(Above) Liz Haan frames her view of life in the Robson Valley to artist Sheilagh Foster. The Prince George and District Community Arts Council presented their “Art of Memory” workshop March 19th in McBride. A group of five historians gathered with five artists to begin an interactive process, where the historians relate stories of living in the Robson Valley and the artists think of and create images to reflect the stories. Participant Sheilagh Foster says the art will be presented at a gala at the Prince George Public Library on May 7th, and then given to the historian whose story the image reflects. Foster says the stories and images may also be displayed in the McBride Library later on.
