Arts Alive is in its 10th year this year. A project of the North Thompson Arts Council, it was co-founded by Joanne Wright and Pat Sabiston in 2005.

Their vision was to have several local artists create artworks based on a single photograph.

In the first year nine artists created nine artworks inspired by a photograph by Sabiston called “Lichen on Seaward Rocks.”

This year 10 artists chose different media to give their interpretations of a photograph by Doris Laner.

The 10 included five members of Wells Gray Writers Circle.

The creations ranged from finger painting to mixed media to free verse and a short story.

Darlene Cowie, Noelle McCorriston and the arts council are credited with keeping Arts Alive going over the 10 years.

Cofounder Pat Sabiston unfortunately passed away in 2009.
