“We have all these new people (submitting art) which is really neat,” Quesnel Art Gallery director Marguerite Hall said.

Hall said the gallery relies on Facebook and word of mouth to get submissions.

“We fill this every year,” she said. “We’re never sure if we’re going to, and we always do.”

Hall was happy with the submissions, calling the exhibit “clean and fresh.”

The Art Gallery also has new technology, bringing their gift shop into the 21st century with a bar-code reader and computer.
