Unfortunately, the 9th Annual Art Symposium that was scheduled for this weekend has been cancelled. The Art of the Peace released the following statement:

2011 Symposium Cancelled
Greetings to Peace Region Artists,
Sadly the 2011 Symposium has been cancelled, with the Northern Lights College pulling the venue, uncertainty with the airlines, and low attendance numbers, the organizing committee had no choice. Look for the Art of the Peace Symposium to resume in Fall 2012.

Despite this, preparations continue for the opening of the Art of the Peace touring exhibition at the Dawson Creek Art Gallery, this Friday, October 14th. This will be a fun evening with refreshments and a chance to see members work in a wide range of media and styles. The works selected to travel for the Art of the Peace travelling show will be announced at the opening reception. Do come out and visit with your regional artists, before the snow flys.
