2022 Fall Chapter show 

November 27th to December 22, 2022 

Beaverlodge Area Cultural Centre

Beaverlodge, Alberta

PRFCA artists will define beauty as each of us sees it.  Beauty is defined as the quality present in a thing, place or person that gives intense pleasure or deep satisfaction to the mind, whether arising from sensory manifestations as in shape, colour, sound or a meaningful design or pattern. For this show, artists are asked to share their personal views, inspired by and perhaps related to meaningful experiences, favourite memories or even uplifting colour, in their own unique styles and preferred media.  By drawing on the beauty of our northern surroundings, the people and places or feelings that inspire and bring joy to our lives, a close connection between artists and viewers through art are often elevated. This connection may even help us stay positive during challenging times.
