Behind the Lines is a partnership between: the Penticton Art Gallery and the Cyrrus Gallery Damascus. Curated by Paul Crawford, Penticton Art Gallery, BC

This is an exhibition which is not for the faint of heart, but is also one that affirms the incredible capacity of the human spirit to not only survive the most unimaginable circumstances but thrive. These artists powerful work stands as a testament to their existence and will inspire similar voices for generations to come.
