Christi Belcourt's retrospective with Isaac Murdoch was moving and powerful. Thrilled to see her work so beautifully displayed. Gave time to ponder and take in the message, so much needed today.

We enjoyed our visit to the Art Gallery. There was an exhibit for Canada 150 which included a good range of art including art by Norval Morrisseau. By chance, we turned up on Wednesday when admission was free.
