CARSTAIRS - Local artist Gwen Day will be taking part in the annual International Art and Found Day on March 12, with an original painting up for grabs again this year.

This will be her third year participating in the fun community event.

Under the program, artists hide a piece of their art somewhere in the community – in Day’s case, in the town of Carstairs – and give clues leading up to the day as to where the piece can be found.

Each piece is carefully packaged and marked with the hashtag #ArtandFoundDay.

“It’s always been really fun,” said Day.

Clues as to the location of Day’s painting can be found on her Facebook page and Instagram, at gwendayart.

Fellow Carstairs artist Karen Pedersen is also taking part in this year’s event.
