Fran Mcmurchy and others are having a combined showing in the local Old Court House Gallery. The show begins with an artists reception on Friday, the 20th from 4 to 7.

The local artist community has a couple of venues in this small British Columbia town including the Secret Door showing that is becoming a monthly event in Merritt. The Secret Door shows at Brambles Bakery across from the Q101 FM station on the historic Quilchena Avenue in the cities downtown.

The Secret Door Show begins on February 3rd and is a single presenter.
Merritt’s history compresses into a short time after serious european contact in the last half of the 18 hundreds. Seven hundred locals strived to keep up with world events into the 20th century and were successful in integrating cultures into the fray.

First Nations culture is also rich and can be seen in many attractions and showings as well.
The Old Court House Gallery is open to new members to drive content. Jackie the director can be found at the gallery most weekends Thursday through Saturday 12 to 6 PM.
The Court House Gallery showing is called Elements, other presenters include Helmut Kanduth and Gale Simpson.
