The Central Interior Regional Arts Council (CIRAC) is bringing their annual art show to Vanderhoof this month.

It will be the closest the event has ever been to Fort St. James in local memory, and includes a juried art show of local and regional artists.

Fort St. James normally sees only the top 10 pieces from the exhibit which are selected as part of a touring art show after the Artsfest work is judged.

The 10 pieces then tour communities across the central interior.

This year’s Artsfest is being held at the College of New Caledonia in Vanderhoof from April 27 to May 25. Opening night will be held April 27 at 6 p.m..
