Thursday evening, supporters of Altona’s Gallery in the Park got a sneak peek at the first exhibition of the season featuring work from Ontario’s Lorraine Roy and the local Buffalo Creek Artists group. One of those members, Margruite Krahn, unveiled pieces from her new venture of combining the interpretation of music visually with stop motion art and video. Margruite is one of six members of the group who are part of season one. You can see all of the pieces inside the Schwartz House on the second floor.

Meanwhile, on the first floor, you can enjoy Lorraine Roy’s Woven Woods: A Journey Through the Forest, an exhibit featuring a collection of twelve round fabric wall hangings that interpret the fascinating system of tree root communication facilitated by forest fungi.

On top of that, a new sculpture was unveiled in the sculpture garden… Cubic-Rubik by Elena Bulatova! The installation of the latest addition to the Gallery in the Park sculpture garden was sponsored by Friesens Corporation.
