Friends of The Gallery: The reception for the annual Friends of the Gallery Exhibition presented by the Sunshine Coast Arts Council was held last Wednesday January 9 in the Doris Crowston Gallery of the Sunshine Coast Arts Centre in Sechelt. Arts Council members were asked to present one piece of art work each created during 2012. Eighty members took up the challenge which has resulted in a wonderful exhibition with an amazing mix of styles and mediums. The show will be on display until February 3. Hours at the gallery are 11am – 4pm Wednesday to Saturday, 1pm to 4pm on Sunday.
