Rest Stops: Mapping out the Permanent Collection

December 9, 2021 - June 5, 2022

Northern Canada’s wilderness produces some of the most unique beauty on the planet, with temperatures reaching anywhere from -40 to +40 degrees Celsius, massive windswept landscapes, and blanket skies with gradients you wouldn’t find elsewhere in the world. These are markers of home to our community members. Known for our easy going people, our love for the outdoors, and community spirit, the Peace Country’s name is definitive of both its vast scale and its citizens.


It’s often in our particularities that we can begin to define ourselves, and so artwork inspired by our unique environment is powerful to many. The Peace Country is home to many artists who honour the land through its reinvention and preservation – they’ve helped illustrate our unicity since long before the Gallery started collecting artwork.


Rest Stops: Mapping out the Permanent Collection will take visitors on a journey through artworks from our Permanent Collection that immortalize some of the Peace Country’s precious spaces. The large-scale map connects the artwork to the locations that inspired them. Through this association we hope to unravel an even greater sense of place and connection to this land and each other.
