WESTERN CANADA'S LARGEST NATURE ART SHOW


Reflections of Nature 2017
October 27 - 29, 2017

New plans for 2017 include special competitions:
- for canes and walking sticks
- for repurposing materials: "Upscaled into Art"
- of photos taken in Prince Albert National Park
- Fly tying competition for the fishermen

AND - Handcrafted Christmas ornaments to be sold in a booth with a portion of each sale going to the artist. 

AND - TO CELEBRATE CANADA 150 .... a display of the gray jay, Canadian Geographic's official choice for National Bird of Canada. We expect to see paintings, photographs, carvings and sculptures. This is not a competition - it is for display only as a celebration of Canada 150. 

We will let everyone know all the details as soon as everything is worked out.
