Art Gallery of Peterborough logoPeterborough ON - The Art Gallery of Peterborough would like to show our appreciation to the countless heroes in the Peterborough community.

"At the AGP, we have many heroes, but wanted to especially thank those who are working tirelessly to keep our community safe and healthy," said Celeste Scopelites, the Gallery director. "To all our first responders, medical professionals, City services, and all the citizens of Peterborough who work to keep our shelves stocked and the community running - thank you!"

The Gallery is asking local children and families to make and share artwork to thank their heroes. Artworks can be a drawing, a painting, or even a sculpture, as long as it is creative. Heroes can be anyone, just explain what makes them a hero in a brief description (maximum 150 words) with the submission.

"Join us as we share some love and show our appreciation for the many amazing people who make Peterborough such a wonderful community to live in," invited Scopelites.

How to make a submission:
