Guest host Sara Elliott checks out some 1812 art.


There are many tributes to the Bicentennial of the War of 1812 - taking place here in Southwestern Ontario.
And local artists are a big part of the 200th anniversary.
Twenty two painters from the Association of Representational Artists created pieces honouring the war of 1812.
That exhibit opened today at the Gibson Gallery in Amherstburg.
Guest host Sara Elliott dropped by, watched some of the painters hang their work, and spoke with one of the artists about the show.
They chatted in the garden and then took a quick tour of the Gallery.
