Life is for Learning

'Return to the Garden' group art show and sale May 13 - June 10

Released by Dehlia Simper, Harrison Mills


oodside gallery launches the season with a spring group show opening on Motherís day with a garden theme and display of color that will get your creative imagination blooming.

The Show appropriately named "Return to the Garden" will celebrate the art and culture of gardening in the Fraser Valley and will explore the physical, social and spiritual aspects of gardening.

In this time of globalization, it is time to Ďreturn to the gardení as a place of refuge and re-establish a harmonious co-existence with people, genetic bio-diversity and planet. When we nurture the garden, we nurture ourselves by learning how to respect our physical body and the body of our planet, which is the garden of earth.

Curator and owner of Woodside Gallery, Dehlia Simper believes "that our spiritual and physi-cal evolution is the inner and outward reflection of self and nature."

This exhibition will sample the many diverse talents of local artists close to itís home near Agassiz, BC as well as some as far away as Vancouver. There will be paintings, photographs, prints, hand painted and constructed furniture, hand made glass, jewelry, wooden mushrooms, copper garden ornaments as well as more affordable and curious items that ĎMomí would love.

The exhibition runs from May 13 to June 10, 2012 with an opening reception at 2pm on Motherís Day, Sunday , May 13 with refreshments and door prizes.

Woodside Gallery is located at 2226 Lougheed Highway, Mount Woodside, Harrison Mills, BC.
