The opening reception will be held on Thursday, April 25 at 7 p.m. with many of the artists in attendance. The exhibition will be showing until May 25 at The Kootenay Gallery, located across from the Castlegar Airport, adjacent to the Doukhobor Discovery Centre, open Tuesday to Saturday from 10-5 p.m.
