The next exhibition opening at the Kootenay Gallery of Art celebrates contemporary craft and art created by 26 artists who teach and work at the Kootenay School of the Arts at Selkirk College in Nelson.

The curriculum at the Kootenay School of the Arts includes four areas of study: metal, clay, fibre, jewelry and small object design, along with studies of drawing, design and professional practices.

This important exhibition reveals the diversity of ideas and materials found in the work of these art educators and the quality of art and craft produced and taught in the West Kootenay.

This exhibition, entitled Connections Materialized, will open with a reception on Friday at 7 p.m., an opportunity for the public to meet the artists and learn about their diverse disciplines. It runs until April 23.

The gallery is open Tuesday to Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
