Local artists will have their chance to show their skills at the NorVA Centre following the holidays.
The centre will be closed over the Christmas season, but three area artists will have exhibits and special opening receptions at the centre in the new year.
In January, the centre will feature art from local artists Beatrice Walker and Doug Dmytriw. Walker’s portion of the exhibit will consist of her photography, while Dmytriw’ exhibit showcases his traditional sculptures.
Both Dmytriw and Walker will start their exhibition with a reception and an artist talk at NorVA on Jan. 9.
In February, another local artist will have the limelight. Brandy Bloxom, who won this year’s People’s Choice award at the Northern Juried Art Exhibition and received provincial honours at this year’s Northern and Rural Juried Art Show in Winnipeg, will be the featured artist throughout the month. The exhibition will begin with an opening reception on Feb. 6 at the centre.
