Magnus Opus – Hocus Pocus

The Boundary Artisan Association represents professional and semi-professional artists and artisans living and creating their work from Christina Lake to Bridesville and Beaverdell.

With a membership of 15 to 20 active artists and artisans each year, the association offers professional development workshops, as well as an annual studio tour and Christmas Faire.

This is the first exhibition by Boundary Artisan Association members as a group.  Some works are practical and others whimsical but each is an original piece, designed and created by the artist and artisan in our region.
