Salmon Arm Art Gallery presents “In Nature’s Footsteps,” an exhibition of wildlife paintings by Valerie Rogers, opening Friday, Nov. 13 at 7 p.m.

Rogers is an award-winning Salmon Arm artist who paints high realism works, capturing the beauty, movement and colour of the wildlife of British Columbia.

Her solo exhibition will feature the six-canvas installation recently exhibited at Kelowna Airport. Her exhibition runs Nov. 14 to Dec. 12, and the artist’s talk is at 2 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 19.

Viewers may already be familiar with Rogers’ work as she was the BC Wildlife Federation’s Artist of the Year in 2008 and has just been selected as the 2016 artist.

She is dedicated to conservation efforts and supports many naturalist and environment organizations. Her in-depth studies provide a new appreciation for the fauna of our region.
