Decter is based in Winnipeg and will be traveling to Campbell River for the opening of her new exhibition, entitled wake, opening Friday Sept. 29 at 6 p.m. and to present an artist talk, Saturday September 30 at 2 p.m. Decter is a renowned artist who has presented and exhibited her work across Canada and internationally.
