KAMLOOPS - There are many fantastic arts related groups in the Kamloops area, one of them being the Kamloops Printmakers Society.
This non-profit organization provides studio facilities for artists working in print based media.

Be sure to keep your eyes open for artworks from Linda Jules, Kelly Perry, Maureen Light, Darlene Kalynka, June Emery, Melaina Todd Ila Crawford.
