Immigrant

'"The inescapable burden of the immigrant is forever to be pulled between two worlds"

Those words are written across one of the pieces in a new exhibit at the Thunder Bay Art Gallery. It's called Immigrant, and it's by southwestern Ontario artist Rosemary Sloot. She was born in Simcoe, just two months after her family moved to Canada from Holland.

Rosemary Sloot speaks about her collection tonight (fri) at the Gallery. But first she spoke with host Cathy Alex.
