Details of Canada 150 "What defines us?" exhibition

West Perth Public Library has an outstanding gallery space and interested artists of all ages are welcome to display their work on a rotating basis throughout the year.

The newly formed Mitchell and Area Arts Group has mounted their first exhibit. This group has been created to help highlight local artists' work, foster a sharing and learning environment for artists of all abilities and to utilize the West Perth Library facilities by mounting rotating and individual exhibitions.

The group would love to hear from anyone interested in joining.  It's free and open to any local area artist of any age or ability.  Please contact David Doyle at or 519-272-7963.
