“Artists reveal the ethos of our community by telling stories through their creative expression. What stories are they telling as we approach the 150th anniversary of Confederation? Sagas of our collective reverence toward nature. Narratives affirming our desire to connect with our origins and to explore cultures beyond our own. Anecdotes of urbanization, preservation, friendship, and hope for the future.”
