  • THE TALE OF ONE URBAN CREEK

  • Jul 2, 2022 to Aug 28, 2022
  • Location: McMillan Arts Centre
  • Description:

    In the tradition of creating installation art with a message, the OCAC and the McMillan Arts Centre are excited to present the Summer 2022 exhibit!  The Tale of One Urban Creek is the exploration in glass, photography, acrylic and steel art mediums of the beauty and fragile nature of our special urban places.
