A uniquely Canadian piece of art was unveiled last Friday evening at the Stone School Gallery and it’s the collaborative effort of local artists that makes it all the more special.
Combining the talents of nine artists, the Canada 150 logo was recreated – albeit with a twist.
Celebrating many different aspects and understandings of Canada, focusing on the natural wonders around the artists everyday, the piece sits boldly in the gallery allowing the separate sections to stand out against a black backdrop.
