In honour of the150th Anniversary of Canada's Confederation, two artists are traveling the Trans-Canada Highway from coast to coast, and stopping every 150 km along the highway to find the subjects and inspiration for a series of paintings depicting the country they call home. Ten of those paintings will be on display during a special showing from July 29th to August 6th at the Colouratura Fine Art Gallery. 

Both artists have a Cape Breton connection, having taught in the Cape Breton-Victoria Regional School Board. Alison Grapes calls Sydney home but is currently teaching fine arts in the Saskatoon School Board. Carol Loeb is currently head of the art program at Lower Canada College in Montreal, but previously taught for a year at Memorial High in Sydney Mines.
