The Local Arts Council is presenting a local.s show in January, at the Old Court House Gallery,Nicola avenue Merritt BC. Kim Le Clair is a publisher of a local one sheet newsletter as well as holding a job at Merritt Printing. If shes not eclectic see is industrious. Here is a view of her abilities and the DAT of the presentation from the gallery director.

January’s artist is Kim LeClair.  Her show:  A World of Influence- A Worldview of Quilts From a Small Town  will begin on January 15-30 with a reception on January 15 from 5pm to 7pm and the public is invited.

There is a show within a show as Kim shares her textiles as, “A World of Fabrics Comes to Merritt.
This promises to be a fantastic show and very different than what we have had in the past.  Kim is a wonderful artist who has chosen textiles as her main medium.  I hope you’ll all come to see this show.
The Court house Gallery is a 1840 Nicola Avenue and is open Thursdays through Saturday Noon to 6PM. Kim’s show precurses the Community Art Show in February. According to Kathy Delquist Gray the February show is open to all that would enter and pay a 5 dollar entry fee for the first item entered.
Editors note: Three entries to the Community show seems reasonable to us.
