Cash awards of $1,500 will be presented to artists at a closing reception on Saturday, May 5 at 3:00 p.m. Many of the artists will be present and everyone is welcome to attend. Admission to Gallery Lambton is free.
Always offering a fresh perspective, Look 2007 presents unique opportunities to both the artists and the public.
