decided to open up our gallery space to this fabulous art,” Chernish said.
