Splashes of colour are brightening up downtown Burns Lake as we move into the grey days of fall and winter.



Splashes of colour are brightening up downtown Burns Lake as we move into the grey days of fall and winter.

Shallom Johnson, formerly of Burns Lake, and her partner Andrzej Urbanski are in town for part of the week to paint a wall mural above and behind the Evergreen Mall. “I’ve been wanting to paint a wall at home for while,” said Johnson.

The mural was commissioned by Jen McPhail. Johnson is coming off a long international stint of solo and collaborative work in Germany, Poland and Switzerland.

The past six months were spent in Cape Town, South Africa, where she was the managing director for /Word of Art, a gallery, artist’s residency and studio facility. Her portfolio of work is as large as her commitment to her craft.
