Why I Love Canada - exhibition opens April 29 at Salmon Arm Art Gallery

Salmon Arm Art Gallery is pleased to present “Why I Love Canada,” a multi-media exhibition by artists aged 15 to 24 on a Canada 150 theme. Reasons to love one’s country can be many and diverse. This exhibition challenges young artists to identify and communicate what parts of our Canadian identity are loved and appreciated, and what parts are neglected and need attention. The sesquicentennial is a time of reflection and of imagining. What young people value in our nation is what helps all of us plan for the future.
