Lottie Kozak’s piece, titled ‘Life and Death,’ is among many works on display in the Peak Year III exhibit. The description for this piece reads: “I’ve watched the animals in the forest for many years. I can see the change. I know bears. I see what is happening to them. They are weakened by this change. Not enough berries and not enough salmon makes too many hungry bears. Then it’s a problem.” (Jodi Brak/Salmon Arm Observer)
