Opening reception at the
Chilliwack Art Gallery at the Cultural Centre.
reception was very well attended, and the 70 people who came, enjoyed it,
and found it very interesting.
Some of the comments included, "Awesome; Very high quality; Very impressive;
Quite a fabulous adventure; Loved it; Interesting mix of media" and, "Lots
of interesting perspectives."
members of the Visual Arts Association were very pleased
with the success of this opening reception for the first
and only exhibition open to all of their members in the
Art Gallery in 2012. There certainly was a mixture of
techniques and media.
art was well represented, also whimsy, amusing pieces,
glass and other sculptures, pastels, acrylic and oils
portraits, plus some excellent photography including
work by the late, and very much missed Jim Britton.
exhibition continues in the Cultural Centre Art gallery
until August 25th. Don't Miss it!
