Inspired by the North Saskatchewan River, 28 works by 28 artists.
Organized by the River Valley Alliance and Visual Arts Alberta – CARFAC

The exhibition represents parts of the river valley from Devon to Fort Saskatchewan, the stretch of municipalities that encompass the River Valley Alliance. Some artists worked realistically, looking at the valley from a distance, while others focused on objects and detritus they found on walks in the river valley. Several artists were intrigued with the concept of what a river means, while others abstracted meaning they found in nature
