The Prince of Wales Northern Heritage Centre (PWNHC) is presenting a new contemporary art exhibit showcasing two artists called Covered Ground.

The exhibit brings together art by Tracey Bryant and Rhonda Harder-Epp to depict northern lichen and landscapes.

Bryant is a painter and art teacher whose work includes detailed depictions of lichen and patterns found in the rocks of the Canadian Shield.

Harder-Epp is an artist from Edmonton whose paper sculptures of lichen were inspired by a visit to the territories.
