While Quesnel may have been bit with the winter bug, you wouldn’t know it inside the Quesnel Art Gallery.
Just in time for a dump of snow and cold weather, the gallery opened up “Simple, Summer,” a show of paintings made by Lesley Kuhn.
“With the current pandemic, I wanted to create a show to accentuate the beauty around us,” the poster reads. “Escape to a happier place with summer florals and landscapes from around B.C. Have hope! Travel and summer will return.”
We have all of our trucks out today cleaning up and preparing for the additional snow that is supposed to come tonight and the cold front forecasted. Our main concentration will be Class A and B roads (Hwy 97 and main connectors) to get them completely cleared. pic.twitter.com/LixOKP3evv

Summer is still a long way off, with temperatures for next week forecasted to hover around -15 degrees.
The gallery is open Tuesdays to Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
