In-person History & heritage Visual arts

ASA Gallery will be exhibiting "The Art of Freedom," an exhibition by Burns Visual Arts Society as a part of Remembrance Day commemorations. This exhibition is free to attend and open to all. ASA Gallery asks all visitors to follow provincial health policies by wearing a mask and staying socially distanced at all times. Exhibition Statement "Most Canadians have not experienced the horrors of war: the waste of human life and the loss of the dreams of ordinary people during times of conflict. Our exhibit consists of works that celebrate fanciful flights of freedom; talismans that are symbols of life, death, hope, respect, memory, and resilience; tributes to all who seek freedom and rise above the challenges of war and tragedy. These themes are explored in a multiplicity of media and in a contemporary way. This exhibition would like to create a dialog between historical and contemporary concepts of freedom." When?
