Inside the Quesnel Art Gallery late Monday morning Marguerite Hall could be found putting intent thought how best to display the paintings of local artists.
“We don’t have as many pictures in this year as we normally do, which is fine,” she said.
“We get to it set up as a real gallery with space in between the paintings, in which normally they’re really crowded.”
The community show “Art From The Heart” is on display from now until Thursday, March 10, and features more than 30 pieces from emerging and established local artists.
One such artist is Clinton Wurm, who Hall said is new to painting and had been messing around in his garage this winter.
“All of these artists have painted something from their heart because you have to put yourself out there,” Hall noted.
“As an artist, I think you’re trusting the public who will come to see it to appreciate your skills and your vision. It’s a beautiful show—it’s gorgeous.”
The Quesnel Art Gallery and Gift Shop is open Tuesday to Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Their next show will feature art by Quesnel high school students.
