The art on display has been created by members of the Art Studio at the Brockville 50+ Activity Centre (formerly known as The Shepherd's Welcome Centre).

A big thanks to Mary MacDermott who volunteers her time twice a week through two yearly semester at the Centre. She has taught, assisted, critiqued and encouraged individuals on their artistic journey from absolute beginners to becoming accomplished artist.
The Activity Centre's Art Studio members work in the medium of their choice; including watercolour, pastel, acrylic and oil.

We hope you enjoy the show.
