Bruce Horak has been N.F.A. for two and a half years.

Bruce is often mistaken for a sighted person by people who don’t know him … and even by some who do. He has painted a series of portraits which attempt to capture his unique vision called, “The Way I See it” which will be shown at the Kelowna Art Gallery, opening January 11th, 2013. You can check out a sampling of the portraits at brucehorak.com
