We were heading to this Kootenay city for two reasons. First was to change out some work at the Kootenay Art Gallery and the second was to view the Sixth Annual Castlegar Sculpturewalk, another texture/colour feast for the eyes.

Normally, when I head out on an art date, it's with my artist friends but this trip was shared with my husband John, a history buff. That meant a trip to the Castlegar CPR Museum was in order. John, trouble-maker extraordinaire, wound up in the jail there...please, don't ask for details.
Apart from the bail money lost it was a great day, and one of those perfect artist dates to tickle the muse. I'm wondering now where I can find 11,000 three-inch rusted nails to create my own sculpture.
