The Hidden Hero Project

 

 

The Kootenay Gallery presents a new art project by Claire Dibble

Castlegar and area residents nominated a number of heroes via drop off points in town and at the Gallery, by phone and by completing a form on the website. Thank you to all the people who nominated our heroes.

The resulting portraits will be shown in an exhibition at Kootenay Gallery in the summer of 2019.

For more details, visit hiddenheroproject.ca or contact the Kootenay Gallery at 250 365 3337/ kootenaygallery@telus.net.

We acknowledge the financial support of the Province of British Columbia.
