lNVERMERE — Local artists’ co-operative The Village Arts Store has joined forces with renowned B.C. artist Joseph Cross, who is creating a series of four paintings depicting the incredible scenery of B.C.’s Mount Assiniboine Provincial Park.

The majority of profits will go directly to benefit Mount Assiniboine Park and other Kootenay Provincial Parks.

The Village Arts Store is proud to have one of his limited edition giclées, titled “Mt. Assiniboine Reflection” on display and available for sale.

“It is just like being there but without the hike,” says Rachel King, store manager.

“We here at the store feel that by providing a space for this painting to be viewed we are fulfilling one of our mandates of being good community members and that we are giving back to our community.  Mt. Assiniboine Provincial Park is such a beautiful spot, we all need to keep it safe.”

The Board of Directors along with all the artists invite everyone to stop by to view this magnificent painting of one of B.C.’s most famous and awe inspiring mountains.

Joseph Cross has been featured in International Artist Magazine, the premier magazine for artists, galleries and agents around the world.

The Village Arts Store is a proud partner on this worthwhile fundraising initiative and is working to share information and to promote this project.
