Each summer Two Rivers Gallery organizes a travelling exhibition that visits communities in the Regional District of Fraser Fort-George.  A summer student comes to Prince George to organize this project.  The exhibition travels to Mackenzie, Valemount, and McBride.

This year's show is "Life Aquatic" by Prince George artist Erich Franz.

Life Aquatic

by Erich Franz

Our 2017 exhibition is by Prince George artist Erich Franz. His recent work honours the meditative act of fly-fishing and tying through the medium of drawing. "Life Aquatic" is an exhibition of drawings that Erich Franz explains: “when undertaking these tasks one must adopt a certain rhythm – move too fast or too slow and it won’t work.” Finding this pace involves focus and repetition; once it is achieved Franz finds himself completely present in the moment, comfortably lost in the task at hand.
