Fort Gallery celebrates Canada’s sesquicentennial with Postcards from Canada

Show of Canadian postcards runs June 28 to July 16

In celebration of Canada’s 150th birthday, the Fort Gallery is hosting Postcards from Canada, an exhibit of original postcard-sized works of art from across Canada, June 28 to July 16.

Postcards will be hung in the gallery, and auctioned off online starting June 28 here. All proceeds will be donated to Canadian Feed the Children First Nations Nutrition Program.

The gallery’s mailbox has been bursting in the last several weeks, with artists submitting postcards from all corners of Canada; from Burns Lake, B.C. to Orillia, Ont. and Gatinau, Que. They even had a submission from a Canadian artist living in Florida.

The public is invited to the show’s opening reception, which will be held in conjunction with the gallery’s July First Thursday community arts event on Thursday, July 6 from 7 to 9 p.m.

Visit the gallery at 9048 Glover Rd. during their regular hours, Wednesday to Sunday, noon to 5 p.m.
