2015                Christmas for the Critters

A group exhibition, in partnership with Kristine Lee, that raised funds and awareness for AlleyCATS Alliance. AlleyCATS Alliance provides rescue, rehabilitation, medical care and adoption of feral and orphaned cats and kittens throughout the Okanagan Valley.

2013                Healing Journeys

As part of their dual exhibition, Greenhow and Handfield invited 20 members of the community who had significant barriers to making art to create expressions of their own personal journeys within a supportive environment. Their paintings and words follow on these pages.  Healing Journeys Booklet
