Interested in seeing what the new generation of local art talent looks like? If so, you may be interested in a new exhibition at Touchstones Nelson opening Friday from 7 to 9 p.m.

The exhibition will feature work in a variety of mediums, including paintings, encaustic works, etchings and three dimensional pieces. The art was produced by Grade 9 to 12 students from Mount Sentinel Secondary, L.V. Rogers Secondary, and REACH.

According to guest curator Catherine McIntosh, “the goal of this exhibition is to encourage our young artists by recognizing their hard work and giving them a taste of what it’s like to show in a public gallery. This is the first time that Touchstones Nelson has put on a youth art show and we are really impressed with the quality of the art pieces submitted.”

The exhibition runs until Sunday, May 22.
