Four new art displays, include an ensemble of wood, stone, glass and metalwork sculptures by seven members of the Alberta Craft Council, a paper and book art display (Pulp Paper Pages) , also courtesy of the Alberta Craft Council, Hanging Out With The Grizzlies by Edmonton-area sculptor Jim Flaman and Snow Globe: The Long View by Seattle artist Claudia Fitch.
