The collection consists of artwork in a variety of styles and mediums from various artists and patrons that have been connected to the arts council over the past 50 years.

“This year’s exhibition is a curated selection of natural landscapes and floral still lifes from the permanent collection,” a press release says. “The styles of the different works range from abstraction to hyper-realism, exploring the subject matter in oil, acrylic and watercolour paint. This selection of paintings and prints serves as an homage to the Gallery at Queen’s Park’s unique natural setting, and during our winter season, this exhibition offers a gentle reminder of the richness and vibrancy within nature.”

The gallery is in Centennial Lodge. It’s open Wednesdays from 1 to 8 p.m. and Thursdays through Sundays from 1 to 5 p.m. See www.artscouncilnewwest.org or call 604-525-3244.
