Last week the Croatian artist displayed paintings created not by paint or pencil – but by wine. Pacalat used his trademark technique to celebrate Dalmatia, a region in Croatia.

Mayor Logan Howlett said the exhibition, held at Hamilton Hill’s Memorial Hall, was particularly relevant because many people from the the area now call Cockburn home.

The three-day exhibition was held as part of Cockburn’s sister-city relationship with Split in Croatia.
