The Blue Trail exhibition opens at Salmon Arm Art Gallery on June 2, 2017

Salmon Arm Art Gallery is pleased to present The Blue Trail, a visual dialogue about Canada’s diverse waterways. Seven artists are featured, and each delve into a type of waterway familiar to Canadians; oceans, lakes, rivers, streams, marshlands, glaciers and waterfalls. New works by painters David Alexander, Lisa Figueroa, Barry Rafuse, Linda Franklin, Herald Nix and Valerie Rogers will be featured, with glass works by Amanda King-Bloom. A clean abundant water supply is the pride of many Canadians, however this precious resource is at risk. This dialogue aims to engage visitors in the beauty, purpose, vitality and the challenge of protecting our water systems.

The exhibition opens on Friday, June 2 at 7pm with live music and refreshments. Everyone is welcome to attend, many of the artists will be present. The exhibition continues to July 15, 2017, with Coffee Break and Artist Talk day on Thursday, June 15 at 2pm. Gallery hours are Tuesday to Saturday, 11am to 4pm. The Blue Trail is generously sponsored by Salmar Community Association and Shuswap Film Society. 

Ongoing Gallery programs include Family Saturdays, a drop-in art making session for families with children of all ages, every Saturday from 11am to 3:30pm. On the second Tuesday of each month, an Artist Trading Card session happens from 3pm to 4pm. Curatorial tours for groups are available by contacting the Education Coordinator at the Gallery.
