The traveling art show of the best of Arts Fest 2012 will be in the Fort St. James library starting this week.

The show is the top 10 pieces of the Arts Fest 2012, which takes place each year at a different community in the Central Interior Regional Arts Council (CIRAC).

This year’s show was in Vanderhoof, but if you missed seeing the entire Arts Fest, you can at least catch some of the highlights with this traveling exhibition.

The local arts council, being a member of CIRAC, is bringing the traveling show to the Fort St. James Bicentennial Library.

Local artist and arts council member Pat Gauthier said the annual show has been going on for over 30 years. Gauthier is one of the local arts council members who makes the show happen in Fort each year, and this year she also had a piece selected to be included in the show.

The pieces will be on display from Nov. 9-24, and there will be an opening night on Nov. 9 from 6 p.m. until 8 p.m..

The show is free to view and will also be accompanied by evening art demos on Tuesday and Friday evenings from 5 p.m. – 8 p.m..

The show will also be available to see during regular library hours (Tuesday 11:30 a.m.- 8 p.m., Wednesday and Thursday 11:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m., Friday 11:30 a.m. – 8 p.m., Saturday 11 a.m. – 3 p.m.)
