There were plenty of options for Mom at the Yellowknife Spring Trade Show this past weekend.

Among them, registered artists from the NWT Arts Program who were showcasing their varying mediums and products. 

A recognized and trusted branding program, NWTArts promotes and protects NWT art in local, national and international markets.
