Art of the Peace

Did you know that a local artist and writer, Wendy Stefansson, is the editor of a beautiful magazine called Art of the Peace? This is a publication of the Art of the Peace Visual Arts Association, with financial assistance from the Alberta Foundation for the Arts and the City of Grande Prairie Arts Development Fund.

Art of the Peace is available in Peace River at Frameworks (9903-100th Ave.) and Claire's Custom Framing (10002-100 St.), in many locations in Grande Prairie and around the Peace Country, as well as in PDF format.

Inside there is a wealth of fascinating information about artists and art connected with the Peace Country. The "Exhibitions & Opportunities" section highlights the variety of events that are available all around the whole Peace Country--South and North and into BC.

The Spring/Summer edition includes an Artist & Gallery Directory that is a great guide to have on hand to help plan outings around the Peace.

What a wealth of talent resides in the Peace Country--check out Art of the Peace--maybe you'll find a local artist that intrigues you enough to consider a purchase.
