he theme this show, is "LIGHT". It is an exciting choice to make for many of us, to show light in whatever our medium is. Moonlight, Sunlight, Starlight, Reflections of light, Moving out of darkness to light, Lightning strikes, Northern Lights?


"That is why we are inviting you to come to the O'Connor Group Art Gallery in the Chilliwack Cultural Centre, 9201Corbould Street and see for yourselves when the exhibit is actually on the walls. Enjoy, and be surprised and amazed with the quality and diversity of the talent displayed, from June 29th until August, 5th Wednesdays through Saturdays, from 12 noon until 5 , and from 6.30 to 7.30 on some theatre evenings before your other show begins. No tickets needed for the Gallery, entry is free," says Mary Main, Chilliwack Visual Artists Association, media representative.



"It's been a few years since an individual receiving support through Chilliwack Society for Community Living walked into the doors of the O'Connor Group Art Gallery looking for inspiration. Little did we know how far that one step would take us and what a wonderful path it would lead us down! Chilliwack Society for Community Living was given the opportunity to become involved in the local art community, " says Main. "This has "Opened Doors" for so many in our Community Inclusion Services as well as individuals in residential programs. We are very happy to welcome the fine artists in the Society to the O'Connor Group Art Gallery once again, and ask you all to come and see for yourselves just how fine they are."


The show runs June 21-24, noon to 5 pm at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre, 9201 Corbould Street. Meet the artists at the reception June 22, 6pm-8pm.
