Courtyard Gallery honours veterans in Enderby with a mural

The artists at Courtyard Gallery have been working on various exhibitions for Canada’s 150th

Canada’s 150 is a celebration not to be missed this year. And the artists at Courtyard Gallery have been working on various events, exhibitions, and a colourful mural in their courtyard. With the generous support of the Royal Canadian Legion Branch #98 in Enderby, the Poppy Art Mural Committee was able to paint poppies on the Legion wall in honour of the veterans that served this country.

In 1948, The Royal Canadian Legion was granted the responsibility to safeguard the poppy as a sacred symbol of remembrance by the people of Canada through an act of parliament, and that is why the artists of Courtyard Gallery chose this particular image.

This mural is also made possible by the support of local businesses and organizations in Enderby. The names of all those that donated to this project are featured in the gallery.

To further enhance the idea of remembrance, the artists of Courtyard Gallery have installed a new exhibition in the gallery around the theme of poppies. It is very interesting to see how many different ways one can express poppies in a painting, with fibre or clay, or even on stained glass. The exhibition runs at Courtyard Gallery until July 15.

As of Monday, Brenda Toews hosts “cinnamon hugs” along with coffee in the courtyard Monday mornings between 10 a.m. and noon until August, weather permitting.

Couryard Gallery, 907 Belvedere St., Enderby, is open Monday to Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information, visit www.courtyardgallery.ca.
