Rene Jaspers: "Hope in the North"

Date: April 28, 2017

Join us in the Gallery at the Railway and Forestry Museum on April 29 from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm for an Artists' Talk by Rene Jaspers.

The Art Project ‘Hope in the North’ is fueled by Rene's passion to help others. She loves the northern parts of British Columbia and seeks to show everyone the beauty here. Starting at Prince George, Rene traveled 25km, limited herself to no more than 5 steps from the car and snapped some pictures. With this limited vision she found a beautiful world that exists along our Highway 16 corridor. This project is meant to encourage tourists and locals to go out and experience the north. Funds from the sale of the paintings will go toward helping others to receive their full drivers licence and safer transportation. The exhibit "Hope in the North" will be available for viewing until June 30th. For more information please contact the Railway and Forestry Museum (250) 563-7351 or email
