In early 2017, under the patronage of the Mayor of Fort Erie, and collaboration of the Historic Bell Tower Community Arts & Entertainment Complex in Fort Erie, a new initiative was created; The Gaber & Bell Tower Artist Mentorship Program and Artist Discovery Exhibit” that supports the strategic directions and actions defined in the Culture Plan throughout the Niagara Region of Ontario, in Canada.

The main objective of this Program is to identify regional exceptional artists talents through the Artist Discovery Exhibit and mentor them to an International level.
