The Portage and District Arts Centre is currently featuring a members' show in its main gallery, and the boardroom gallery.

Marketing and Events Coordinator Lee Beaton says they had an artist who for personal reasons had to withdraw from a planned exhibition, so she was told to book another show and decided to put on an exhibit to showcase the Centre's own members.

Beaton notes a lot of members had been asking about this kind of event, adding when she first became involved with the Arts Centre one of the things she was told was to put her work into the members' show. She says it was great, so she really encouraged all their artists to participate.

Beaton says it's a wonderful opportunity to exhibit your work alongside some of the much more professional artists in a group show. She adds she's very excited because it's turned into quite an eclectic exhibition. The members' show runs until November 18th, with the official opening October 26th.
