Birch Bark Canoe Resting at the Gallery

 Our Summer Student Departs

The Gallery said farewell to our Summer student Hannah Crawford on Friday, August 31.  Hannah was a great asset and worked diligently updating and cataloguing the Permanent Collection. She also represented the Gallery at the Wednesday night concerts in Millenium Park.  Thanks for everything you did for us, Hannah!  Have a great year with your studies at Wilfred Laurier University!
