The Rustad Galleria, located parallel to the North and South Canfor Galleries, is an exhibition space dedicated to presenting work by local and regional artists. Exhibitions in this space typically run for a month. All local and regional artists from the Regional District of Fraser Fort-George are encouraged to submit proposals.
These exhibitions are free to the public every day of the week and the Galleria space offers a compelling venue for the exploration of our regional artists.

Maureen Faulkner. December 364, 2016. Watercolour on paper.
On January 1st, 2016, Prince George artist Maureen Faulkner committed to paint an artwork per day for the duration of the year. She determined the size of her paintings would increase by an inch in both height and length each month and that she would compose a piece of automatic writing to accompany each work. Faulkner shared her paintings digitally through her social media channels and invited followers of the project to mail her objects that she could feature in her paintings. This multidimensional body of work has been an exercise in commitment, daily reflection, and communication.
