Submitted by Mary Chalmers Main, CVAA/Photos submitted


Opening reception at the Chilliwack Art Gallery at the Cultural Centre.


he 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."

The 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.

Fiber 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.

The exhibition continues in the Cultural Centre Art gallery until August 25th. Don't Miss it!
