She has nonetheless spread her art skills far and wide around the region and will be the centre of the next exhibition opening Thursday at the Rustad Galleria inside the Two Rivers Art Gallery.
Singleton will be on hand in person to talk about the paintings that form Real Northern Living, her collection of vibrant acrylic-on-canvas images that depict the rough and regal lifestyle of the Omineca-Cariboo region.
The opening reception will include an artist's talk by Singleton, some thoughts provided by Two Rivers Gallery curatorial staff, light refreshments and introductory social viewing of the paintings. The event is free to attend, all ages are welcome, with festivities starting at 7:30 p.m.
The show will hang until Jan. 17.
