Scenes from Western Canada
A scene. Loosely defined as a place where either real life or fictional events take place, Scenes from Western Canada the exhibition is about much more than natural scenery. There is no shortage of inspiration from the environment in Western Canada. Spoilt for natural bounty from mountains, trees, coastlines, fields, rainforests, prairies, boreal forest, and even desert, there is an abundance of natural scenery that has driven many an impassioned artist to the easel, as well as farms and ranches, parks, vineyards, suburbs, uptown, downtown, and the city streets. Everyday life, the people that live there, and the events that take place, all make up scenes from our daily lives. For more information visit www.artsits.ca.

The Art of Tea: A Celebration of Tea Bowls
A tea bowl, or chawan, is a bowl that is used for preparing and drinking tea. The ceremonial preparation and presentation involving preparing the tea is as beautiful and rooted in tradition as the vessel itself. For this exhibition, members display their handmade ceramic tea bowls. Although tea bowls are a very traditional vessel, there are many different styles and shapes for them, as is reflected in the work of Pottery Guild members.
