2020 Regional Juried Art Exhibit Adjudication Gallery

The Peace Liard Regional Arts Council  is grateful to Treaty 8, on whose traditional territory we reside.



Such amazing collaborations have occurred during these times!

In partnership with the Dawson Creek Art Gallery, prizes were donated by the Dawson Creek Chamber of Commerce , Community Futures and Brown’s Social House for our Virtual Door Prize Draw!

Five $200 Gift Cards were sponsored by the Dawson Creek Chamber of Commerce and Community Futures to be used towards the purchase of any artwork for sale in the 2020 Regional Juried Art Exhibit or for any purchase at the Dawson Creek Art Gallery – Your Choice! And no commission will be taken from the artists.

Along with the gift cards, gift certificates were donated by Brown’s Social House .
