July’s back room show at the Hope Arts Gallery promises a treat for visitors who enjoy natural scenic delights.

Kimberley de Montreuil creates wonders in oil, acrylics, and felt. Her centerpiece, scenic felt work, draws viewers into a three-dimensional vision. She also features wearable items such as scarves and purses.

“My inspiration for this show is nature – the textures, colours, light all that is in my environment,” said de Montreuil.

The back room exhibit runs July 1-28. An artists reception will be held on July 6 from 7-9 p.m. at the Hope Arts Gallery, 349 Fort St. Refreshments will be served.
