The PRAS Art Space has been exhibiting a collection of paintings by Bruce Muir. This exhibit has been open to the public throughout the Summer Festival and will continue to be open to the public on Tuesdays and Thursday from 10am - 3pm. If you haven't had a chance to view the exhibit come by during the open hours and take a browse.
Bruce Muir is an active Vancouver born artist. He has angled the dark pools of the Cheakamus and Squamish Rivers for decades for wild Coho and Steelhead. His realistic paintings of West Coast wildlife have been shown across Canada and around the world and his originals can be found in many public and private collections. Bruce has won the Coho Festival Society’s art award, many times. He was named the B.C. Wildlife Federation Artist of the Year in 1994 and in 1990 his painting of a Chinook salmon was used on Canada’s Sport Fishing License Stamp. In 1999 he arranged for a donation of over $60,000 of his work to support Pacific Foundation for Understanding Nature Initiatives. Limited production prints of his “Cheakamus Coho” are available a part of this funding campaign! View other examples of Bruce’s work at http.//www.sff.bc.ca/art/BruceMuir.htm
