The opening reception last Friday night of Triptych, at the Shatford Centre was a great event. Crowds jostled for position to see this joint juried exhibition presented by chapters of the Federation of Canadian Artists. Guest speaker Robert Genn, SFCA, spoke to a packed house. This show is worth the drive to Penticton. Runs until July 27.
