The opening of a new home-based art gallery by painter Pat Gauthier was well-attended on March 14, despite a snowstorm.

Over 20 people from eight years old to the aged of 88 braved the blowing snow and bad roads to enjoy Gauthier’s art works depicting the local area.

Gauthier said she was impressed with the toughness of the northern art lovers and she thanked her husband for taking the time to plough the road to the highway so no one had any problem getting in or out.

The gallery is located at the couple’s ranch on Frost Road, the turn to Frost Road is across from the southern entrance to Airport Road, so it was a bit of a drive for those from town in a snowstorm.

“It’s a wonderful place to have a studio/gallery our view is a fantastic inspiration,” said Gauthier in an email about the event.
