One exhibit runs until July 27, while the others conclude June 28

Three new exhibits have opened at the Kamloops Art Council's Old Courthouse Cultural Centre downtown.

The new exhibits will run from June 3, featuring the work of three artists from the region.

Redefining the Perspective is a Kamloops-based initiative showcasing and supporting Indigenous art. The exhibit features a variety of media, including mixed, 2D and 3D art, textiles and jewelry.

The exhibit will run in the alcove and hallway of the Old Courthouse Cultural Centre until July 28.

From June 3 to June 28, catch Celebrating My Nigerian Roots, the works of Raluchukwu Ojah, in the vault gallery of the centre.

Ojah is currently studying at Thompson Rivers University in his third year and aiming to start an art gallery. Media include pencils, oil paints and fabric, with an interest in contemporary issues.

Wildebirds, Wildebeasts and Wildewoods II will feature the work of Marlene Wildeman in the KAC main gallery until June 28.

Wildeman taught English and French in the Kamloops-Thompson school district for 17 years, taking up painting near the time she retired and hosting her first solo exhibition just one year later. Her work was juried in to the Federation of Canadian Artists and her preferred media is acrylic on canvas.

The gallery, located at 7 West Seymour St., is open Tuesdays to Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day.
