Naked North Gallery and Gifts, also known as Naked North Art Gallery, is comprised of an association of local artists who craft acrylic paintings, hand quilting and weaving, felted accessories, clay pots, jewellery, pencil drawings, portraits, stained glass pieces, and willow furniture, amongst other creative pieces.
DRAC, on the other hand, is an arts council that organises yearly art shows and tours annually. If you look forward to seeing how the artists at Naked North Gallery and Gifts craft their work and their artworks on display, you may attend the Frog Jog Studio Tour which they held every year.
