Long Description:
The building in question is the Quesnel Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation Clinic, less than a half block south of city hall. The mural, in the south side of the concrete block building, depicts mountain bikers in their natural habitat, huffing and puffing up and down primitive trails in the backcountry.

This is the second downtown Quesnel mural we've come across that was the work of local artist Maureen Wheeler. Her signature on this mural includes the year it was completed, 2011.

We noticed that the biker featured in the mural wears a Gold Rush Cycling Club sweatshirt.

Maureen Wheeler is a Quesnel artist working primarily in acrylics. She has been drawing and painting most of her life. Working for the city, she has done mural restorations and completed a large outdoor mural depicting the endangered Mountain Caribou. She designed “Sockeye Run at Likely” which was chosen to be made into the banner that hangs on light standards around the city. The Pacific Salmon Foundation also bought prints of the work, which depicts sockeye salmon in their spawning cycle, to auction at their various functions around BC. Maureen is a member of the Quesnel Art Gallery, and a regular participant in the annual August Art in the Market.
