A local artist will be leaving Kitimat in August. Summer Breeze will be leaving Kitimat and heading to Ferny BC in the Kootenays on August 1st. She had a send off exhibit in the Mall on July 20th and 21st.
“I wanted to have a little exhibit, most of my items are on sale right now as a thank you to the community for all the support over the years,” said Breeze. “I feel like it’s time for change, there is an amazingly established Arts Community down there and I’m looking forward to getting to bigger and better things.”
She does plan on coming back. Her artwork will still be for sale in Kitimat and in Terrace. However, Ferny is the furthest point away from Kitimat in BC.
The exhibit also displayed works from other talented local artists including work by Eileen Hutson. Hutson plans on leaving Kitimat in 2013.
