axwell Newhouse has a passion for expressing himself creatively in both painting and writing. As a resident of Chilliwack, he has shown his artwork in galleries across Canada, and has written and illustrated several books for children.  

 

In 2006, his book, Let's Go for a Ride was nominated for the Governor General Award for Children's Illustration. His latest book, Counting on Snow (published by Tundra Books) was officially launched on January 15 at the Chilliwack Art Gallery. His book invites children to count down from ten crunching caribou to one lonely moose, by finding other northern animals as they turn the pages. The exhibition Home, Community and Northern Wildlife is comprised of artwork from three of his delightful books.

Gallery Hours: 12:00 - 5:00 PM (Wed-Sat) January 15 - February 17, 2011
