Grace Campbell served as public and regional librarian in Prince Albert from 1955 to 1973. Born in Scotland, Grace obtained her Library Science degree from McGill University and worked as a librarian in Prince Edward Island for many years. Encouraged by her friend Marion Gilroy, Grace migrated to Prince Albert in 1950.
During her tenure, Grace advanced the library’s presence in the community and oversaw the expansion of the regional library and the design of the John M. Cuelenaere Public Library. She retired to Victoria, BC in 1973, a few weeks before the grand opening of the Cuelenaere Library. The Library’s art gallery was named in her honour.

The World As I See It by Anonymous
Her artwork has been inspired by people, places, experiences, her imagination, movies and from books she has read from one of her favorite places. . .this library.
Many of the works in this exhibition were created during the pandemic.
She is thirteen years old and was born and raised in Prince Albert. A constant interest for her has always been reading and art. Her parents put a washable marker in her hand as soon as she could hold it and things just kept evolving from there. Now a good book and a sketch pad are her constant companions.
Her dream is to attend an art school one day and travel to Italy and learn to make authentic Italian pasta.
Thank-you for taking time from your day to view her exhibition!
