Join us for the official opening of Bernadette Kernaghan’s exhibition Portraits in Oil: New Friends and Neighbours on Sunday, January 14th at 2 pm. The paintings construct a panorama of the diverse individuals Kernaghan has come into contact with since her move to PEI in 2014. Several of the portraits reflect the influence of the past, while others reference an inner aspect of the individual. Portraits in Oil will be on display until February 23rd. The Centre is open from Tuesday to Friday from 10 to 4, and 12 to 4 on Sunday. Admission is by donation. The on-site gift shop carries only Island art and craft, as well as books on local themes.
