AND if you would like to drop by the gallery and paint a 4’ x 4’ canvas with a monochromatic picture of something that reflects your heritage, please do. Everything is set up for you with instructions. Over 500 of these canvases are being created throughout Cranbrook through the month of May. The collective mural will be assembled partly before and during Sam Steele Days in Balment Park. This is a Canada 150 Project sponsored by Heritage Canada and the Sam Steele Society.
