Last week, Laura Leeder and I had occasion to deliver artwork to the Kootenay Gallery of Art in Castlegar, The gallery is a feast for the eyes as you can see from their website, and it was terrific to chat with Val Field, the Executive Director there about their upcoming Christmas show.
Val recommended the Castlegar Sculpture Walk for our time in town, and it was an knockout! Laura and I wandered the downtown core for ages, examining the over 30 sculptures on display.

I was almost glad that we had missed the September 30 deadline to get our bid in on the People's Choice Award Ballot, because I could not have chosen between my three favourites.
