The Immigration: A Conversation exhibition at Two Rivers Gallery runs until Oct. 9.

An art exhibition featuring works by eight local artists opened at Two Rivers Gallery on Friday.

Immigration: A Conversation showcases the work of B.C. artists Sorour Abdollahi, Aileen Bahmanipour, Lea Bucknell, José Delgado-Guevara, Gabriela Hirt, Mohadese Movahed, Rana Sahraei and Yvonne Vander Kooi. Delgado-Guevara and Sahraei both hail from Prince George.

Delgado-Guevara contributed a drawing and a sculpture to the exhibition, while Sahraei’s mixed-media  work is on display.

“I hope more than anything that this exhibition can be the beginning of a conversation in Prince George about the way that immigration has shaped the lives of our neighbours,” gallery assistant curator Kait Herlehy said in a statement issued this week. “The goal, today and always, is to build a stronger connection within our community.”

Immigration: A Conversation is on display at Two Rivers Gallery until Oct. 9.
